 QuickChek Corp. has promoted two key members of its management team and opened its first new store of 2020.

Don Leech, who has been with the Whitehouse Station, New Jersey-based fresh convenience market chain for 35 years, has been promoted to VP of marketing and development. He served as VP of real estate and development for the past three years and was director of operations for 14 years, leading multiple store districts. Leech began his career at the company’s Middletown store in 1985, moving up to assistant store leader and district leader. He holds a bachelor’s degree in management from East Stroudsburg University.

 Rich Lamont has been promoted to director of real estate, leading QuickChek’s real estate team. He joined QuickChek in 2006 as a real estate development manager and was promoted to senior real estate development manager in 2016. He has a bachelor’s degree in landscape architecture and a master’s degree in urban planning, both from Rutgers University, and holds a landscape architect’s license and a professional planner’s license from the state of New Jersey.

For its first store opening of the year, QuickChek also celebrated 50 years of serving Monmouth County when it opened a new 5,496-s.f. store near the intersection of Routes 35 and 36 across from the Monmouth Mall in Eatontown on Jan. 21.

  “We continue to identify opportunities where we can make a difference in people’s everyday lives and make your life easier with the fresh products and services you want, whether it’s a freshly-prepared sub, our guaranteed fresh-brewed coffee, or fuel, and get you on your way fast,” said Dean Durling, CEO of the company, whose award-winning fresh food and beverage program is highlighted by its fresh-brewed coffee.

It is the first of several new QuickChek stores scheduled to open in New Jersey and Long Island this year, continuing the family-owned company’s steady growth. Each new store creates 40-45 new local jobs, including eight management positions.
