Monro Inc., a provider of automotive undercar repair and tire services, has announced that Evan Naylor has been appointed to the position of chief operating officer, effective immediately.

He most recently served as the vice president of sales and operations at Murphy USA, a national gas station and convenience store chain, where he successfully led a multi-billion-dollar revenue business consisting of more than 3,400 employees. Prior to joining Murphy USA, he held a series of operational leadership roles of increasing responsibility at Target and Home Depot, including as a group vice president at Target, where he was responsible for more than $2.5 billion in retail business and 11,000 team members. Naylor developed his strong leadership skills during his time in the U.S. Army, where he achieved the rank of Major. He served in the reserves and in active duty for a combined period of 13 years, including 12 months in Iraq.
