The addition of leadership for Breaux Petroleum comes as part of the company’s effort to bolster its rapid growth since opening its second facility in Lake Charles in 2017. Since that time, Breaux Petroleum has increased its geographical footprint as one of the leading providers of fuel and lubricants throughout South Louisiana and has further expanded its portfolio of services with a focus on industrial-related reliability.

“We are proud to expand our team of strategic leaders with both Roy and Azalea. Their additions are part of our continued effort to maintain a competitive advantage as a leading provider of fuel and lubricants,” said President Leon “Bud” Breaux, III. “With their leadership and impressive professional backgrounds, we’ll advance our focus on both the capabilities of Breaux Petroleum and our ability to provide customers with the quality products and service they have come to expect.”
