BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Children’s Hunger Project has elected Summit Shah to the position of Treasurer of the charity.
A well-known entrepreneur and executive, Shah is Vice President of Southeast Petro, one of the largest fuel suppliers in the Southeast region.
Shah has been in the petroleum business since its inception when his father, Mike Shah opened his first gas station in 1980.
As a young boy, Summit would help his father fill customer’s tanks with fuel, wash their windshields and ensure that they were treated with the utmost of care.
After attending college at Tulane University to obtain a Bachelor’s Degree in Management, his philosophy of providing outstanding customer service did not change.
He dove right into the management of the day to day operations for Southeast Petro, the parent company that evolved from a single gas station, to a fuel distributorship that both operates and supplies over 400 gas stations throughout the Southeast.
Southeast Petro and the Shah’s are heavily involved in community outreach as they believe it is the community that has allowed them the success that they have achieved.
“The Children’s Hunger Project is near to our hearts here at Southeast Petro,” Summit said.
“I am honored to be able to have an integral part in such a well-known organization that does so much for the children of Brevard County. Keeping our children safe and well-nourished is paramount to the success of our future generation of decision makers.”
The Children’s Hunger Project is a Brevard County 501 (c) (3) charity that provides packages of food for hungry children so that they can get basic nourishment each weekend.
The charity began at Riviera Elementary School in Palm Bay and has since expanded to thirty-six elementary schools in Palm Bay, Melbourne, Rockledge, Cocoa, Satellite Beach, Indian Harbour Beach, Titusville and Mims. Further expansion is planned in the future as funds permit.
