JOB DESCRIPTION

COMPANY OVERVIEW
For over 20 years, the people of our client have been staying ahead of the curve in the fast-moving world of fuel and convenience retail. They were the first to use the power of data for better decisions. Then, as today, their proprietary analytics made data a smart, actionable tool. In an era when others focused on cutting costs, they changed the paradigm to building revenue, market share and profits.

Our client strategy and technology solutions empower fuel and convenience retailers around the globe to achieve greater VOI and success on their own terms. Their clients gain fuller visibility, truer insight and more effective control over what matters most. Beyond data, our client delivers actionable intelligence. Beyond expertise, our client delivers sound judgment.

Fuel and convenience retailing is more complex than ever. To simplify the path to success, our client advises focus on seven elements critical to superior fuel and convenience retail performance. The elements are location, facility, merchandising, price, operations, brand and market. Strategized and optimized, they drive greater value on investment, enabling strategic focus and tactical control. Best-of-practice fuel and convenience retailers know this. Our client helps fuel and convenience retailers stay ahead by staying in touch with emerging value opportunities. Their years of domain expertise tell them where to look, and their leadership in data analysis and software solutions help them to put potential profit into practice.
