Drawing on his experience providing retail services around the world, Roy has been able to combine his years of operations and management expertise with a team of retail, technology and operations professionals to become the industry leader in providing retail site operations, Strasburger said in a statement.
"Roy’s contribution to the NACS community has been considerable," said Bill Douglass, CEO of Sherman, Texas-based Douglass Distributing. "As Roy’s co-vice-chair of the NACS Executive Committee, I experienced firsthand Roy’s intelligence and insights. He was always willing to share his knowledge and experience about convenience retailing and international trends, which helped enhance everyone’s performance. Roy is committed to the industry and his clients."
Strasburger has built on its heritage in convenience and small-format retailing to lead innovation in all aspects of retail management for single, multiple and chain store operations. Strasburger’s Kiosk Korner provides a professional retail offer for office buildings, apartment complex or college dorms.
"The growth of Strasburger retail business operations closely mirrors the growth of NACS and the industry as a whole," commented Jeff Lenard, vice president of strategic industry initiatives for NACS, the Association for Convenience & Fuel Retailing.
"The Strasburgers were early entrants into the global marketplace and helped grow the industry to a point unrecognizable from when they started," he added. "And they also have given back to NACS: a Strasburger has served on the NACS Board of Directors in four different decades (Tommy 1975-81 and Roy 1998-2004), and Roy has shared innovations in his retail operations in the acclaimed NACS Ideas 2 Go video series, as well as served as moderator and speaker at countless NACS events."
