Lets welcome these new 2018 SCACS Board of Directors.
H.T. Hackney Co.
As a long time member of SCACS, I am very excited about contributing on a different level by joining the board. I came into this business over 20 years ago as the VP of Finance for a small grocery wholesaler. I was later moved into the position of VP of Operations (over shipping, receiving and IT for 3 warehouses), and eventually moved to the VP of Sales. With consolidation such a big part of our industry, that small grocery wholesaler was purchased by H.T. Hackney five years ago. As an employee of H.T. Hackney, I have been headquartered out of the Orangeburg, SC warehouse as their Sales Manager until about a year ago, when I accepted a role as the New Account Development Director for the East Region covering West Virginia, Virginia, North and South Carolina and Georgia. The parts of my job I have always enjoyed most are interacting with the people associated with this industry and problem solving.
In my spare time I enjoy golf, college sports (especially Gamecock football and baseball) and spending time with friends and family I value greatly.
Grew up in Annapolis, MD were I worked for an AB Wholesaler with ambitions to eventually work for Anheuser-Busch. When I had the opportunity, I moved to Denver, CO to start my career with Anheuser-Busch as a Convenience Store Trade Marketing Lead. I then moved to Montana for District Manager experience, now I’m based in Greenville as a Key Account Manager. I couldn’t be happier in South Carolina! I’ve had the unique opportunity to work & live in some beautiful parts of the country, so I’m having a blast discovering South Carolina.
I’ve been in the beer business for +12yrs, +6 with AB, and majority of the time focused on convenience stores. I understand the complexity of the business. I’m honored and excited to join such an organization as SCACS and I look forward to meeting the rest of the members.
Hobbies: Hike/Camp, Play/Coach Lacrosse, Boating, Fly Fishing, Woodworking & I have a Boxer named Gus

David Land II
Bountyland Quick Stop
I have been around the C-Store business my entire life. Growing up I aways loved riding to the two or three stores with my dad every Saturday and any other days he would take me. Around age 10 I started working a few hours on the weekends ringing and cutting beer. At age 15 I started working shifts here and there on weekends, holidays and during the summer. After graduating from Clemson University in 2009, I started working as a full time cashier at our original Bountyland Store. After about 18 months I moved to overseeing our beer store “The Wall of Beer”. From 2009 on, I kept urging front office management to move our stores to scanning products in and out. Once I finally convinced them this was the correct move, it became my project and is what I spend the majority of my time doing for the company. Golf, Hunting, and Clemson Athletics take up the majority of my other time.
Boyd McLeod, III
Calhoun Oil Company
Married to Melissa Moise McLeod since 1996. She is originally from Charleston SC. We met while attending The University of SC. Two children Margaret (16), and Sarah Elizabeth(12). I began with Calhoun Oil Co in 1995.
Calhoun Oil Co was originally started as Prickett and Dent Oil in 1918. In January of 1968 Alec B McLeod Jr. purchased and changed to Calhoun Oil Co. In June of 2006 I purchased Calhoun Oil Co. We have been with a number of different major oil companies over the years, but are currently with BP and Shell. In the past we were also lubricant jobbers and are currently in the fast food business with 2 Bojangles along with our existing 10 c-stores. Calhoun Oil has one employee that is about to start her 50th year and a manager that has been with us over 33 years.
My Hobbies include golf, ” have club will travel” is my motto and lots of University of SC athletic events. I am also a big fan of the Dave Matthews Band having seen him around 20 times in concert. Another tidbit is I had scoliosis as a child and broke a steal rod in my back. This required a second more dangerous surgery. I currently serve on the University of SC board of Visitors, I served 9 years on the SCPMA board, and also was President of the St. Matthews Rotary club at one point. I also take part in a Study Group for our industry put on by David Nelson.
