Petrogas Group UK, which is led by managing director Michael O'Loughlin, has grown rapidly. In last year's Top 50 Indies the company had nearly doubled site numbers in a year, increasing from 23 to 42 and leaping from 11th to sixth in the ranking. It has maintained the expansion this year adding another 12 sites to reach a total of 54 and climb to fifth place in the ranking.

Michael joined Petrogas in 1997 and, as operations manager, he built up an extensive knowledge of forecourt retailing in the Irish Republic.

In 2007 he led the company's expansion into the UK, and his keen eye for trends and customer needs has ensured the success it is now enjoying.
