GB Oils Appoints Regional Manager For East Anglia
18th August 2012
GB Oils, which owns Pace Fuelcare, has opened a brand new depot in Ipswich to serve the needs of commercial and domestic customers in South East Anglia. In the driving seat to manage the business in this area is Keith Durrant, who has been appointed Regional Manager.
Keith, who is local to East Anglia, having lived much of his life in the Colchester area, brings a wealth of business experience to the role, having held several senior managerial positions with leading petrochemical companies, including ICI, Burmah - Castrol and Total. Through his distinguished career, Keith has worked in a number of national locations before returning to the Ipswich area and employment with GB Oils, which he joined two years ago.
As part of his new role, Keith will be responsible for managing activities in South East Anglia, which includes oil distribution depots in Shefford, Letchworth, Cambridge, Braintree, and Hadleigh, plus the newly constructed multi million pound oil distribution terminal in Ipswich. His primary objective will be to stimulate organic growth and elevate the Pace brand to become the first choice for customers across the region.
Simon Willis, General Manager at GB Oils, commented, "Keith's appointment to manage the business in South East Anglia comes following his successful work for the company during the past two years. We have no doubt that he will be fantastic in this new role and will help deliver our ambitious plans for the new depot and wider area."
Keith added, "Over the last few years, GB Oils has seen rapid expansion and become firmly established as a respected market leader, delivering quality fuel to customers across the UK. This latest initiative in establishing a brand new Ipswich sales and distribution centre demonstrates the company's commitment to strengthening our customer offering. So as well as providing competitive pricing and continuous improvements to services, my main aim is to ensure we continue to deliver exceptional standards of customer satisfaction, whilst remaining at the forefront of fuel distribution, both within East Anglia, and throughout the UK".
