Thomas joins Trojan following a career with Wayne Fueling Systems where he most recently served as CEO, as well as in other executive management positions. He has also held a series of marketing, planning and sales management roles in the petroleum and industrial equipment industries with companies including Chevron Corp. and Dresser Inc.
