Investing in the future of Ferrellgas (Overland Park, Kansas) begins with fostering knowledgeable and impassioned leaders, the company reports. The Ferrellgas Management Development Program is designed to do just that by empowering individuals who are interested in pursuing a career with a high-performing, technology-driven logistics company known for producing top-tier talent.

The Management Development Program, which was created in response to increased demand from employees seeking pathways to positions of leadership, provides participants with an introduction into the intricacies of the business.

Working alongside management teams, candidates gain a holistic understanding of the successful Ferrellgas Retail and Blue Rhino operations, shaping them into well-rounded and deeply knowledgeable leaders who will be prepared to thrive in any role across the company.

“As a company that prides itself on being a professional, tech-focused, and customer-centered leader in the logistics space, we have a responsibility to shape not only the course of our business, but also our industry,” said Figueroa. “The Management Development Program gives us the ability to train the brightest minds, and provides them with the tools they need to succeed at Ferrellgas, Blue Rhino, and beyond.”
