Past Network of Executive Women Board member Lucia Romanello Crater has been named chair-elect of the 2012 NACS Supplier Board. Romanello Crater will serve as chair of the convenience/petroleum industry association’s Supplier Board in 2013.

"I am humbled and honored to be the chair-elect for the NACS Supplier Board,” she said. "I have been involved with the board since 1999. At that time, there were three women on the board and one in a leadership role. Fast forward to 2012, the board will have four women, three of whom are in leadership positions. The board is starting to reflect the face of the consumer, who makes 80 percent of all buying decisions.”

Romanello Crater, vice president, retail sales for Cardtronics Inc., recently served as moderator for the "Go Team: Creating Positive Relationships with Retailers to Sell More Products” workshop at the 2011 NACS Trade Show in Chicago.

The Oct. 3 session highlighted ways suppliers could work with convenience retailers to feature products and generate more sales. She was joined by retailers who shared creative team marketing ideas using some of today’s latest viral platforms, plus old tricks that still work. Panelists were John Schaninger, vice president sales and marketing, Quick Chek Corp.; Trey Powell, director of national procurement US, Circle K; and John Zikias, vice president, marketing, Thorntons Inc.
