SPOTLIGHT WOODY WOODROFF ‘69 Albert "Woody" Woodroof, III, '69 NC Xi, Spectrum's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Office, joined Spectrum in 1969 and began to guide it toward the solid growth it has experienced over the last 35 years. Spectrum's commitment to building loyalty and brand value has made it the destination of choice and dominant operator in Columbus and Macon, Georgia, with additional facilities in the high growth cities of Birmingham, Montgomery and Mobile, Alabama. In June of 2006, Spectrum Holding Inc. sold its 90 stores to Alimentation Couche-Tard (through its U.S. subsidiary Circle K) in an asset sale. This marked the departure from the industry of Albert "Woody" Woodroof III, president and CEO of Spectrum and the 1995 NACS chairman. His experience provides an interesting case study on the transaction process from the seller's perspective. For more about Woody, visit our web site here.
