    Pinnacle Award goes to Armour; Miller appoints new senior director of c-stores.

    The Pinnacle Corp. has inducted former NACS Chairman Hank Armour as the inaugural member of the Pinnacle Hall of Fame.

    "Without Hank, we would not be the industry leader that we are today," said Pinnacle's president and CEO Bob Johnson. "Hank has provided essential emotional and intellectual capital to the company that enabled us to succeed in this industry. We are very pleased, in a small way, to acknowledge the contributions that he has made to Pinnacle and the entire industry."

    Armour, former president and CEO of West Star Corp., played an integral part in the conception, growth, and evolution of major Pinnacle products, according to Johnson. Providing both thought leadership and retail perspective, Armour contributed significantly to the development of Pinnacle's Oasis, an in-store manager workstation; Palm POS, an advanced point-of-sale system utilizing touch screen technology; PCTrain CBT, an interactive computer-based training program; and Price Book, a price-and-scan file-management system.

    Armour served an unprecedented two consecutive terms as NACS chairman from 2001 to 2003.
