CHICAGO — Former Casey’s General Stores CEO Terry Handley has joined Vroom Delivery as an adviser to the board of directors. Over his nearly four decades with Casey’s, Handley lead the company's expanding foodservice operations and its early adoption of e-commerce.
“While a number of third-party options are available in certain metro areas, Vroom Delivery is the only platform I have seen that is truly focused on this industry,” Handley said. “Vroom’s platform allows stores to cost-effectively deliver across all product categories—not just foodservice—including regulated products such as beer. It also allows stores to offer delivery and e-commerce to areas of their network that may be underserved by other services. These capabilities will be crucial for c-stores to compete with emerging e-commerce threats such as Amazon and GoPuff.”
“We could not be more pleased to welcome Terry to the Vroom Delivery family,” said Vroom CEO John Nelson. “Terry brings not only decades of industry knowledge to the team but also an understanding of the importance of innovation and change in order to stay competitive.”
Terry joins Neil Stern, a senior partner with Chicago-based retail consulting firm McMillan Doolittle, on the Vroom advisory board. “I have known Terry for years, and we worked together while he was at Casey’s. He is a true visionary when it comes to seeing the next big trends. I am excited to be working with him again at Vroom Delivery,” Stern said.
Vroom Delivery is an e-commerce engine designed specifically for the convenience-store industry, providing stores with the tools necessary to manage an e-commerce operation. Founded in 2016, the company partners with local and regional chains and has clients that operate in 13 states.
