Having worked in the gas industry for over 40 years, Wayne has done just about every job imaginable.

Starting out as an apprentice gas fitter he worked his way up to service technician, service supervisor, technical trainer and finally the Safety Program Manager for one of the largest propane and oil marketers in the New England area.
