ALEXANDRIA, Va.—Conexxus will recognize Ed Collupy, retiree from W. Capra Consulting Group, for his service and dedication to the industry by inducting him into the Conexxus Technology Hall of Fame. The virtual ceremony and reception will be held on Thursday, April 29, from 5-7 p.m. Eastern time. All industry colleagues are warmly welcome to attend.
“I am forever grateful for the technical knowledge I gained through my early days of involvement with PCATS, and then for the leadership of the organization to bring about change and form Conexxus to become a broader educator, industry advocate and a place for us to exchange ideas with one another,” said Collupy on receiving the honor.
“During my tenure as Board of Advisors chair of Conexxus I saw dedication and progress in action thanks to the staff, committee chairs and certainly the members who took an active role in advancing the organization’s goals. Everyone’s efforts have been foundational to the success of Conexxus, and I continue to encourage people and companies to get involved and make a difference. In all, thanks to each of you for being competitors but colleagues, thought leaders but collaborators, and the hope to never be strangers but remain friends.”
Collupy celebrates an extensive career as an accomplished and respected information technology executive in multiformat retail operations. He spent almost two decades at The Pantry, where he was the vice president of retail and POS systems, before transitioning to W. Capra Consulting Group, where he has spent the past five years as an executive consultant.
“Ed was a personal mentor on many aspects of c-store operations, and I will always be grateful for his willingness to share his knowledge and time,” said Linda Toth, managing director of Conexxus. “The induction of Ed Collupy into the Conexxus Technology Hall of Fame is an overdue honor for a well-deserving colleague and friend of the industry. During his tenure on the Conexxus (PCATS) Board of Advisors, supplier membership grew as a direct result of Ed advocating for the benefits of standardizing electronic supply chain management.”
