Allison Moran (MED ’91) named 2017 Retailer Executive of the Year

Allison Moran (MED ’91), CEO of the University of Georgia’s long-standing partner RaceTrac Petroleum Inc., has been selected as 2017 Retailer Executive of the Year by Convenience Store News.

The award recognizes a retailer executive who exemplifies leadership, business acumen, dedication to the industry and commitment to community service.

Allison joined her family’s 83-year business in 1994, working in the operations department. She is responsible for the creation and development of RaceTrac’s human resources department, which she oversaw for six years before being promoted to senior vice president in 2005. She assumed the role of chief executive officer from her father, Carl Bolch Jr., who now serves as chairman of the company.

In addition to her work at RaceTrac, Allison serves on the executive committee for the Family Business Network, is on the board of trustees for the Westminster Schools, the board of trustees for Rhodes College, and is a member of the board of directors for the Association for Convenience and Fuel Retailing (NACS).

RaceTrac Petroleum is one of the Southeast’s largest and most successful businesses. Headquartered in Cobb County, the company runs more than 700 stores in the region and is Georgia’s third largest privately held company. RaceTrac was also one of the top 20 chains in CSNews’ annual Top 100 list. Founded in 1934, RaceTrac Petroleum is now worth more than $7 billon and is one of America’s largest private companies.

The University of Georgia is a proud partner with RaceTrac. In February, Allison graciously served as a panelist during the University of Georgia’s Inaugural Women’s Leadership Forum, and UGA’s Real Estate Society hosted RaceTrac employees. Her company employs 55 UGA alumni, and six out of 18 interns participating in RaceTrac’s All Star Internship Program this summer are UGA students.

Allison was recognized as Woman of the Year in the 2014 CSNews Top Women in Convenience awards program, and was also recognized as the 2016 Woman Executive of the Year by Shelby Report.
