Welcome to the Convenience-Store Women (CSW) People Roundup, where women in the convenience-store industry are highlighted for career changes, promotions, retirements and more each month. Read on for news about retailers, suppliers, distributors and more.


Marathon Petroleum Corp. (MPC) has named Maryann T. Mannen, MPC president, to succeed Michael J. Hennigan as CEO of MPC and MPLX LP, a midstream company that owns and operates gathering, processing and fractionation assets, as well as crude oil and light product transportation and logistics infrastructure. She will also join the board of directors, the Findlay, Ohio-based company said.

Mannen, who joined MPC in 2021, has served as president since January of this year. Prior to joining MPC, Mannen was executive vice president and CFO of TechnipFMC, a global engineering services and energy technology company incorporated in the United Kingdom and headquartered in Paris and Houston.

As CEO Mannen said her priorities will “align with those that have made us the peer-leading energy investment we are today—an unwavering focus on safety, the environment and operational performance as we pursue commercial results that translate into greater shareholder value.”

Marathon Petroleum is an integrated, downstream energy company that operates the nation's largest refining system. It also offers Marathon- and ARCO-branded fuels at approximately 6,000 gas stations nationwide.

Rachel Allen, director of talent acquisition at 7-Eleven, was named an OnCon Top 50 Talent Acquisition Professional. The OnCon Awards are peer and community voted awards that are determined by community and organizational observation of work.  “Congratulations to our own Rachel Allen on being voted a Top 50 Talent Acquisition Professional in this year’s OnCon Icon Awards,” said John Romero, vice president of talent management and assessment for the Irving, Texas convenience-store retailer.

Ann Scott, senior director of electric vehicle charging and utilities at 7-Eleven, was recognized as one of the Top 10 Women in EV in the U.S. by EV Magazine. Scott was acknowledged for her mission to make EV charging convenient, while reducing 7-Eleven's carbon footprint.

Carr will report to the CCBSS board, which consists of 17 senior executives from 15 different U.S. Coca-Cola bottlers and the Coca-Cola North America Operating Unit (NAOU) leadership.

In her new role, Carr will oversee more than $70 billion in procurement spend.

“Caitlyn ascending to this position fills us with great optimism,” said Shortt. “Her extensive tenure across the rich landscape of the Coca-Cola ecosystem, coupled with a significant background in the beverage sector and collaborative efforts with our bottling partners, introduces a unique and strategic viewpoint to our operations.”

She began working for Coca-Cola in 2001 and has since held roles of increasing responsibility, including senior vice president of business services.

Carr holds a bachelor of science degree in industrial and systems engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology.
