WASHINGTON, D.C. -- SIGMA: America's Leading Fuel Marketers announced Executive Vice President Kenneth A. Doyle left the organization to pursue other opportunities.
SIGMA has formed a Transition Committee in an attempt to identify Doyle's successor. The committee will report to SIGMA President Thomas Schmidt, chairman of U.S. Venture Inc. The Transition Committee will operate under the umbrella of the Strategic Planning Committee and is composed of the SIGMA executive committee, SIGMA counsel and key SIGMA staff.
“This is a significant transition for SIGMA, and we plan to use it as an opportunity to position SIGMA for the future,” Schmidt said. “We are grateful to Ken for his many years of service and wish him well.”
Among other reasons, Doyle decided to leave SIGMA so he can focus on developing his family business, Doyle Association Consultants, founded 10 years ago by his wife, Laura.
“It is difficult to leave a membership and staff that I have enjoyed working with so much for the past 34 years,” said Doyle. “I am very proud of SIGMA’s accomplishments during my tenure at SIGMA. It is now time for someone new to take over.”
Washington, D.C.-based SIGMA was founded in 1958. The trade association serves the interests of both the branded and unbranded segments of the fuel industry, while providing information and services to its members.
