NEW YORK -- CST Brands Inc., led by chairman, president and CEO Kim Bowers and members of the San Antonio, Texas-based company's leadership team, visited the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and rang The Opening Bell on Dec. 3.

CST Brands, one of the largest independent retailers in North America, listed its initial public offering on the NYSE earlier this year under the ticker symbol, "CST."
