The overall strategy and responsibility for the running of ACS rests with the main Board. This comprises a balance of independents, multiples and affinity groups (symbol groups and other trading or representative groups), plus a member of ACS’ Premier Club who ensures the suppliers’ views are properly represented on the Board. The majority of the board are active working retailers, running anything from a single store to one of the major symbol groups or multiple convenience store chains.
