The president and CEO of Independent Technologies, Inc., Daryl Ingalsbe, appointed Boyd H. McGathey as the new VP of business development for WESROC Remote Monitoring Systems.
McGathey most recently served as EVP and COO at Ferrellgas, the nation’s second largest retail propane marketer. While responsible for all retail propane operations, McGathey also headed Blue Rhino distribution and Ferrell North America, its all-encompassing propane business unit.
Prior to Ferrellgas, McGathey was the west division president at Inergy Propane. He served as partner and COO for Liberty Propane, the nation’s ninth largest propane company until it was acquired by Inergy Propane in 2011. McGathey led Liberty Propane’s 38 retail operations in 11 states and played a key role in business development, growing the company from a small start-up into the ninth largest propane company in the industry in less than six years’ time.
During a brief absence from the propane industry, McGathey worked with security giant ADT, a Tyco International LTD company. As general manager, McGathey was recognized and awarded several times for the successful turn-around of their Midwest operations.
