IRVING, Texas — Speedway LLC veteran Glenn Plumby will retire at the end of first-quarter 2022. “It is with deep appreciation that I announce the retirement of Glenn Plumby, executive vice president and chief operating officer, after more than 40 years of dedicated service to Marathon, Speedway and immeasurable contributions to the integration with 7-Eleven,” said Chris Tanco, executive vice president and chief operating officer of 7-Eleven Inc., which acquired Speedway from Marathon Petroleum Corp. in May 2021.
Starting Jan. 1, Plumby will assume the role of executive advisor. In this position, he will continue to manage board relationships with the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
