The final votes for the first face-off for this year's Store Manager of the Year award were cast at noon today.The judges then went into a huddle sifting through the comments and reading the answers to the management questions. They emerged some time back and gave us their votes.
Together with the judges votes and the number of popular votes cast, the results have now been declared.
Kelly Daniels, Vodafone Cluster Manager from Middlesbrough has emerged victorious with more than 60 per cent of the total votes. Well, 61.9 per cent to be precise.
Jyoti Kalra, the Oxford Street Branch Manager for Carphone Warehouse managed to get 38.2 per cent of the votes.
Kelly had maintained a sizeable margin throughout the face-off but in the past few days it had seemed that Jyoti would catch up with her. Even a day back, the number of votes were fluctuating wildly making it one of the most interesting face-offs ever since the competition began.
But #TeamKelly proved strong and her number of votes never slipped below the 56 per cent mark. We will be seeing Kelly next, in London when she will compete against the other finalists in a bid to be crowned Store Manager of the Year 2013.
Well done, Kelly!
The win is very well deserved. The iSellMobile team raise you a toast and we think you should too!
