March 13, 2023 By    

Allan MacDonald will begin his new role as president, CEO and a director of Superior Plus Corp. on April 3.

MacDonald will replace Luc Desjardins, who will serve in an advisory role until July 31, according to the Toronto-based company. The board of directors acknowledged Desjardins’ contribution throughout his 12-year tenure.

In addition, Superior promoted Andy Peyton, president of Superior’s U.S. propane business, to the newly created position of COO of its North American propane distribution business.

“By appointing Andy Peyton to this newly created role, we wanted to leverage his strong business acumen and operational experience to improve and further strengthen Superior’s retail propane business in North America,” says David Smith, chair of the board.

The company says MacDonald’s experience covers a wide array of business and management roles. For more than 11 years, he held numerous strategic and operational roles at Canadian Tire Corp., the most recent being executive vice president and COO. He also brings experience in public and private companies.

MacDonald holds an MBA from Henley Management College in England and a Bachelor of Business Administration from Acadia University in Nova Scotia, Canada.

“I am honored and fortunate to have the opportunity to lead this company, and I am looking forward to working with an incredible group of talented executives and dedicated employees to continue the growth and evolution of Superior Plus Corp.,” MacDonald says in a company press release announcing fiscal results and other updates.

MacDonald’s appointment follows an extensive recruitment process overseen by a succession committee of the Superior board of directors using global leadership advisory firm Egon Zehnder.

“Allan made a strong impression on the board with his vision, intellect and capability to lead our North American-based organization,” Smith says.
