The Gas Man USA Welcomes John Rapp to the Team!

John Rapp

The Gas Man would like to give a big welcome to John Rapp–the newest member of the Petroleum Services Group!

John began his real estate career with the biggest name in the oil industry: Exxon Mobil.  After progressing to national sales management he moved to Hess. While working for Hess one of his primary responsibilities was site acquisition for new service stations. During this phase of his career, John became an expert in negotiating contractual agreements, raw land acquisitions, and competitive takeovers of existing facilities.

John has worked in real estate development and acquisitions for service stations throughout his career. In 1999, he was responsible for the site acquisition and development for a number of major retail brands including establishment of a new division of complete build-to-suit developments for 7-Eleven and Circle K. John had found his niche, and over the next 5 years he again focused on the development of free-standing, single tenant, build-to-suit gas station sites. He also managed a pipeline of site opportunities for Circle K which led to the completion of 20 new locations during his 5-year tenure.

In his most recent position as Retail Sales Manager at United Oil Company, John’s major objective was managing 80 Shell Oil service station locations growing the branded side of the business and site acquisition. He became intimately acquainted with the ins and outs of what it takes to run a profitable gas station/convenience store on a day-to-day basis with long-term results.

John’s strong background in service station site acquisition, branding and management is invaluable to the Petroleum Services Group.
