Singla Joins ARG Railroad Sales Team
American Refining Group Inc. (ARG) announced lubricants industry veteran Anju Singla has joined its sales team as railroad sales specialist.
“Anju brings 8 years of lubricants sales experience and more than a decade on the research and development, technical side,” said ARG Railroad Business Manager David Tuttle, “so she is particularly prepared to help our customers with the expert solutions they need and have come to expect from ARG.”
Most recently, Singla served as sales representative for Soltex Inc. of Houston for its customers in the Midwest, East Coast and Canada. She also built significant sales and marketing experience with MidContinental Chemical in Kansas and International Petroleum Products & Additives Co. of California.
Singla began her 13-year career in research and development with Afton Chemical Corp. as an analytical chemist. Upon promotion to specialist, she began troubleshooting customer-specific challenges with gear oils, working closely with the sales team to understand the problem and communicate findings. She would ultimately achieve promotion to senior customer technical service representative at Afton.
ARG President and Chief Operating Officer Jeannine Schoenecker said, “We are excited to have Anju with us at ARG. Hers is a rare combination of sales, marketing and technical skills that will benefit ARG and our customers for years to come.
“David’s eventual retirement has been on our minds as the relationships he has cultivated within the railroad oils industry are virtually irreplaceable,” Schoenecker stated. “We are fortunate to have added Anju to our team at a time when David is ready to hand off his knowledge and experience. Preserving David’s progress and industry intelligence will be important to our customers and to maintaining our own longtime leadership in railroad engine oils.”
Singla holds a Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry from St. Louis University and an MBA from Averett University of Virginia.
ARG is a major purchaser of crude oil in the Appalachian Basin, striving to provide second-to-none service, consistent and quality products, and flexible collaboration toward the success of customers, suppliers and partners. For more information about ARG, visit www.amref.com.
