Matt Bogue

Secretary
Dutch Oil Company, Inc.

Matt Bogue is a District 1 Member of the PURE Board of Directors. He join the slate of Officers for the Co-op in 2017, taking on the role of Secretary upon the request of his fellow Board Members.

Matt’s day-to-day profession is serving as the Director of Operations for Dutch Oil Company, headquartered in Columbus, Mississippi. Founded in 1972, Dutch Oil markets a broad range of retail fuels in Central Mississippi and West Alabama. The company has grown from a small, local Shell jobber into a regional wholesaler that markets fuels under the Shell, Spirit, Sprint Mart, and other brands. Company-operated convenience stores are marketed with the Sprint Mart brand.

Matt says his biggest concern in today’s industry is positioning Dutch Oil Company to compete for years to come in an ever-changing competitive landscape that now includes big box, grocery, pharmacy, and dollar store competitors.

During his first year of membership and substantial involvement in the PURE Oil Jobbers Cooperative, Matt was nominated and selected to the PURE board in 2015. In addition to serving in a leadership capacity for the PURE Co-op, Matt also is a member of the Mississippi Petroleum Marketers – Convenience Store Association (MPM-CSA) and the Petroleum & Convenience Marketers of Alabama (P&CMA), while being a member national trade groups such as the Petroleum Marketers Association of America (PMAA) and the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS).

Matt says that marketing/branding is a passion of his and an area he would like to get involved in while serving the PURE Co-op.

“Our members are all facing similar competitive challenges and I am driven to help us find creative ways to compete and grow” he says.

Matt and his wife Amy live in Columbus and have two children, Bryson and Brooklyn. His interests outside of the office include spending time with his family traveling and enjoying sports and the outdoors. Matt received his Bachelor’s Degree from Birmingham-Southern College and an MBA from the University of Alabama.
