DALLAS - Fleming today announced Rob Allen has joined the company as executive vice president and president, convenience distribution. In this new position, Allen leads Fleming's national piece-pick distribution network.
Allen was previously president and CEO of Core-Mark International Inc. Fleming's acquisition of Core-Mark was finalized June 18, 2002. With the addition of Fleming's other piece-pick distribution centers, the acquisition completes a national distribution footprint supplying consumer package goods to convenience-oriented retailers across the country.
"With Rob's strong leadership, paired with a talented management team and customer-focused associates, Core-Mark grew to become the predominant convenience store distribution company in Western North America," said Mark Hansen, Fleming chairman and CEO. "The acquisition of Core-Mark represents a significant development in Fleming's long-standing strategy to create a national, multi-tier supply chain that can efficiently deliver any consumer package good -- single items, cases, pallets or entire truckloads -- to any retail format. We are pleased that Rob will continue to lead the important convenience distribution part of Fleming's expanding operation."
"As part of Fleming, we now have the national coverage, scale and expanded resources of the industry's number one distributor of consumer package goods," said Allen. "I am excited about the benefits this provides our customers and the sales opportunities this creates for retailers, vendors and our company."
