The Society of Independent Gasoline Marketers of America (SIGMA) announces that Executive Vice President Kenneth A. Doyle has decided to leave SIGMA to pursue other opportunities. Among other things, Doyle will focus on further developing his family business, Doyle Association Consultants, initially founded 10 years ago by his wife, Laura.
SIGMA has formed a Transition Committee that will be charged with identifying Doyle’s successor and ensuring that SIGMA continues to serve all of the evolving needs of its members to the fullest. The Committee will report to SIGMA President Thomas Schmidt, chairman of U.S. Venture, Inc.
‘This is a significant transition for SIGMA and we plan to use it as an opportunity to position SIGMA for the future,” Schmidt said. ‘We are grateful to Ken for his many years of service and wish him well.”
‘It is difficult to leave a membership and staff that I have enjoyed working with so much for the past thirty-four years,” said Doyle. ‘I am very proud of SIGMA’s accomplishments during my tenure at SIGMA. It is now time for someone new to take over.”
SIGMA’s Transition Committee will operate under the umbrella of the Strategic Planning Committee, which is charged with positioning the association for the future. The Transition Committee is comprised of the SIGMA Executive Committee, SIGMA Counsel, and key SIGMA staff.
