Pilot Company has named Gary Hoogeveen as president of its energy arm, Pilot Energy, according to a Monday announcement.

In his role, Hoogeveen oversees Pilot’s integrated fuel supply chain, including upstream infrastructure and asset management, business development, fuel procurement, logistics and transportation. He’ll also lead Pilot’s ongoing development of its electric and alternative energy solutions, which includes its aggressive EV charging plan.

“I’ve known Gary for a long time, and he is an experienced and talented leader who will bring a trusted voice and perspective to an important part of our business,” Pilot CEO Adam Wright said in the announcement. “Our energy team will continue to be foundational to our ability to reliably serve customers and navigate the alternative fuels transition.”

Hoogeveen has held several leadership positions with Pilot’s parent company, Berkshire Hathaway, over the past two decades. Most recently, he spent the past 10 years as president and CEO of Rocky Mountain Power, an electric utility firm under Berkshire Hathaway’s PacifiCorp brand. 

Prior to that, he spent four years as president of Kern River Gas Transmission Company, which operates an interstate natural gas pipeline through Wyoming, Utah, Nevada and California.

“As a leader in energy, Pilot understands we have a responsibility to help move the industry forward while continuing to optimize traditional fuel supply, which is core to our business,” Hoogeveen said in the announcement.

Pilot has brought on several new executives over the past year as it continues to set major goals amid its $1 billion New Horizons store remodel initiative and EV charging program. Besides Hoogeveen, those changes have included naming Wright as CEO, Joe Lillo as CFO, Jamie Landis as SVP of business planning and execution and Shannon Sturgil as SVP of alternative fuels.

Knoxville, Tennessee-based Pilot operates more than 870 travel centers across 44 states and six Canadian provinces. The company operates the third largest fuel tanker fleet in North America and supplies approximately 14 billion gallons of fuel per year.
