Loren R. Bailey started his career in the trucking industry in 1973 with Willis Shaw Express, Elm Springs, AR. After 6-years (1979) with Willis Shaw Loren received an opportunity to own his own trucking company (25 Trucks/30 Reefer Trailers) in Springdale, AR. The company primarily hauled Tyson Foods processed chicken outbound and produce back to Arkansas, Oklahoma and Missouri. In addition, Loren was a partner at Heritage Enterprises Inc; a truck brokerage (600 Truck Following) servicing the 48-states from 1980 to 1982.
In 1982, another opportunity came his way with an offer to work for J.B. Hunt Transport, Lowell, AR as a Fleet Manager. At the time, J.B. Hunt had 182 trucks and their mission was to grow quickly and they indeed grew. Loren worked for J.B. Hunt in the following positions, Fleet Manager, Fuel Coordinator, High Risk Cargo Manager, Director of Automotive Operations (Won Ford Motor Company's Carrier of the Year Award), Louisville Terminal Manager and lastly Director of Fuel Risk Management until 1992.
After 10-years with J.B. Hunt, Loren still had the passion to run his own business so he decided to make the leap of faith. The new company was incorporated as, Professional Energy Consulting Service Inc. DBA PECS, Inc. In 2008, the decision was made to change the name to Fuel Manager Services, Inc. which emphasized the company's primary service.
"My mission in 1992 was to operate a company that was very efficient, and honest that would be looked upon with the highest level of trust from the trucking industry, the fuel vendors, the hard working drivers and our customers. After 31 years it's truly an honor to get to do something you love to do daily"
