Before joining FEI, Reddington served as Marshall Excelsior Co.’s sales manager for the western U.S. and Canada for more than seven years. He brings decades of experience in the fuel industry, including transportation and logistics.

Reddington will work alongside Joe Faure, the current vice president, who will retire on Dec. 31. Reddington will fully transition into vice president responsibilities by the end of the year.

“We are delighted Jim has joined our team,” says Christy Fliflet, president and CEO of FEI. “Although he has big shoes to fill, we are confident he will help us reach our true potential as we welcome new opportunities into our company.”

Faure has worked for FEI for 32 years and has ushered in the growth and success of the propane division to fit the needs of dealers throughout the U.S., according to the company. With FEI’s acquisitions of Midwest Meter and MID:COM in 2020, Faure has worked to support and grow those operations as well.

“When FEI started, we were an ag fertilizer equipment supplier,” Fliflet says. “When we entered the propane field, Joe was one of the key people that ensured we made the right steps in the right direction. The result has been the outstanding success of our propane division as we remain well positioned for growth and expansion in the future.”

FEI was founded in 1978 and is now an employee-owned company. In addition to its headquarters in Valley City, North Dakota, it operates locations in Hastings, Nebraska; Billings, Montana; Yakima, Washington; and Hampton, Iowa.
