Work History:     Cal Gas Corporation/Propane Transport Inc.

Frederickson Tank Lines (FTL) (1988-1999).  Vice-President and General Manager of a common carrier fleet (44 transports) that specialized in gasoline, diesel and jet fuel deliveries.  We also opened and operated commercial repair facilities in West Sacramento, Reno and Las Vegas with the distinction of attaining “R Stamp” rating status.  I resigned in 1999 but agreed to keep the same titles and responsibilities under a consultant agreement for one (1) year.

Capital City Ventures Nextel/Sprint Franchise (2000-2007).  Owned and managed day to day operations of the two (2) largest Nextel Service Centers in the greater Sacrament Region.  Sprint purchased Nextel in 2006 and discontinued the residual program and adopted a replacement rather than repair program.  I sold both locations in 2007.
