Pilot Company said that Brad Jenkins, the president of PFJ Energy, along with Bill Cashmareck, PFJ Energy’s vice president of petroleum marketing and business development, have left the company.
“We can confirm that Brad Jenkins and Bill Cashmareck are no longer with Pilot Travel Centers LLC,” the company said in an emailed statement, adding, “Our energy division remains an important piece of our overall strategy.”
The company declined to comment further about the circumstances of their departure.
These moves are the latest changes in Pilot’s leadership team since Berkshire Hathaway took over as its majority owner in 2023. Among the changes at the company in the last year were:
- Naming Adam Wright and Joe Lillo as its new CEO and CFO, respectively, succeeding CEO Shameek Konar and CFO Kevin Wills, starting in May.
- Selecting Brad Anderson as its new chief operating officer as of August.
- Appointing Julius Cox as its chief people officer starting in October. The former holder of that title, Paul Shore, moved to another company.
- Promoting Jamie Landis to its senior vice president of business planning and execution, a newly created role, in December.
- Naming Shannon Sturgil as its new senior vice president of alternative fuels this January.
Jenkins had joined the company in June 2012 as senior vice president of supply and distribution, according to his LinkedIn page. He was promoted to president of PFJ in June of 2023.
Cashmareck, meanwhile, had joined the company in May 2019, according to his LinkedIn bio.
