CAMP HILL, PA —The Pennsylvania Food Merchants Association welcomes Mike Gould, president of Core-Mark International’s Pennsylvania Division, to its Board of Directors.
Gould joined Core-Mark as division president in January 2021. In this role, he services convenience retail customers throughout the commonwealth.
“Our association and membership will benefit from Mike’s vast experience in food retail as he takes on this position with the PFMA Board of Directors,” said Alex Baloga, PFMA president and CEO. “We’re thankful for his time and the continued support of our sponsor, Core-Mark/Eby-Brown.”
Gould has extensive experience on both the retail and distribution side. He previously worked as market manager with 7-Eleven, overseeing 100 convenience stores in north-central New Jersey. More recently, he worked as the Director of Operations at C&S Wholesale Grocer’s 550,000-square-foot frozen grocery distribution center in Westfield, Massachusetts.
A West Point graduate, Gould served 26 years in the U.S. Army. He held a variety of leadership roles, both overseas and stateside, including in Iraq and Afghanistan.
PFMA is led by a 35-member Board of Directors that includes retail and associate members. This volunteer group shapes the association’s agenda.
The Pennsylvania Food Merchants Association, a statewide trade association, advocates the views of nearly 800 convenience stores, supermarkets, independent grocers, wholesalers and consumer product vendors. PFMA members operate more than 4,000 stores and employ more than 250,000 Pennsylvanians. For more information on PFMA, visit pfma.org.
