As we charge full steam ahead into 2022, the Core Fuels family wants to continue to show our appreciation for our talented and dedicated team members. Despite the ever-changing nature of the fuel industry, our team remains unwavering in their commitment to providing the best possible service to our customers.
This month, Core Fuels shines the spotlight on Chad Duchesne. In his eight years with Core Fuels, Chad has worn many hats — with his passion for service being at the forefront of each of them. “Contributing to a variety of facets of the business gave me some valuable experience in just about every area,” Chad says. “This, in turn, instilled a greater appreciation for what Core Fuels does.” Before starting at Core, however, Chad built barns for a living. Needless to say, he doesn’t shy away from hard work!
For the last two years, Chad has delivered fuel to Core Fuels customers as a truck driver. Should the needs of the business change, however, he is always glad to fill in wherever needed. Outside of work, Chad spends as much time as possible outdoors and his preferred athletic pursuits — hiking and biking — allow him to see a different side of the community he grew up in. Chad is more than happy to point interested parties toward the area’s best hiking spots, though his favourite destination for hiking is the scenic Algonquin Park a few hours northeast of Stratford.
Chad played soccer growing up in Stratford and looks forward to giving back to the community as a coach — and getting back out on the pitch — when restrictions are lifted. In the meantime, Chad seizes every opportunity to be of service to the Stratford community in his position at Core Fuels. “Core is a very tight-knit family, and we treat all of our customers as though they are part of it. Big, small, new, or old: everyone gets the same opportunity to receive great service.”
All of us at Core Fuels are proud to have Chad as a member of the team and appreciate both his adaptability and customer-first mindset. Here’s to many more years, Chad!
