M&G Realty Inc., a real estate holding company which includes the acquisition and development of properties for Rutter’s convenience stores along with other real estate ventures, has named Chris Hartman as the new president. He succeeds Tim Rutter, who retired at the end of 2023.

This new role for Chris is in addition to his management responsibilities as vice president of fuels, advertising and development with the Rutter’s convenience-store chain.

  • Rutter’s is No. 82 on CSP’s 2023 Top 202 ranking of U.S. convenience-store chains by store count.

Rutter’s owns and operates 86 convenience stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland and West Virginia. M&G plans to continue its growth in Maryland, West Virginia, Delaware and Virginia, besides its core base of 81 stores in Pennsylvania. M&G also owns various sites with offices, banks and quick-service restaurants (QSRs) as tenants.

Since the founding of the Rutter’s family farm in 1747, Chris is the 11th generation to join the Rutter family business. He began his family business experience working in Rutter’s convenience stores at 13 years old. He returned to the business in 2018 after 5 years working for a national food brokerage company and earning his MBA from The George Washington University.  

In January 2023, Hartman was promoted to vice president of fuels, advertising and development, responsible for fuels, advertising, construction, real estate and finding leaders to help direct these areas.

“The addition of Chris to our senior management leadership team has been fantastic and a key to our innovation and energy that a 277-year-old company needs,” said Scott Hartman, his father and president and CEO of Rutter’s.
