Stoughton, Massachusetts-based NECASEMA has named Peter Brennan, a former attorney for the Massachusetts State Automobile Dealers Association, as its new executive director.

Brennan, who formerly worked for Massachusetts Sens. Michael Morrissey and Robert Hedlund, succeeds longtime NECSEMA director Jon Shaer, who recently accepted a position with ChargePoint.

Brennan takes the reins of the trade organization, which represents more than 7,500 convenience stores and service stations across New England, to lead advocacy on a host of issues facing the industry, including tax disparities, tobacco regulation, fuel price volatility, lottery and online gaming. NECSEMA member companies employ more than 120,000 people.

“I’m very excited to be joining NECSEMA at this exciting time in our ever-evolving industry,” Brennan said. “We learned during the pandemic that our convenience stores are essential small businesses that reliably provide food, fuel and other goods and services to their communities, even during the most challenging times. I look forward to advocating for our members on the issues most important to our industry while getting results in legislative arenas throughout New England.”

Before joining NECSEMA, Brennan was in-house counsel for the Massachusetts State Automobile Dealers Association and previously operated his own private law practice. He was a legislative aide for Morrissey and served as chief of staff and general counsel to Hedlund.

The New England Convenience Store and Energy Marketers Association represents and promotes the interests of the convenience store and transportation fuel industries across New England by providing its members with legislative and regulatory advocacy on key issues and valued services for all members, including resources, networking, training and educational programs.
