Executive Director, BPAMA
Jack Allard was appointed BPAMA Executive Director in 2014 after a long and highly successful career in petroleum marketing. Jack has over 27 years of retail experience in the oil industry plus 9 years running his own business. Jack started working for Standard Oil of Ohio in 1980 after graduating from Purdue University with a Degree in Marketing & Labor Relations. He learned the retail business from the ground up starting as a territory supervisor for two bay service stations and c-stores in Cincinnati, OH.
A series of jobs followed expanding his skills with British Petroleum. Successful field and staff roles covered direct operations, purchasing land for new sites, and developing strategic plans for the business. Next were roles responsible for developing c-store network plans, completing multiple site acquisitions and divestments, and managing fuel pricing for all channels of trade. Several of these assignments included time in Europe. Jack was selected to manage the launch of a 25 site network of 4000 sq. ft. convenience stores in a new market. Jack moved to Chicago to manage the integration of the US channel of trade programs when BP and Amoco merged. He worked with the jobber associations, which became BPAMA, to align and integrate the programs. His last six years with BP were spent developing and implementing capital growth plans and managing global procurement spend for retail capital and maintenance.
Jack ran his own small business from 2006 and 2016. Jack helped found and is on the Board of a program management company.
Jack and his wife Pam currently live outside of Nashville, TN and have 3 adult children.
