Chief executive officer of UNATION Inc., a Tampa-based technology company focused on event discovery and promotion, Moran, was lead independent director of the board of GNC Holdings Inc., according to a press release.

“Once again, we have an impressive group of alumni and parents joining the Villanova University Board of Trustees,” said the Rev. Peter M. Donohue, Villanova University president, in the release. “I look forward to working with Chris, Al, Bob, Diane and Siran during their tenure as trustees to ensure that Villanova continues to deliver on our Augustinian Catholic mission, while always looking toward the future and what is best for the Villanova community.”

He also served as chairman and chief executive officer of PetSmart Inc., joining the company in 1999 as president of North American stores, the release said of Moran who held executive leadership roles for Toys R Us Ltd, Canada, Sears de Mexico, and Galerias Preciados in Madrid, Spain.

In 2011 and 2012, he was named to Fortune Magazine’s list of the Top 50 People in Business, noted the release.

Moran is a member of the board of directors of The Fressnapf Group, as well as Hanesbrands, Inc., and the U.S. Track & Field Foundation.
