DALLAS -- In an effort to expand management operations and growth initiatives, Alon USA Energy Inc.’s board of directors approved changes to the company’s organizational structure.
"Following our recent acquisition of the Krotz Springs refinery, we have now tripled our refining capacity and significantly expanded our asphalt and retail businesses over the past two years," David Wiessman, executive chairman of the board for Alon USA, said in a released statement. "We have also recently re-structured our branded marketing and retail businesses into a new operating segment. In May of this year, Kyle McKeen rejoined our company as president and CEO of the new branded marketing and retail segment and is leading our IPO initiative for this segment."
Structural changes include the promotion of Joseph Israel as chief operating officer. Subsequent to this promotion, Israel was vice president of mergers and acquisitions. Michael Oster was promoted to senior vice president of mergers and acquisitions.
Joe Concienne, previously senior vice president of refining and transportation, will take the role of senior vice president of refining and supply. Concienne will be responsible for all of Alon’s refineries.
"With the structural and organizational changes announced today our board has taken the next step to expand and restructure our management team to meet the needs of our increased operations and to prepare Alon for the next level of growth and performance," Weissman said in a released statement.
