MAPCO, a convenience store chain that operates 348 locations throughout the Southeast U.S., has appointed Charles (Hal) Adams as CEO, effective Feb. 5. He will succeed Frederic Chaveyriat, who had served as interim CEO and now remains as EVP of the MAPCO Board of Directors.
Adams has nearly 30 years’ experience in convenience store retail. Prior to joining MAPCO, he served as President of Retail Operations at CST Brands, an international C-store chain.
“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 in a statement. “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.”
