Rohrig brings extensive knowledge and understanding of the 100-plus-year-old fuel service company’s operations. Having started in 2009 as Foster Fuels’ land and forestry manager, Rohrig moved to fuel quality supervisor and to director of emergency services (now known as Foster Mission Critical), where he’s served as senior vice president overseeing all day-to-day, mission-critical operations and each Foster Fuels emergency storm activation for the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) since 2018.

“Will has been an integral part of our company’s success for more than a decade, demonstrating complete understanding of the intricacies of our operations and a true dedication to our growth and development,” says Foster Fuels CEO Watt R. Foster Jr.

According to the company, Rohrig’s leadership ability has been repeatedly demonstrated through his involvement in DLA/FEMA hurricane, earthquake and ice storm responses across the nation, Puerto Rico and Haiti, as well as his daily interactions with Foster Fuels employees.

Foster Jr. reiterates that while he is not leaving the company, he will shift focus.

“By entrusting Will with Foster Fuels’ day-to-day operations, my priorities can shift more to my family, our land conservation efforts and to the Foster Foundation,” he says, adding that the company “remains more committed than ever to a legacy firmly rooted in honesty, expertise, reliability and conscientious leadership.”

Foster Fuels says it aims to support a sustainable future where economic prosperity aligns with environmental stewardship, leaving a positive and enduring impact for future generations.

The company ranked 35th on LP Gas’ 2023 list of the largest propane retailers in the U.S. LP Gas will release the 2024 list in February.
