Aubrey Thornock

Category Manager Cigarettes, Tobacco, Kratom & CBD

Maverik, Inc.

I am from a little town outside of Nashville, TN. I have traveled many places and called a few cities home, and now home is Roy, UT. My wife Sierra and I have recently bought our second home and are settling down quite nicely with our 2 dogs Benelli and Chloe. I spend most of my free time outdoors, kayaking, fishing, snowboarding, and hiking. I have a hobby for each season we have here in Utah, which fits quite nicely with Maverik being Adventures First Stop.

I joined Maverik at the start of 2021 as an Associate Category Manager with the goal of learning the other side of the business. With 10 years on the account management side with various companies like, Juul Labs, Keurig Dr. Pepper, and Coca-Cola, I was ready to dive into the buying side of the business. Now as a category manager I oversee business planning, product assortment, pricing and promotions, as well as loyalty for age restricted items. With my time spent in the CPG industry with beverage and tobacco, focusing in both large format and convenience outlets, I am able to bring a wide view of the retail industry and how various factors impact the business and a Kaizen mindset as we grow at Maverik.
