GUS WALTER
Since joining Coffee Break Refreshments
in 2018, Gus Walter has been an integral
part in implementing new technology and
best practices he saw while working with
Avanti's clients as its midwest account
manager. Walter works with Coffee
Break's current and prospective clients to develop
custom food and beverage solutions that will fuel the
clients' associates and culture. Over five decades and
three generations, Coffee Break Refreshments has
grown from a small OCS operator to a full-line food and
beverage service company and coffee roaster. He credits
Coffee Break's growth over the years to having a great
team that will do whatever it takes to serve the greater
Cincinnati area's breakroom, restaurant and C-stores
with its locally roasted coffee and creative automated
retail solutions.

BRITTANY WESTERMAN
Brittany Westerman joined 365
Retail Markets in 2015 working on
cross-functional strategic projects.
By combining her strong academic
background (BSE and MBA from
the University of Michigan) with
her keen grasp of the convenience services
industry, Westerman has successfully welcomed
and accomplished increasingly challenging
responsibilities at 365. Today, in her well-deserved
role as the executive vice president of corporate
development and operations, she defines 365's
growth strategy and evaluates new opportunities
to expand. Westerman and her team have
collaborated with several suppliers to identify
alternate sources in order to keep 365's production
operations afloat during the past few years,
thereby helping operators throughout the industry
continue to support their clients. Through her direct
involvement in evaluating new opportunities for the
company's mergers and acquisitions and overseeing
post-transaction integration, Westerman has
been instrumental in fueling 365's growth as well
as that of the overall technology footprint in the
convenience services industry.
