Top 50 Indies forecourt operator, Motor Fuel Group (MFG) has appointed Simon Davis as its new fuel operations director.

Davis, who was most recently head of sales and logistics for Harvest Energy, will be responsible for the on-going business relationships with MFG’s fuel suppliers, all fuel operations and for the implementation of the company’s fuel pricing strategy at each MFG service station in order to optimise revenue and volumes across the MFG network.

Having worked with a traditional oil company, two supermarkets and a key fuels importer/blender, Simon brings some 26 years of valuable oil industry experience to the MFG management team.

Starting with Kuwait Petroleum in 1989 where he held various business, planning and logistics positions over eight years, Simon then spent the next seven years with two leading supermarkets, Morrisons and Safeway, to manage the development and growth of their filling station activities.

For the past 10 years, Simon has been a director and head of sales and logistics for Harvest Energy with full responsibility for all UK downstream sales, marketing and logistics and the introduction of the Harvest Energy forecourt brand.

Jeremy Clarke, managing director of MFG, said: “Simon has an excellent track record and he brings valuable experience which will help to strengthen our already strong fuels team. Success in this key area of our business is essential to the continued growth and profitability of MFG.”
