Bill Gallagher
Offen Petroleum

This event is a fuel industry “major” – one event that I go out of my way to attend every year. From the speakers to the other attendees to the round table discussions, I return home with concrete action items that have helped me drive Offen’s culture and bottom line. CEOX was my first exposure to many of the ideas and tools Offen has used to grow our business more than 10x to over a billion gallons.

2022 CEOX Speakers
Dr. R Dean Foreman

CEOX Economist Speaker 2022

Is the future of Petro looking bright, green, or otherwise?

Having an economic roadmap for the coming year reduces risk and drives profitable decisions. And there is nothing more fundamental to the US economy than fuel prices! All of America is now feeling the effects of fuel policy. What will the long-term implications be for your family Petro business?

With the right knowledge, you can prepare for an uncertain future. Get facts at the CEO Exchange.

Dr. R Dean Foreman is the man behind the American Petroleum Institute’s Quarterly Outlook, and the foremost export in oil, natural gas and power. He has more than two decades of forecasting, market analysis, strategy and risk management.

We won’t call him a Petro industry crystal ball…but we could!

Dean understands petroleum supply, pricing and racks, AND other power sources. As electric vehicles and “green” energy become popular talking points for the mainstream media, with little to no economic facts, you won’t want to miss his thoughts, predictions, and recommendations. Expect clear and actionable insights to drive your business forward in 2022!
