Women’s History Month: Female Industry Leaders

For Women’s History Month, we would like to highlight the Women in our industry that are breaking down barriers. Refuel is proud to work with companies supporting female leadership roles for women who have climbed their way up the hierarchy to achieve what few women have within a male-dominated industry. We are happy to share the success of three prominent women from brands on the shelves of our stores across the south.

Maggie Timoney is the current President and Chief Executive Officer of Heineken USA as of September 2018. Prior to this she was the CEO of Heineken Ireland. She successfully worked her way up the company, starting as a National Sales Planning Manager in the USA in 1998. She made her way around the globe holding many international roles throughout her 25+ years with the popular beer brand. If you are 21 and older, you can grab an ice-cold Heineken beer at your local Refuel store and support a female operated company.

Michele Buck, CEO of Hershey

Hershey is a popular household name run by Michele Buck. She had a career full of experience in the packaged goods industry before taking on this role, including 17 years at Kraft and various positions within the Frito-Lay division of PepsiCo. Throughout her time with the company, she served as CEO of different regions for Hershey until she settled into her current position, Chairman of the Board as well as President and CEO of Hershey.
