Megison comes to CSP, the No. 1 source for the convenience and retail petroleum industry, with 10 years of experience in the convenience store industry. She most recently served as associate publisher with Convenience Store News magazine in New York.

We're thrilled to bring someone with such great industry insight and experience to the CSP [image-nocss] team, said Jim Bursch, senior vice president and group publisher of CSP, Oak Brook, Ill. We're convinced Jennifer will have an immediate impact on our advertisers and help keep CSP on its winning streak with innovative ideas and promotions that benefit our clients and CSP.

Megison is widely experienced in marketing and advertising and has a proven track record of developing best-in-class communications teams and programs. Upon returning to the c-store business, I am inspired by the friendly atmosphere of the c-store marketplace and the innovative services and products the market is always generating, she said. I look forward to being active in my customers' business development.

Megison received her Masters of Business Management from Florida Institute of Technology and her Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from Louisiana State University. She has enjoyed a three-year industry sabbatical and relocated to her hometown of Pineville, La., where she recently played host to several relatives who needed a place to stay after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita made their way across the Gulf Coast. She is the proud parent of a basset hound, Flopsy, and an Australian Shepard, Sally.

Pursuing some of her passions, Megison has traveled and enjoyed scuba diving around the world and has become involved in community services locally such as no-kill animal shelters.
