Our Team

Pioneer Propane LLC is more than a business, our employees are part of the community.   Our kids go to the same schools, we shop at the same stores and we wave when our cars pass one another on our way into town.   Meet some of the folks we are proud to call our associates:

Michael Dew - Owner / General Manager

My grandparents, parents, uncles, and family have owned, worked for, or been involved in the propane industry for over 60 years. That commitment to customer service, my interest in learning the science and physics of propane and a lengthy successful career in the industry led to the creation of Pioneer Propane.
