CLEARWATER – Kerry Nelson, gas specialist at Clearwater Gas, has been named the 2012 Donald L. Napier Natural Gas Operating Person of the Year by the Florida Natural Gas Association.
Nelson is an eight-year veteran of Clearwater Gas System and has been instrumental in the operation of Clearwater Gas System’s Natural Gas Vehicle filling station on Hercules Avenue. He is a key player in making sure the NGV station is fully operational and ready to fuel the public and private NGVs that frequent the station. He is also responsible for the maintenance of four gate stations and 40 regulator stations within the system’s service territory.
Nelson’s nomination highlights his willingness to quickly respond to requests for assistance from citizens, customers, fellow employees, and/or fellow gas industry associates. He is routinely known as the “subject matter expert” in the area of gas supply and distribution by his coworkers and industry peers.
“I have full confidence in Kerry,” said Brian Langille, gas operations manager. “He has a strong work ethic and goes above and beyond the call of duty to get the job done.”
