BP celebrates three great achievements at the 2016 AACS Gala Awards

16 August 2019
Jack Murphy-Cruise, Amanda Woollard and the BP Marsden Park store, New South Wales were among the winners of the prestigious Australasian Association of Convenience Stores Awards (AACS) ceremony at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre
Murphy-Cruise was presented with the AACS Peter Jowett Award at the climax of the annual Convenience & Impulse Convention & Expo. The Peter Jowett award was introduced in order to encourage professionals in the convenience industry to challenge conventional thinking on delivery and customer service. Murphy-Cruise’s presentation entitled “Unblurring the Convenience Channel” focussed on opportunities to generate profit and growth by adopting emerging technologies and engaging with “non-traditional” business partnerships. Having won this national accolade, he will progress to October 2016’s Insight Global Convenience Store Focus conference in Atlanta, Georgia, USA to take on finalists from all over the world.

Amanda Woollard secured the inaugural Women in Convenience – Woman of the Year Award at the AACS. Wollard was presented with the honour not only for her outstanding work in BP’s direct business but also for making a significant impact on the convenience market as whole. Wollard emerged as winner from an extremely tough field - she and all her fellow nominees were commended for steering their respective companies into different markets, creating new opportunities in the convenience sector and delivering clear and measurable positive impacts on the industry.


BP’s Marsden Park outlet in New South Wales was recognised for the second year running as the AACS’s Company Operated Store of the Year. The award is given in recognition outstanding facilities and excellent customer-service.
