Charles (Hal) Adams takes the helm, focuses on retail strategy and ‘people first’ culture.
MAPCO, an owner of nearly 350 convenience stores located throughout the Southeast U.S., has appointed Charles (Hal) Adams as CEO.
The announcement was made by Frederic Chaveyriat, who served as interim CEO during the search and remains executive vice president of MAPCO’s Board of Directors.
Adams joins MAPCO with nearly 30 years of extensive experience in convenience store operations, marketing, merchandising and strategy. He began his career as a night shift associate working his way up to his most recent position as president of retail operations at CST Brands, a Fortune 200 international C-store chain with over 2,000 stores and 13,000 people.
“We have been in a period of transition and growth focusing on establishing a new ‘people first’ culture that will enable MAPCO to be an industry innovator and a brand our guests can trust,” said Chaveyriat. “With Hal, we get not only an exceptional professional with a proven industry track record, but also a servant-leader with a committed vision who knows how to inspire team members and deliver a best-in-class customer experience.”
Adams, who will report to Chaveyriat, begins his tenure at MAPCO on Feb. 5, 2018.
“This is an incredibly exciting time for MAPCO’s growth, and I look forward to joining the team,” said Adams, CEO of MAPCO. “MAPCO is investing in its people and its stores, and I am a passionate believer that a culture of empowerment will drive strong business results.”
