Biography

A second-generation Tulsan, Chester “Chet” Cadieux III is Chairman and CEO of QuikTrip Corporation, a regional gasoline and convenience store operation founded in 1958 by his father, Chester Cadieux II. With annual sales of more than $10 billion, QuikTrip operates 938 stores across 16 states through the efforts of its 23,000 remarkable employees. QuikTrip Corporation is recognized by Forbes as the 34th-largest, privately-held company in the United States.

Cadieux attended Jenks Public Schools from kindergarten through the 12th grade before graduating with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management from The University of Tulsa in 1989. He began his full-time career with QuikTrip on the graveyard shift that same year and rose through the ranks to Store Manager, Real Estate Manager, and Vice President of Sales before being named President and CEO in 2002 and Chairman and CEO in 2006. He recently celebrated his 33 years of service with QuikTrip.

Outside of his responsibilities with QuikTrip, Cadieux has served as Chairman of the Tulsa River Parks, The Tulsa Metro Chamber of Commerce, and the Tulsa Area United Way, as well as stints on the boards of the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS), The University of Tulsa, and the Tulsa Community Foundation.  He currently serves on the Board of Directors for Sheetz, Inc. of Altoona, Pennsylvania and Bank of Oklahoma N.A. and the George Kaiser Family Foundation, both of Tulsa.

Cadieux is married, has two children, and enjoys auto racing and snow skiing.
