Dean Durling Inducted Into NJBIZ Hall of Fame
WHITEHOUSE STATION, N.J. -- QuickChek Corp. CEO Dean Durling was inducted into the NJBIZ Hall of Fame on Dec. 9. The honor caps off a year in which the convenience store retailer was also named one of the Best Places to Work in New Jersey and New York.
"Our mission is to be a great place to work, a great place to shop and a great place to invest," said Durling. "Being inducted into the NJBIZ Hall of Fame is a great honor for the entire QuickChek family. I accept this on behalf of all of our team members. I really don't look at this as an individual achievement as it is the culmination of the hard work and dedication of more than 3,000 people who have grown a single store serving one neighborhood to serving more than 130 communities throughout two states."
Durling was recognized during NJBIZ magazine's Business of the Year event at The Palace in Somerset, N.J. Keith Campbell of Mannington Mills and Bernie Flynn of NJM Insurance Group were honored alongside Durling.
In 2012, Durling was inducted into the Convenience Store News Hall of Fame.
