  • Post published:December 8, 2022

Christensen, Inc. a leader in fuels, lubricants, and propane distribution across the Pacific Northwest, is excited to announce the addition of two exceptional executives with over 50 years of combined experience in the petroleum industry.

Fergie Theriault has accepted the position of Vice President of Lubricants and Fleet Card. In this role, Fergie will leverage more than 25 years of expertise in the lubricants and fuel marketing businesses, holding key leadership positions in sales & marketing at Shell Oil Company.

“During my tenure at Shell, I had the distinct honor of getting to know the Christensen family, personally. Not only do they treat both employees and customers like family, but their continued desire to be an innovator in the fuel and lubricants distribution space made the decision to join the Christensen team an easy one. I look forward to sharing my background and expertise with an organization focused on making a difference.” – Theriault

Fergie is a graduate of Bishop’s University in Canada and holds an MBA from the Ivey Business School at the University of Western Ontario. Most recently, Fergie was the Vice President and General Manager of Marketing North America at Shell.

Tim Wolthuis is the new Senior Director of Christensen’s Commercial Eastern Region. Tim has served in various senior leadership roles for the past 25 years, including key leadership roles at ConocoPhillips and Mobil Oil. Prior to joining Christensen, Tim was the Vice President of Sales for West Direct Oil, located in Phoenix, Arizona.

“I am excited to be joining the Team! The culture Christensen has created was the primary reason I chose to join. I love the commitment and courage the company has consistently shown in investing in both its people and systems. All businesses want to achieve profit and continuous growth – but not all go about it the same way. I appreciate how Christensen sets its team members up for success.” – Wolthuis

Tim has a bachelor’s degree in economics from South Dakota State University, where he also played football. Go Jackrabbits!

“We are thrilled that two industry veterans have chosen Christensen as their new home. Fergie and Tim believe in our team’s purpose and are ready to roll up their sleeves to help bring our purpose to life. Both these leaders are well-respected in our industry, and I’m really looking forward to having them lead their teams and mentor future generations of Christensen leaders.” – Tony Christensen, President & CEO
