Nominations are now open for the Michael Page Retail Executive Award for 2014. Now in its second year, the award calls for innovative retail professionals who have made an outstanding contribution to their business over the last six months.
The winner of the Michael Page, part of global recruitment firm PageGroup, award will take a coveted place on the next Westfield World Retail Study Tour departing in May 2014.
The two week tour will give one senior level retail professional the opportunity to witness firsthand the latest developments occurring in five key retail destinations around the globe – San Francisco, Seattle, Stockholm, London, and Barcelona.
“The Westfield World Retail Study Tour is a unique professional development experience capped at just 40 individuals each year, and we are delighted to partner with Westfield once again to offer this experience to a high performing retail professional, “ says Richard Wynn, regional director of Michael Page.
“Once again we will be looking for applicants who have demonstrated thought-leadership and innovations in their business and, similarly to the 2013 winner Warren Wilmot, CEO of 7-Eleven, are as passionate about the retail industry as we are,” he adds.
Commenting on his experience earlier this year as the inaugural Michael Page Retail Executive Award winner, Wilmot says the 2013 Westfield World Retail Study Tour was a fantastic experience and opportunity to meet some of the world’s best retailers and see the developments occurring in technology, merchandising techniques and innovations.
“The best part of the tour was spending time with a broad group of retailers and architects and people genuinely interested in retail. To put the two together – win the award and experience the Westfield World Retail Study Tour – was great,” Wilmot said.
