David Mansfield has 10 years of experience in the fuel industry. He began his career with Indigo in government bids and sales. In this department he learned all facets of the industry from procurement, taxes, licenses, contracting, sales, and dispatch. After two years’ experience in government fuels he moved into commercial sales. His customer base consisted of regional petroleum companies, larger convenience store chains, and national trucking companies.
Following his five years as an account executive, David advanced to Director of Sales. He was responsible for overseeing the entire sales team and implementing a new go-to-market plan and operating system.
Looking to the future, David, along with John Mansfield, decided to examine alternative energy sources with a focus in solar energy. Over the last eighteen months David has researched prospects of the solar industry and begun to sell to a targeted customer base. In the first year he completed a 100kW system on a distribution center in Norcross, GA. Since then he has continued to focus on commercial and industrial companies.
As of November 2019, he has assumed the new role as President of Indigo. In this position he will manage both the fuel and solar sales forces.

For the six plus years that I’ve been with Indigo Energy my single greatest pride comes from the relationships I’ve built and maintained with customers and vendors. I’ve relentlessly practiced a customer-first mentality in everything I do. It is one of the few things I can control on a day-to-day basis and is the cornerstone for every successful relationship I’ve been a part of.
With over 30-years experience in the industry, I have created a nationwide network of business partners to handle any emergency from hurricanes to blizzards. I work closely with government as well as commercial accounts. I have extensive logistics capabilities and can negotiate the best rate for my customers, from generator fills to bulk storage.
First-class customer service and professionalism are my guiding principles when it comes to supporting my customers. Through constant contact and collaborative partnerships, I’m able to support my customers’ needs and develop creative solutions to their day-to-day problems. I thrive helping my customers navigate through emergency situations, and pride myself in the ability to work in an ever-changing face paced environment.
I have been embedded in the Energy Sector for 10 years and have developed an immense passion for the industry itself but more importantly the relationships I have built along the way. I believe in and value reliable customer service and aim to pass along the core values that support our industry to all customers.
I take great pride in creating and maintaining strong relationships with valued customers. My objective is to provide quick and efficient solutions to my customers’ problems, thus allowing them to focus more on their own business. With all the uncertainties in the world, it is my goal to help navigate my clients through challenging times on the road to success.
With many years in the energy industry, I have learned that integrity, trust, and hard work are the most key elements in business. I will always go the extra mile for customers. Having great supplier relationships and in-depth industry knowledge across the U.S. positions me to give my clients the strongest support and supply possible, no matter the circumstance. I do my best to always find a way and take care of my customers.
Understanding customer needs is the first step towards success. Alternative energy solutions can be intimidating and overwhelming to understand at first, but with Indigo’s professional advice and guidance you will feel you have made the right choice. The time to invest in alternative energy sources is NOW and we are here to help.
I want to understand my customers first. One size does not always fit all. The world of energy is changing, and I want to be your guide through it. I seek to assist my customers in thinking about their future by addressing current needs and creating reliable plans. Although there is more to it than just the numbers, I will work to find the best solution for every opportunity.

I collaborate with refiners and suppliers across the country to meet those goals for our customers and carriers. I enjoy building personal relationships throughout the industry that further Indigo Energy’s reputation of service into new markets and supply opportunities.
With 20 plus years in the industry, I have experience working across all functions from pipeline shipments, terminal inventory management, sales, pricing, contracts, billing, logistics, and motor fuel taxes.
