DALLAS-Joseph M. DePinto was named president and CEO of 7-Eleven, effective Dec. 1, replacing Jim Keyes, who retired from the company earlier this month. DePinto will oversee all strategic, operational and financial workings of the company, and will report to Toshifumi Suzuki, chairman and CEO of Seven-Eleven Japan Co.

DePinto, 43, is returning to 7-Eleven from GameStop Corp., where he has been president since March. Prior to that, he was 7-Eleven’s vice president of operations. DePinto has also held positions at Thornton Quick Cafe & Market and PepsiCo.

7-Eleven operates and licenses about 29,000 convenience stores worldwide; about 5,800 of them are in North America. At the beginning of this month, Tokyo-based Seven-Eleven Japan Co., a former licensee of the chain, acquired it for $1.2 billion and took it private.

Meanwhile, the company’s US headquarters will anchor a $100-million mixed-use project in Downtown Dallas. In April, the corporation signed a 15-year lease, with a trio of five-year options, for about 300,000 sf in the 22-story One Arts Plaza, which broke ground earlier this year.

The convenience store retailer’s headquarters for more than two decades now fills about 400,000 sf of the 1.2-million-sf Cityplace Center at 2711 N. Haskell Ave. 7-Eleven sold the building last year to Prentiss Properties Trust of Dallas for $124 million.
