AACS names its new Board for 2023

The Australian Association of Convenience Stores (AACS) has announced its new Board for 2023, with a couple of new faces voted in at this week’s Annual General Meeting.

From a National Retailer perspective, Tim Rankin, National Fuels Manager at Chevron Australia, has been appointed to the Board.

Speaking to C&I, Rankin said he was delighted by the appointment and is looking forward to working alongside the AACS Board.

“I am excited about the opportunity to join such an experienced board and to help guide and advocate for the success of our industry and our members,” he said.

From a core retailer perspective, Haydn Tierney, Managing Director of Bowser Bean, has been appointed, joining Rob Anderson, Chris Andrianopoulos, Darren Park, and Steve Cardinale.

Tierney told C&I: “I am honoured and excited to be welcomed on the AACS board. I look forward to deepening my understanding of the national P&C industry and providing my perspective as an independent retailer and champion of convenience.”

AACS Retailer Members were asked to nominate who they wanted to see representing them on the Board and a shortlist of nominees was created, with members ultimately voting on Tierney and Rankin’s appointment.

Brett Barclay, Director, Convenience Measures Australia, was also re-elected to the Board.

Theo Foukkare, CEO, AACS, welcomed the new Board members and congratulated them on their appointment.

“I am looking forward to continuing working with the Board in 2023 and wanted to pass on a special congratulations to our newly elected Board members Tim Rankin from Chevron Australia and Haydn Tierney from Bowser Bean Café Vantage Fuels.
