AmeriGas Propane Inc., general partner of AmeriGas Partners, L.P. (NYSE: APU), announced that Jerry E. Sheridan will succeed Eugene V. N. Bissell as president and chief executive officer effective with Mr. Bissell’s retirement in 2012.  Mr. Sheridan, 46, joined AmeriGas in 2005 as vice president and chief financial officer and was elected to the position of vice president and chief operating officer in May 2011.  Prior to joining AmeriGas, Sheridan served as president and chief executive officer of Potters Industries, Inc., a global manufacturer of engineered glass materials and a wholly owned subsidiary of PQ Corporation.

The Company also announced that R.

Eugene V. N. Bissell, chief executive officer of AmeriGas, said, “We are pleased to be announcing the appointments of two very talented executives to these key leadership positions.  We are confident that Jerry and Paul will provide the leadership necessary to guide the company through the Heritage acquisition, which we expect to close by March 31, 2012, and to ensure a smooth transition upon my retirement in 2012.”

AmeriGas Partners is the nation’s largest retail propane marketer, serving approximately 1.3 million customers in all 50 states from nearly 1,200 locations.  UGI Corporation (NYSE:UGI), through subsidiaries, owns 44% of the Partnership and the public owns the remaining 56%.

    Maybe you can help. I have been trying for almost a year now to view my account balance online. I have 14 unanswered emails to customer service. Can you help?

    I hope that Jerry E. Sheridan can stop the screwing of amerigas’s smaller customers. AT $5.04 A GALLON, YOUR COMPANY IS THE BIGGEST RIPOFF IN VIRGINIA. If you can read, look at what the BBB has to say about your company and ripoff report. Good by ameriass. You should be disallowed from using AMERI in your name, b/c you have no sense of the word.
