Romero, president: “[American Tank] provides economical solutions and treats every customer like family.” arry J. Romero, President of American Tank Company Inc. possesses extreme resilience and determination. After suffering from three heart attacks, he still plays a vital role in the day-to-day operations of the company that he and his wife, Rochelle, started back in 1987. “We’ve weathered the storm since my heart attacks,” Romero explains. “We’re still going strong.” It’s going to take more than a few heart attacks to slow down Romero. Romero has spent 37 years in the oil industry and built up a reputation with several industry players in the region. “When we started, I didn’t really have any business skills; I had more people skills,” he admits. “We knew the industry pretty well and thought we could make a go of it by using what we did know.” When the company opened its doors, it had only one truck and two employees, including Romero. American Tank takes pride in being an Equal Opportunity Employer of approximately 50 personnel. Rochelle M. Romero has been a dedicated employee of American Tank for the past 23 years. Since Larry’s heart attacks in 2003, she has taken a more integral role in the family business. She currently resides as majority owner and CEO of this private, minority-owned Women’s Business Enterprise. Her dedication is admired company-wide and in the community.
