Ramp-Up Of Brand Program Leads To New Hire At VP Racing Fuels


VP Racing Fuels, Inc., has announced the appointment of industry veteran Ted Tritt as Regional Manager-Branded Wholesale Business Development to support its growing retail branding program.

“The increasing number of C-store operators expressing interest in our program required additional resources to meet the demand and we’re fortunate to be able to bring someone with Ted’s experience on board,” said Alan Cerwick, President of VP Racing Fuels. “With 30-plus years in the oil business, we anticipate he’ll be a real asset for us.” 



“Ted’s experience not only in the oil and C-store industries but in real estate development give him a unique perspective on the value VP’s program brings to petroleum distributors and C-store owners,” Cerwick said.

Tritt joins VP’s previously announced Regional Managers Bryan Noonen and Matt Schuster, each with responsibility for developing VP’s branding program.


Tritt began his career with a Gulf Oil distributor in 1979. After Gulf was purchased, he spent the next 30 years between two Arkansas-based oil jobbers, representing most of the major brands and unbranded oil companies. During that time, Tritt also owned and managed retail stores, as well as several other non-oil related family owned and operated businesses.

Additionally, Tritt’s extensive experience and relationships of trust in the Southeast markets enabled him to start a consulting business providing financial, operational and transactional advice to distributors and operators.
