A big day for the Fleischli family
Friday, Sep 6, 2019
* I received a press release yesterday announcing that the Illinois Petroleum Marketers Association had chosen Josh Sharp to replace its longtime executive vice president Bill Fleischli, who is retiring soon. I didn’t know that Fleischli was retiring, but he and his spouse had one heck of a day yesterday…
I’ve known Bill forever, so I called him this morning and he said he was offered a couple of tickets to the Cardinals game yesterday, but turned them down. It’s a good thing he did. He said he and his wife have been going to the drawings every Thursday for about two months. “I fell over,” he said, describing the experience as “surreal.”
He said the two hope to travel now that they’re both retired. “It’s been a great run and I’ll miss it,” Fleischli said about his more than 25 years at the IPMA.
