Benchmarking Council

Your Competitive Edge

The NPGA Benchmarking Council provides opportunities for propane marketers to create, learn, and compete more effectively by working with other marketers who share the same challenges. 

Even the most experienced marketers identify new ideas and better business practices in Benchmarking — but don’t take our word for it.  Listen to these testimonials from some of the marketers themselves:

Meet the Council

Art Burns, Eastern Propane

Doyle Fevig, Fevig Oil & Propane

Elizabeth McCormick, John Armentano

John Beezley, Texas Best Propane

Philip Marks, Nantucket Energy


Ask yourself the following questions to find out if you can benefit from engaging in benchmarking activities:

  • Do others in the propane business do anything better than I do?
  • Am I interested in new ideas to improve my business practices?

If your answer to any of these questions is a yes, chances are the Benchmarking Council can help you just as it has helped many other members.
