Podcast: Jim Rose of Pilot Co. in ‘the Hot Seat’

The travel-center chain’s vice president of operations talks about meeting the new challenges of convenience retailing

This month, CSP brought five convenience-store executives to the general session stage during our annual Outlook Leadership Conference in a session we titled C-Suite in the Hot Seat. During the session, CSP’s Mitch Morrison, vice president of retailer relations, and Editor-in-Chief Steve Holtz got to pepper each executive with a series of questions about themselves and what’s new in their businesses.

“At Your Convenience” will present each retailer’s time in the hot seat in a series of podcasts, beginning today with Jim Rose, the vice president of operations for the Pilot Co., Knoxville, Tennessee.

“At Your Convenience” brings industry experts and analysts together with CSP editors to discuss the latest in c-store news and trends. From mergers and acquisitions to foodservice and technology, the podcast delivers the story straight to listeners in short-format episodes, perfect for the morning commute or a quick break at the office.
