SANFORD — The Pantry Inc. has named Terrance M. Marks to replace Peter Sodini as president and CEO.

Sodini, 68, took the helm of the company in 1996. He announced in April that he would retire at the end of his contract in September.

Triangle's largest publicly traded companies. It now has almost 1,700 stores in 11
states under several banners, including the Kangaroo gas station chain.

Marks, 49, previously served as executive vice president of Coca-Cola Enterprises Inc. and president of Coca-Cola Enterprises Inc. North America Group. His appointment is effective Sept. 25.
