CST Brands and CrossAmerica Partners announce leadership reorganization

SAN ANTONIO and ALLENTOWN, PA (March 27, 2015)
- CST Brands, Inc. (NYSE:CST) ("CST Brands") and CrossAmerica Partners LP
(NYSE:CAPL) ("CrossAmerica") announced today that Joe Topper, the Chief
Executive Officer and President of CrossAmerica, has decided to retire as CEO
effective September 30, 2015. In order to ensure a smooth leadership
transition, Topper will resign as President of CrossAmerica effective
immediately and Jeremy Bergeron, who served as CST Brands' Senior Vice
President of Integration and Development Operations, has been named
CrossAmerica's President.

Topper will continue the day-to-day management of CrossAmerica until September
30th. Bergeron will report to Topper until Topper retires as CEO. Topper
will also continue to serve on the boards of both CrossAmerica and CST Brands
after he formally steps down as CEO.

"I look forward to working side-by-side with Jeremy and introducing him to our
great employees, as well as the Allentown, Pennsylvania community," said
Topper. "One thing is certain, he will definitely need warmer clothes."

"Without a doubt," said Bergeron, "Joe's shoes are big ones to fill, but my
family and I are thrilled with the prospect of joining the Allentown
community."

David Hrinak, CrossAmerica's current Executive Vice-President and COO, will
continue in his role and report directly to Bergeron. Hrinak brings decades
of experience in the industry, and a calm, steady leadership presence to the
organization.

"We want to thank Joe for his tremendous leadership and for graciously giving
us six months to make this a seamless transition," said Kim Lubel, Chairman,
CEO and President of CST Brands. "With this strong leadership succession
plan, we hope to continue to create value for our shareholders and unit
holders. We are excited for the next phase in the growth of our integrated
company."
