Managing Director

Robert is the Managing Director of F.E.S TANKS and is very much hands on in the day to day running of the business.

Rob has been involved in the petroleum industry for 20 years which provided him with a strong platform to understanding our clients requirements.

Robert applied his trade with a Distributor of ExxonMobil for 15 years with his role primarily running the day to day operations of the petroleum and lubricant division.

As sales and operations manager of the ExxonMobil distributor model, Robert was instrumental in growing the company’s volume and increasing profits considerably during his tenure.

It was during this time Robert noticed a gap in the hydrocarbon storage tank market. Combined with mutual industry knowledge from Craig and Daryl, F.E.S.TANKS was formed.
