Sheetz Inc. has named Emily Sheetz, Ryan Sheetz and Trevor Walter as executive vice presidents of their respective departments at the family-owned and -operated Mid-Atlantic convenience-store chain.

The company promoted Emily Sheetz, previously vice president of strategy and information technology, to executive vice president of strategy and information technology (IT); Ryan Sheetz, previously vice president of marketing and brand, to executive vice president of marketing and supply chain; and Trevor Walter, previously vice president of petroleum supply management, to executive vice president of petroleum supply management.

Emily Sheetz

As executive vice president of strategy and IT, Emily Sheetz will now be responsible for providing leadership and direction for 250 employees from Sheetz’s strategy, IT and innovation teams, some of whom work in Sheetz’s office space in Pittsburgh. Emily will also focus on formalizing the company’s strategic planning processes, forging new working relationships and synergies across the organization. She will also work to ensure that Sheetz remains innovative and that all decisions are made with customers in mind, the company said. 

Ryan Sheetz

As executive vice president of marketing and supply chain, Ryan Sheetz will now oversee the company’s total marketing results, as well as performance of Sheetz Distribution Services and Sheetz Brothers Kitchen. In addition to furthering the brand’s position, he will be accountable to develop the company’s annual marketing strategies and drive the implementation of go-to-market plans. He will also lead teams to maintain a strong and positive work.

Trevor Walter

Trevor Walter previously served as the vice president of petroleum supply management. In that role, he oversaw the acquisition of traditional and nontraditional petroleum offerings. He also helped steer Sheetz’s rapid growth of electric-vehicle (EV) chargers at its stores—the company surpassed 2 million EV charging sessions last year. 

In his new role as executive vice president of petroleum supply management, he will continue to drive Sheetz’s goal of ensuring the company is offering customers the highest-quality gasoline. He will also continue to lead and direct all aspects of the organization's supply chain policies, objectives and initiatives. He will lead a team of nearly 20 employees who will aim to move forward internal and external logistics and control processes and will oversee domestic sourcing of material and services and transportation.

“Sheetz would not be where it is today without the strong leadership of Emily, Ryan and Trevor,” said President and CEO Travis Sheetz. “Since joining Sheetz, they have all inspired their teams to consistently deliver on our organization’s mission of total customer focus. Each has remained committed to our company, their colleagues and our employees, and they will continue to play a vital part in our company’s efforts to grow.”
