With the start of 2023, FM Fuel & Resources made a few strategic personnel promotions and new hires to serve our customers better.

Promoted to vice president, Steven Elmore II has been with the FM Fuel & Resources team for nine years as Operations Manager. Steven brings a depth of experience to his role at FM Fuel & Resources, serving customers nationally. His responsibilities include sales management, developing strategic programs to secure new customers, and ensuring current customers’ expectations are met and exceeded.

“This promotion is the confirmation of the hard work of my team and myself in successfully exceeding revenue goals for FM Fuel & Resources. I feel more than fortunate to be a key member of this team,” said Steven.

An additional promotion included Justus Heil to vice president. Justus has been with FM Fuel & Resources since 2018. In his new role as vice president, Justus will maintain higher office accounting functions, enhancing HR services, policy, and procedures within the company, including leading and advising employees and managers.

When asked about the best part of working for FM Fuel & Resources, Justus quickly answered, “FMFR recognizes and rewards performance while maintaining a great work-to-life balance.”

With the addition of a few new hires focused on providing superior customer service, FM Fuel & Resources is pleased to announce the following additions to the team.

Steve O’Hare
Steve’s focus is working with prospective customers of FM Fuel & Resources to ensure they are fully aware of the benefits of working with the fuel brokerage company and resolving any issues or areas needing attention for current customers. With 20 years within the industry, Steve still believes in outworking his competition – and we’re confident this strategy will be a win-win for FM Fuel & Resources.

Kent Rice
Though Kent joined FM Fuel & Resources in 2021, his role has enabled us to strengthen our sales resources within the market with our current customers and expand our business with new customers. Kent’s 40 years of industry knowledge and impressive professional career highlights have been a natural fit for us.

Sage Valenzuela
Like other account managers, Sage is accessible 24/7 to provide insight and support for those needing fuel or some of our other products. Sage’s degree in finance has become an excellent foundation for his role with FM Fuel & Resources. “I came into the office and saw the commodity market on the screens. The same charts I saw on the screens in the office were the same I’ve been looking at for 5 years. This was my passion for years and being able to do it for a living was my long-time goal,” explains Sage.

Jakob Jeter
Another addition to the account management team, Jakob has fully embraced his role at FM Fuel & Resources. When asked what energizes him in his position, Jakob’s answer is paramount to our role within the industry – “developing relationships to learn the needs of the customer, so I can sell fuel based on the customer’s needs.”

Tanner Sherley
Providing stellar customer service for Tanner has been an easy transition from his prior role as an enforcement officer for the State of Texas. Unparalleled customer service, coupled with the culture of FM Fuel & Resources as a big family, Tanner’s role as an account manager is to be available whenever a customer needs his knowledge or our products – any day, any time of day, regardless.

Ryan Mulder
Last but not certainly least, also a new member of the account managers team, Ryan respects that most often, he is the primary point of contact for customers of FM Fuel & Resources, and with that comes great responsibility and care. Taking care of you, our customer is one of our most honored responsibilities.

Please join us in congratulating all these gentlemen on their roles within FM Fuel & Resources.
