New appointment in Certas Energy’s retail division

Last month Colin Levy joined Certas Energy’s retail division as company-owned operations manager.

Based at the company’s Scottish head office in Larbert, Falkirk, Colin brings almost 20 years’ experience in the forecourt retail arena, primarily with BP and partner companies. Colin’s career saw him progress from store management to area management, covering stores in Scotland, North West and North East of England.

In his new position, Colin is responsible for maintaining the safety and operational performance at the 21 Gulf and Shell branded sites owned by Certas Energy across Scotland, while looking for opportunities of potential growth which fit in with the company’s strategy.

“I was drawn towards this role at Certas after learning about the ambition within the retail team and expansion plans for the business,” commented Colin. “I pride myself on the service I provide to customers and am always looking for ways I can improve customer service levels.

“I look forward to being able to help push the retail side of the business forward, with a view to expanding the company‑owned retail forecourt position and to becoming a more prominent player in the forecourt industry.”

“We warmly welcome Colin to our growing retail team,” said retail director Ramsay MacDonald. “Colin has a proven track record of driving improvements in store standards and performance. As Colin begins to embed himself in the business, we will be looking for him to utilise his experience and develop our business even further.”

Certas Energy currently delivers fuel and lubricants to over 1,200 independent and dealer forecourts across the UK.
