We are honored to present this month’s episode of Leadership Reimagined, “A Latino CEO: Impacting Middle America” with Darren Rebelez, President, Chief Executive Officer, and Director of Casey’s.

Join us in this month’s game-changing conversation with Darren Rebelez, a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, former Army Ranger, Gulf War veteran, and now one of less than 5% Latinx CEO’s leading a Fortune 500 company! Casey’s is a chain of convenience stores operating in the Midwestern and Southern states, holding the position as the third largest convenience retailer and fifth largest pizza chain in the U.S., where their brand platform is Casey’s “Here For Good.”

“We stand for something in our communities. We stand for good quality products and service. With a very rural footprint, in many cases, our store is the grocery store, it’s the gas station, it’s the pizza place, it’s the coffee shop, it is important in the community, and we are really serving a need. We are here for good, and we are here for the long term.”

Prior to Casey’s, he served as the President of IHOP Restaurants, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at 7-Eleven and prior to 7-Eleven, held numerous leadership roles at ExxonMobil and Thornton Oil Corporation.
