Snapshot – Winter 2014

Tom Hewitt

Help us welcome Tom Hewitt, who took over as our general manager last July.

Tom has been in the heating oil business for 40 years, including five years as a sales representative at our sister company, Romanelli & Son, in Lindenhurst.

“My father and uncle owned an oil business and I worked there for 15 years, primarily in the field, servicing and installing heating equipment,” says Tom. “I also took turns delivering oil, dispatching and even sweeping floors when necessary. For the bulk of my career in the oil business, I spent 19 years as a manager for another established Long Island oil company.”

Tom says a key mission for him is to continue to uphold our tradition of excellent, reliable service.

“No one can knock the level of service we provide,” he says. “All of our service guys live on the North Fork, so they’re not just taking care of our customers, they’re taking care of their neighbors.”

Away from work, Tom likes to go golfing and swimming. He and his wife, Karen, who were high school sweethearts, have nine grandchildren.
