President and Chief Executive Officer

If we measure a company by how it responds to challenge and controversy, then I must say that Couche-Tard is succeeding in ways we never imagined. Our store employees have become frontline heroes, we are part of the solution in the communities where we work and live, and, with our customary financial discipline, we are positioned to continue our growth journey.
