Richie O’Neil, general manager of our Waterbury location, has helped countless Hocon customers. It’s hard to imagine this place without him.
Richie joined us on July 11, 1988. He had worked for another propane company before taking a job as a serviceman at Hocon. He distinguished himself as a dedicated, engaging employee and moved up to service manager in Waterbury.
From there, he took on the role of general manager. Richie has a great rapport with customers and loves helping them.
“My favorite part of this job,” he said, “is helping customers solve some issues and also educating them on all the ways propane can benefit them.”
Richie’s hard work and leadership have made a big difference over the years. “When I started, there were two offices and about 30 employees,” he recalled. “We’ve grown to six offices and 200 employees, and it’s still family-owned!”
Richie has been here in good times and challenging ones. We’re honored he’s on our team!
