#78. Hightowers Petroleum: On the Forefront of the Energy Transition

Stephen L. Hightower, President & CEO, Hightowers Petroleum Co.

Ohio-based Hightowers Petroleum Company, helmed by Steve Hightower, is at the forefront of the energy transition. From its beginnings as a wholesale fuel distribution business into an energy solutions enterprise, Steve talks about serving customers, keeping pace with technology and leading a global solutions organization.

With Special Guest:

Stephen L. Hightower, President & CEO, Hightowers Petroleum Co.

“The biggest challenge for us and electric vehicles is the evolution of technology. The technology is rapidly changing. As you actually put in the charging station today there’s going to be totally different options five years from now. Certain things are going be better, the battery storage will be better. Even how you charge is going to become different. We know that. So, we are always looking at how do you future-proof technology. How can we do this in a manner where it can grow as technology grows? That’s very important.”

Stephen “Steve” Hightower founded Hightowers Petroleum Co. in 1982, continuing a family legacy of entrepreneurism that began in 1957 with the establishment of the family’s cornerstone business.

From those humble beginnings and through persistence, drive and determination, Steve methodically began to grow his wholesale fuel distribution business into an energy solutions enterprise that today is recognized throughout North America for its customer service, integrity, creative fuel distribution model and expert handling of complex upstream and downstream issues.
