Talks From the Top: Jim Forsyth, CEO, FKG Oil/MotoMart

Chain leader on private-label fuel, gaming and whether delivery and curbside pickup are here to stay

BELLEVILLE, Ill. — Jim Forsyth isn’t a fan of new-age online marketing for his convenience-store chain. “I know social media is big now, [but] I'm not a social media guy,” he said. “I'm too old.”

Forsyth—CEO of FKG Oil Inc., Belleville, Ill., operator of 80 MotoMart c-stores in six states—discussed the retail brand, gaming innovation, challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic, private-label innovation and much more in a new Talks From the Top conversation for CSP’s Outlook Leadership Community. Watch for similar video content exclusively in CSP's Convenience Retailing University Community, coming in February.
