Store Manager of the Year winner revealed
This year's Store Manager of the Year winner has been announced today (9 December) after one of the most difficult judging processes in recent years.
You can find out the winner on ISellMobile. Judges were left with an incredibly difficult decision after a tough day of interviews and tests of the six finalists. Store managers from Carphone Warehouse, T-Mobile, Phones 4u, O2 and Tesco Mobile were all in contention for the award.
The judging day was split into three parts. The first part was a 20-minute interview between the judges and each finalist. The six contestants were then split into two teams of three and sent out to assess another retailer before delivering a 15-minute presentation on how it could best improve its trading. Finally, a second interview was held with each finalist in which the judging panel set them leftfield questions and quizzed them on their performance in the task.
The judges were Mobile’s former editor James Atkinson, HTC’s national training manager Lee Greenhaugh and Linzi Johnston, employment engagement manager at Skillsmart.
