Energy Distribution Partners (EDP) promoted David Stroupe to executive vice president of corporate development.

Stroupe joined the company in early 2018 as vice president of corporate development with a focus on working with propane retailers that are planning to sell their businesses. Since that time, EDP has acquired 14 propane operations across seven states, the company says.

Stroupe has more than 30 years of experience in the propane industry, beginning his career with Green Mountain Propane. He later held positions of increasing responsibility for major marketers including Heritage Propane and AmeriGas Partners, according to EDP.

Prior to joining EDP, Stroupe spent five years as president of Yankee Propane before negotiating the company’s sale to Superior Plus Energy Services. Stroupe graduated from Northeastern University in Boston.

“Dave has done an exceptional job over the past three years by more than doubling our business through the successful completion of quality acquisitions,” says Thomas Knauff, CEO of EDP. “Recently, Dave and his team have leveraged technology to find new ways to work through the acquisition process, despite the pandemic. We are fortunate to have Dave on our executive team.”

EDP, based in Chicago, is a company in the U.S. energy sector, offering propane to residential and commercial customers in California, Washington, Nevada, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia, South Carolina, Pennsylvania and New York. The company ranks No. 10 among U.S. propane marketers for sales of retail gallons, according to LP Gas’ 2021 Top Propane Retailers listing.
