The Pantry Inc. named Edwin Holman its new chairman of the board today. He will replace outgoing president, CEO and chairman Peter Sodini when Sodini leaves the company at the end of the month.
Holman has been a director for the Cary-based convenience store chain since October 2005. From December 2004 until his recent retirement, Holman was the chairman and CEO of Macy's Central, a division of the department store giant with 217 stores throughout the midwest and southeastern United States.
Holman's appointment follows the announcement that former Coca-Cola Enterprises executive Terrance Marks will take over the president and CEO role when Sodini retires from The Pantry.
