Last update:

Jose Victor Paterno, president and CEO of Philippine Seven Corp. dba 7-Eleven Convenience Store, has won the NACS Asian Convenience Retail Leader of the Year award. The award, endowed by PepsiCo, recognizes and honours the contribution of the most successful and influential convenience industry leader of 2019 in the Asian region.

The award was presented to an international audience of leading convenience retailers and suppliers at the NACS Convenience Summit Asia on March 7 in Shanghai, China.

Paterno is recognized for navigating Philippine Seven through the implementation of one of the most complicated supply chain networks in Asia. The company operates 13 warehouses nationwide and overcomes the country's island geography to deliver daily to 2,600 stores across an archipelago that comprises more than 7,000 islands.

A one-time technology entrepreneur, Paterno believes in the potential for technology to transform small-format retail. He is an engineer by education who fell into retailing when he joined the company at his father’s invitation as construction and maintenance manager in 1993.
