Wes Scott

Chief Operating Officer

Wes Scott started his convenience store career in 1998 with Town & Country Food Stores in San Angelo, TX. While at Town & Country, Wes held many positions in Accounting, Construction & Maintenance, and Marketing before an opportunity was established to run the company, which operated a fleet of 12 trucks. He completed two Bachelor’s degrees at Angelo State University. The first was a degree in Business Management in 2000, and the second was an accounting degree in 2005. Wes was able to sprinkle in various real estate, computer science, chemistry, and even range and wildlife management classes to try to find his niche. Living the life of a career student was enjoyable, but it eventually went away when he met his soon-to-be wife, Micha, and married in 2006. Their three kids, Rylan, Amryn, and Daygen, are now the focus of his life.

In 2007, Susser Holding purchased Town and Country, leading to an opportunity to start a new transportation company. Wes was given a chance to add a new platform to Susser Holdings, and GoPetro Transport was soon born. GoPetro remained under his control until 2013. When Wes stepped away from the retail transportation division in 2013, GoPetro had over 50 trucks and delivered 1/3 of all Susser Holdings gallons. GoPetro had become the number one carrier for the company in gallons hauled and comparable DOT safety ratings.

In 2013, Wes became the Vice President of Susser Energy Services and then Sunoco Energy Services, working to develop a new wholesale model that provides support for energy customers trying to grow their businesses. Sunoco Energy Services went on to operate its transportation division in five states and included sales of not only fuel but propane, chemicals, and other oil and lube products.

Wes credits continuous general education as one of the main reasons he is where he is today. He went on to start his MBA program at Texas A&M in 2016. An opportunity was developed for him to join the Arguindegui Oil team in 2017. With Wes’ help, Arguindegui Oil will strive to satisfy the energy needs of its customers.
