“The relationship the Galesi family has with my family is very, very longstanding,” Layton said. “A lot of oil companies that are not publicly traded have people from outside the business that provide capital or financial backing. Their business model is more short-term. They put the money in and they build it up and go to sell it and everybody goes and does something else.
“That’s not what the relationship is between our families. It goes back 30-some-odd years. Even though it’s different families, it’s a family business. That’s the nature of our relationship. And to me it’s something that does distinguish us not from everybody but from a lot of companies in this business in that there’s a long-term, stable relationship that’s seen some ups and downs. But it’s still standing. It’s still standing in a different form than it was, but it’s something that provides me with a great sense of comfort.” [Excerpt from Easy Reader, October 18, 2012 “Oil Trail: Crusades over crude oil span generations in Hermosa Beach” by Ed Pillola.]
