Purchasing Sledd Co. in 1996, he and his business partner, Randy Emanuelson, have built it into today’s Team Sledd—a Top 25 U.S. convenience wholesaler. He credits his involvement with AWMA and its members for helping to increase his industry knowledge over the years.
Sincavich succeeds 2014 chairman Mark Davenport, Core-Mark Distributors Inc., Sanford, N.C. and will address the convention at the opening general session on Wednesday, Feb. 25. The AWMA Marketplace & Solutions Expo will be held at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel & Casino.
“I am very excited to lead AWMA for 2015,” said Sincavich. “Our agenda is packed with exciting and interesting changes, and I am thrilled to be part of the transformation that our association has as its agenda for the coming year.”
He pointed out that the convenience distribution industry is rapidly changing, keeping pace with economic realities and the influence of technology. He noted that increased governmental pressure is coming from state legislatures across the nation, and said AWMA is stepping up its governmental affairs program to track state legislative initiatives that affect distributors, as well as action in Washington
“In 2015, we will be deploying new tools, programs, resources, and strategies to address the changes and pressures that are occurring in our industry,” said Sincavich.
