Convenience Veteran Ryan McNutt Named New SIGMA CEO
FAIRFAX, Va. — SIGMA: America's Leading Fuel Marketers, the national association of fuel marketers and convenience store chain retailers, named Ryan McNutt as its new CEO. He previously served on SIGMA's legislative committee and board of directors.
"After a robust national selection process, in which over 75 highly qualified candidates were considered, the SIGMA executive search committee unanimously selected Ryan as the next chief executive of the association," stated Tom Gresham, president of SIGMA's board of directors.
Previously, McNutt spent 10 years with St. Louis-based Midwest Petroleum. As its vice president of operations, he was responsible for all aspects of store operations, marketing, merchandising, human resources and risk management. McNutt most recently served as a senior director in national retail sales for Anheuser-Busch in the convenience channel.
"It is a great honor to be leading SIGMA at a time of so much potential and growth for the industry," said McNutt. "I am looking forward to the opportunity to create long-term value for the association and its members in the years to come."
Starting April 20, McNutt will assume the role of CEO and work closely with SIGMA's board of directors, staff and members to ensure the association continues its role as a leading voice for the fuel marketing community and that its events, programs and services remain relevant and further advance the interests of the industry for the future.
"Ryan's reputation for engaging members and his dynamic leadership style are going to be a great asset for our association," said Gresham. "With SIGMA's outstanding staff that has been nothing short of exemplary during this time of transition, we are extremely excited for the future."
