The Spinx Company has named Stan Storti its next president, the first from outside the Spinks family. Over the next few months Storti will transition from his role as executive vice president to overseeing operational management as head of the company, Spinx officials said at a press conference Wednesday night.
He succeeds Steve Spinks, the eldest son of company founder Stewart Spinks. Both family members will continue in leadership positions. Steve Spinks will serve as chief executive officer, overseeing the Spinx retail company and its Ace Energy fuel purchasing operation. Stewart Spinks was appointed chairman of the board, where he will focus on improving corporate governance and on the Spinks family’s real estate investments and developments, the company said.
Storti joined Spinx as chief financial officer in 2005, and has also served as chief marketing officer. He will transition to the role of president over the next several months, officials said.
The Spinx Company was founded in 1972 and operates 74 convenience retail stores in South Carolina and North Carolina.
