Industry Pioneers Inducted to PCATS Hall of Fame
ALEXANDRIA, VA – PCATS is pleased to announce that three convenience and fuel retailing industry pioneers are being inducted into the PCATS Hall of Fame: Henry Armour, president and CEO of NACS; Jenny Bullard, CIO of Waycross, Georgia-based Flash Foods; and Loring Perez, president of Columbus, Georgia-based Chattahoochee Oil Company.
“Henry, Jenny and Loring were early champions of our mission, through driving the formation of PCATS and putting to work the standards we created,” said Gray Taylor, executive director of PCATS. “These retailers embraced the idea that retailers need to take control of their technology future, and work closely with suppliers to create efficient and capable enterprise systems.”
GACS members attended the NACS Government Relations Conference and Day on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. February 24-26. Over the course of three days, GACS members met with their elected members of Congress to share how policies affect their businesses. It was an excellent opportunity to meet the nation’s policymakers and influence decisions.
On January 28, members of the GACS Board of Directors visited the State Capitol to meet with their respective legislators and discussed industry issues.
