Troy, Michigan -- Western Global, a leading provider of portable tanks and dispensing equipment for the storage and handling of fuels, lubricants and other fluids, welcomes Mike Nelson as the national accounts manager for infrastructure as part of their Fuel Solutions Group of the Americas. Nelson previously served as Western Global's regional business development manager, and before that managed the Calgary Transtank branch, where he gained a strong understanding of Western Global's Fuel Solutions Group. His experience will aid in developing and maintaining relationships with key accounts in the infrastructure construction sector in the Americas.

"I'm excited to help our customers expand their business and profitability with a new approach to commercial fuel distribution," Nelson said. "I look forward to bringing focus to this growing market. Partners are always looking for innovative ways to increase safety, lower potential environmental impact and save costs on mega projects. Western Global offers solutions to these common concerns."

Nelson began with Transtank in 2012 as the general sales manager and was part of the transition during Western Global's acquisition of the company. He held the position of senior business development manager, prior to leaving Western Global in 2016. Nelson continued his experience at Allegion Canada, a global manufacturer of security and access control solutions, where he led a sales team and focused on customer satisfaction through multiple distribution channels.

"Mike brings a varied experience within the construction sector," said Bob Lennox, director of the Fuel Solutions Group of the Americas for Western Global. "His previous experience with Western Global and understanding of the Fuel Solutions Group make him a great resource for current and potential customers."

Nelson brings nearly 15 years of sales and sales leadership experience within the construction industry. His experience includes five years selling modular fuel storage and dispensing solutions. He will focus on introducing Western Global products to customers, along with providing product direction. His knowledge and background in the industry make him a valuable resource for customers and their project success.

Nelson's geographical focus is the U.S. and Canada, with support in Central America and South America.

Western Global's Fuel Solutions Group is a team of engineering, compliance, and project management professionals who specialize in creating custom fuel storage and distribution solutions. The team has extensive experience working with a diverse client base in many industries and environments - from fuel farms to complex mining operations.
