Parker’s Convenience Stores Appoints New VP Of Operations

Liz Howard

St. Simons Island, Georgia-based Parker’s Convenience Stores has appointed Liz Howard as its VP of operations. Howard will replace Chuck King in the position, who is retiring after more than 20 years of service to the company. 

“Liz has been a stellar employee and store manager, and she will serve us well in her new role,” said Patrick Parker, president. “She is always willing to do what is necessary to make Parker’s the best convenience store chain in Coastal Georgia, and we are proud to name her as our new VP of operations.” 

Howard is a homegrown hire, who came to the company as a cashier in 2004 working in Hinesville, Georgia. She was promoted to a manager role and went on to win “Manager of the Year” four times while serving as a store manager. In her new role, Howard will oversee operations of 11 Parker’s Convenience Stores in Glynn, Wayne, Liberty, McIntosh and Appling counties. 

Howard will replace King, who Parker said set a high bar in managing the day-to-day operations at all locations in Coastal and Southeast Georgia. 

“We will miss Chuck,” Parker said. “He has done an excellent job for this company, and he is leaving some big shoes to fill. We wish him well in his future endeavors.” 

Parker’s Convenience Stores operates 11 retail stores across southeastern Georgia, serving customers throughout the region. Under the leadership of Parker, the company also supports a wide range of local causes and has a strong connection to the community. The company also offers the Parker’s PumpPerks card, which saves customers up to 10 cents per gallon on gas every day.
