WESTLAKE, Texas — Core-Mark Holding Co., one of the largest marketers of fresh food and broad-line supply solutions to the convenience retail industry in North America, has hired Phil Miller as senior vice president of the east region.
Miller will report to COO Chris Hobson and will be responsible for the profit and loss (P&L) and customer experience in the region, and in executing the go-to-market strategy. He will also provide fresh perspectives to Core-Mark’s executive team.
Miller joins Core-Mark with more than 30 years of management experience, primarily in logistics, finance, retail and foodservice management. He has held leadership positions with UPS, TCBY Aramark and, most recently, C&S Wholesale Grocers. He joined C&S in 2009 and most recently served as vice president of the west region and Hawaii.
“We are excited about adding Phil Miller to our leadership team,” Hobson said. “His impactful track record and experience in both retail and wholesale supply chain organizations was exactly what we were looking for in our extensive search to fill this key position. While his industry experience impressed us, Phil’s leadership style and his ability to connect with his team and customers will give Core-Mark an incredible competitive advantage in our east region and within our senior executive team.”

The distributor services traditional convenience stores, grocers, drug stores, mass merchants, liquor and specialty stores, and other stores that carry convenience products.
In mid-May, Performance Food Group Co., Richmond, Va., entered into an agreement to acquire Core-Mark Holding for approximately $2.5 billion.
