24 JULY 2016 | FUEL OIL NEWS | www.fueloilnews.com BUSINESS OPERATIONS NEWS HEATINGHELP.COM PASSES TORCH TO NEXT GENERATION HeatingHelp.com has named Erin Holohan Haskell as its new president. She will take over for her parents, Dan and Marianne Holohan. HeatingHelp.com is an online resource for information about heating systems. Dan and Marianne founded the company in 1997 and it has since blossomed into a vibrant online community. As market- ing director, Erin's expertise helped the website engage nearly 1.9 million users over the past year. Prior to HeatingHelp.com, Erin ran a marketing and design firm in the Washington, D.C.-area for twelve years. Dan and Marianne will still remain active within the industry, but Erin will take over HeatingHelp.com's day-to-day operations. Dan says, "HeatingHelp.com has always been a family business and we are delighted that it will continue to be one when Erin takes over." "I cherish the time that I've spent working with my parents at HeatingHelp.com. I am honored and thrilled to be taking over the family business," says Erin. "My goal moving forward is to continue providing valuable content, resources and a gathering place for our industry." AEC WILDCATTERS CLUB CALLS FOR SUPPORT The American Energy Coalition has been helping to fuel the growth and success of Oilheat dealers across the country for nearly a decade. But despite rising oil production and falling oil prices, misin- formation perpetrated by natural gas utilities continues to skew consumers' perceptions. Utilities devote enormous resources solely to denigrating Oilheat, leaving many Americans still unaware that the costs of natural gas and heating oil are nearing and even achieving parity. Now more than ever, our industry must come together to promote the benefits of Oilheat and inform unwitting consumers that converting to natural gas is not the answer. But we can't do it alone. You've already helped put the AEC on solid ground, and we urge you to continue your dedicated support by joining. The AEC Wildcatters Club enables you to place an automatic, recurring annual, quarterly or monthly credit card donation in four levels. Choose from: Bronze Level Sustaining Support ($5 per Month) Silver Level Sustaining Support ($10 per Month) Gold Level Sustaining Support ($25 per Month) Platinum Level Sustaining Support ($50 per Month) Any other amount you choose Membership in the Wildcatters Club does not replace corporate contributions—rather, it establishes a personal commitment to the industry that supports you and your family. Together with your support, the AEC can establish a firm long-term financial footing in our mission to promote the benefits of Oilheat and raise consumer awareness. Any amount helps, but the more you give, the more we can do for you, your job and the industry we share. Join the AEC Wildcatters Club today, and spread the word by asking your co-workers to get involved too, and asking your employer if the company would be willing to match your donation. http://www.americanenergycoalition.com/about/wildcatters-club/ RYDER NAMED A MOST VALUABLE EMPLOYER FOR MILITARY ® BY CIVILIANJOBS.COM Ryder System, Inc., a leader in commercial fleet management, dedicated transportation and supply chain solutions, announced that it has been named among the Most Valuable Employers for Military® by CivilianJobs.com, an online recruiting solution designed to connect America's military with civilian careers.
