Rutter's adds family member to its leadership roster
The 11th generation of the Rutter's legacy has joined the family business.
Chris Hartman, the 29-year-old son of Rutter’s CEO Scott Hartman, has been named director of fuels and forecourt for the company.
Chris has been with Rutter’s for the past eight years and recently finished his master’s in finance with The George Washington University School of Business. He also has a bachelor’s degree in accounting and finance from St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia.
In his position, Chris will manage the procurement and retail of all fuel products throughout the company’s more than 70 stores. He will also oversee Rutter’s Fleet Card program -- a payment card dedicated to fuel savings and rebates -- as well as carwashes, air and vacuum, EV charging and signage at all of the company’s locations.
Rutter’s has been a family-run business since 1747, when Andrew Rutter established a farmstead.
“Having our 11th generation join the business on the corporate level is a major milestone,” Scott Hartmann said in a statement. “The combination of Chris’s experience working in the stores as he grew up, five years with Crossmark as a food broker, and his master’s level education will prove an asset to the organization.”
