The article presents information about Michael Irish, former director of trade relations of Philip Morris USA Inc. He was elected into the Convenience Store Industry Hall of Fame, founded 19 years ago by Convenience Store News, by a 40-member Blue Ribbon Panel of industry retailers. They recognized Irish for his years of dedication, customer service and the leadership he displayed during very contentious years for tobacco manufacturers and retailers selling tobacco products. Irish, along with retailer inductee Jim Keyes, the recently retired president and CEO of 7-Eleven Inc., were officially inducted into the Hall of Fame last month in Dallas, Texas.
