Executive vice president at Eastern Propane retires

April 3, 2017 By    


William Curcio, executive vice president at Eastern Propane, retired from his position, according to the company.

Curcio held management positions at Eastern Propane for 38 years. He first joined the company as a vice president in the late 1970s, and he was later promoted to be an executive vice president.

“Bill has been a wonderful asset to Eastern Propane and he has my respect,” says Bob Nicholson, chairman of the board emeritus at Eastern Propane. “He deserves some retirement while he’s still healthy and enjoys golf.”

Prior to his time at Eastern Propane, Curcio worked as a city manager in Sparta, New Jersey.

“Bob Nicholson, a resident in Sparta, was on several town committees,” Curcio says. “He helped to convince me to give the propane industry a try 38 years ago.”

In addition, Curcio served the New Jersey Propane Gas Association and the New Jersey Liquefied Petroleum Gas Education & Safety board throughout his career. He represented the company at Pennsylvania Propane Gas Association and New York Propane Gas Association meetings, as well.

“Bill was instrumental to the company,” says Peter Gilman, former vice president at Eastern Propane who currently serves LP Transportation as senior vice president of operations. “He was a driving force behind the growth of the business the last 30 years. He was also a great mentor who gave his all to the company.”

Although Eastern Propane merged with Osterman Propane in August, Curcio will continue to represent the company at industry events in his retirement.

“Osterman has been gracious enough to ask me to represent them at association functions,” Curcio says. “Since they purchased Eastern Propane, they have been very professional. It’s been a good transitional experience.”
