Management Team

With Wilson since 1996. It’s a privilege to carry on the legacy and tradition of the Wilson family business. I feel very fortunate that my father-in-law, Marvel Wilson, Jr., saw my potential and had the confidence in me to allow me to continue the legacy that his father started in 1926.

I really enjoy this business, and I remain committed to having Wilson provide the highest level of customer service in the oil and propane industry. I work hard with our team every day to ensure that we deliver on that mission.
