OTR appoints first CEO

Convenience store chain OTR has appointed its first CEO, naming experienced retail executive Warren Wilmot to the role.

Wilmot was most recently chief executive of 7-Eleven in Australia for 13 years, and previously spent more than 10 years in various management roles with the Pizza Hut Group.

“It’s a privilege to join such a strong and innovative company with a proud South Australian history of investment and providing employment to the community,” Wilmot said.

“I look forward to building on this success with the broader OTR team and making life easier for customers by providing high-quality service, food offers and convenience, together with new levels of innovation and ways to engage with our brand.”

The appointment creates a new role for OTR, which is part of the South Australian-owned Peregrine Corporation.

“OTR has grown significantly over the past 20 years and the timing is right to appoint a leader and executive team dedicated specifically to OTR’s expanding operations,” Peregrine executive chairman Yasser Shahin said.

As executive chairman of Peregrine Corporation, Shahin will continue to focus on OTR’s growth and development program, together with Peregrine’s wholesale fuel and construction divisions.
