New Role Energizes Adam Gisch

Adam GischWith five years of experience at MaxYield Cooperative, Adam Gisch brings a unique skill set to his new role as an energy solutions specialist and LP gas delivery driver in MaxYield’s west region.

“I’m excited about this opportunity, because there’s a lot of room to grow,” said Gisch, who is based in Fostoria and will cover the area from Dickens to Hartley and Gillette Grove to the Iowa Great Lakes.

An Algona native, Gisch began his career with MaxYield at the co-op’s service station in West Bend. He became well versed in oils, the Cenex warranty, and other energy products and services during his two years there. As his career evolved, Gisch was based in Fostoria, where he drove a semi truck and hauled grain. He has also driven MaxYield’s refined fuel transport and has delivered products into the bulk plant, as well as MaxYield’s convenience stores and cardtrols.

Focusing on phenomenal service

In 2011, Gisch took classes through the Iowa Propane Gas Association to learn more about propane delivery. Gisch had the chance to put these new skills to use when Irv Maaland retired from MaxYield in late September.

“Adam will bring new energy and enthusiasm to the job,” said Chad Besch, MaxYield’s energy team leader. “He’s comfortable with the technology in our delivery trucks, including the automated computer systems, and he’s not afraid to talk to customers and prospects, which will help us grow MaxYield’s energy business.”

Gisch will also spend time in the country with Doug Shirk, one of MaxYield’s experienced energy solutions specialists, to learn more about the energy business. “I want MaxYield to be known for phenomenal service, and I hope to create a stronger energy presence for MaxYield in this area,” Gisch said.

Editor’s note: Wedding bells rang this June for Adam and his wife, Lyndsay, a kindergarten teacher at Okoboji schools. While the newlyweds live in Milford, Adam enjoys returning to Algona on Thursday nights to practice with the Gopher College rugby team. For 10 years, Adam has been a member of this team, which competes against rugby teams across northern Iowa, from Storm Lake to Dubuque.
