Gene French’s Retirement Party!

Today was the end of an era.  Gene French has earned a much deserved retirement after 38 years with Holston Gases. In 1989 I had the misfortune of competing with Gene in this marketplace. If I walked into a Holston account and they told me Gene was their contact, I learned very quickly to thank them for their time – turn around and leave because  I didn’t have a chance. Gene personifies professionalism and class.  Everyone that came in contact with him was enriched by his kind demeanor.  In my 25 years with Gene I have NEVER had anyone make a negative comment about him – don’t know of anyone else I can say that about. Although Gene will not be physically present at Holston Gases his impact will be felt for decades as the next generation – who soaked in his wisdom –  takes over leadership of this company.  To many people Gene IS Holston Gases.  Thank you Gene -Robert Anders, Presidet/CEO

Gene French, the longest-serving employee in Holston Gases’ history, retired recently at age 81. If we had a Holston Gases Hall of Fame, Gene would be in it. If we had a Mt. Rushmore, Gene would be on it. He is, without question, one of the most valuable and influential people who have ever worked here. His tenure spans three generations of ownership, and he has been one the keys to the consistency and the personality of our sales and customer service. We would not be the company we are today without Gene French. We will be forever grateful for the honor and privilege of working side by side with “Geno.” He’s made every one of us better for our time with him.   -Bill Baxter, Chairman, Holston Gases
