Ken has over 30 years of experience working in the downstream fuels business, including a successful 22-year career at Exxon Company, USA and ExxonMobil Corporation. His diverse experience encompasses fuels marketing, convenience store chain operations, brand management, new product ventures, legislative, regulatory, and media affairs, financial reporting, global credit card marketing, asset acquisitions and management, and capital raising. He has also built an unmatched network of important contacts and resources within the industry.

Following field retail marketing assignments in the late 1980’s in both Exxon-operated and dealer franchise businesses, he was appointed to various management positions with increasing levels of responsibility. Key roles included: Headquarters VP Financial Staff; Legislative, Regulatory, and Media Affairs Liaison during Operation Desert Storm which caused world-wide oil market disruptions in the early 1990’s; Global Manager of a credit card business in North America and AsiaPac.

With a broad base of industry knowledge, Ken had the opportunity to focus on his passion for retail/wholesale gas and convenience store businesses. He assumed Region Management positions in both dealer franchise and company-operated areas in significant Northeast US markets, managing the full P&L and redeveloping, co-branding and acquiring new properties. He achieved top honors by consistently growing fuel margins and volume as well as gross profit dollar contributions from convenience store operations.

In 2008, Ken formed Petroleum Equity Group (PEG), which works with fuel marketers, jobbers, terminal owners and retail gas station and convenience store chains, helping them to either grow their businesses through strategic acquisitions and real estate development opportunities, or sell their gas station assets or companies.  PEG offers comprehensive management and advisory services, including market insight, analytics, site valuations, and assisting with contract negotiations. The company also provides access to debt and equity providers to finance deals. PEG has been actively involved in transactions ranging from $3M to over $60M in total capitalization. In 2014 Mr. Shriber co-founded Petromerica, LLC with a Miami-based partner to pursue opportunistic oil and gas business ventures in Latin America.

Mr. Shriber's diverse fuels background and experience equips him with a unique skill set; strong analytical capabilities, precise site valuations, commercial/retail market development skills, a keen ability to assist with sourcing capital funds for acquisitions, along with strong leadership credentials.
