Besides Price, How Does Guttman Energy Add Value to Customer Relationships?

By: Mark Harper / March 9, 2017

Several years ago when Guttman Energy undertook the effort of updating our website, we spent a considerable amount of time evaluating what makes our company different from our competitors.  We wanted our website to clearly reflect those differences so that our customers and prospects could see that there is more to a relationship with a fuel distributor than just price.  We identified three areas that we believe make us different: our Experience, our Know-how, and our Market Intelligence.

We demonstrate these differences to our customers through our everyday interactions. We also demonstrate them through customer events like our Energy Forum.  The objective of holding these Forums is to make information and access to nationally recognized experts easily available to our customers.   These events are held not as commercials for our company, but as information gathering events intended to educate our customers and prospects. 

This year our lineup of speakers is the strongest we have assembled.  They are:

  • Stuart Hoffman – Chief Economist – PNC Financial Services Group
  • Michael Krancer – Senior Counsel and Chairman of the Energy Industry Team at Blank Rome LLP; Principal of Silent Majority Strategies (SMS)
  • Keith Naughton – Principal & Co-Founder of Silent Majority Strategies
  • Jeff Quigley – Director, Energy Markets – Stratas Advisors
  • Alex Epstein – President and Founder of the Center for Industrial Progress and author of The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels

These speakers will address a wide range of topics that are listed in the invitation below.  I would personally like to invite you, as a reader of our daily blog, to join us for this event and see what makes Guttman Energy different.  Just click the REGISTER NOW button below to let us know you will be attending.  If there are others you know that you believe would benefit from this event, by all means feel free to extend an invitation.  There is no cost to attend.

We look forward to hosting you and to sharing our Experience, our Know-how, and our Market Intelligence with you.


2017 Energy Forum

2017 promises to be a VERY interesting year in the energy
industry, with no shortage of compelling questions to be answered:

  • What are the economic and political issues that will impact fuels markets over the coming year?
  • A pro-energy Trump Administration…can it make a meaningful impact?
  • What’s in store for prices of oil, refined products, and natural gas in 2017?
  • OPEC seems resolute with its commitment to production cuts…can it maintain momentum? What happens if it can’t?
  • The energy debate, as framed by climate change advocates and the media, is typically one-sided…how can an alternative perspective help tell the full story?
  • What are the big picture benefits (and costs) of fossil fuels?

Our 2017 Energy Forum features an outstanding lineup of experts who will provide answers to these questions and share insights that can impact your business.
