Leadership

Robert Stambolic is the driving force behind RS Fuels and several affiliated businesses. Robert became a Shell dealer in the early 1980’s with his purchase of the site at Belmont and Narragansett Ave. in Chicago, IL. For the next 20 years, Mr. Stambolic and his team have achieved steady growth in both the wholesale and retail motor fuel markets.

Highlights include:

- During the 1990’s Robert operated many CORO sites for Shell Oil.

- In 2001 Robert was involved in the Pilot Program for Shell where he operated 8 test sites in the program.

- In 2002 Robert purchased the Lake County territory in Indiana from Shell Oil. After the purchase of the Lake County territory Robert became a Shell wholesaler in Lake County, Indiana.

- In 2003 Robert became a Multi Site Operator in Illinois. Robert operated as many as 24 Shell MSO contacted sites in the Chicagoland area up until the project’s completion in 2010.

- Robert Stambolic, as Riteline Properties LLC, purchased 15 sites as part of the Shell Chicago Market Divestiture in May/June 2010.

- In 2010 RS Fuels acquired 15 new dealer locations from Shell Oil Products. Since that acquisition, RS Fuels has converted 3 more sites to the Shell brand and is in the process of purchasing 3 other current Shell Stations to add to the RS Fuels wholesale distribution dealer network.

Currently Robert is working on building his wholesaler network. By purchasing and choosing sites in a selective manner, and trying to open new sites on his own, Robert is keeping the integrity of the Shell Brand to his high standard. During Robert’s time as a Shell Dealer, MSO and Wholesaler, he has won many awards for CVP, image, wholesale gallons and even Shell Dealer of the Year in 1992 and 1993.
