Westfield has agreed to support this year’s National Retail Australia (NRA) Young Retailer of the Year Award.
The winner will be offered a spot on the Westfield World Retail Study Tour. The award provides a national platform to recognise and reward excellence amongst young retailers under the age of 25, and promotes retailing as a career of choice for young people.
Jack Hanrahan, Westfield's retailer relations general manager, said Westfield is pleased to announce their support of this year’s Young Retailer of the Year Award.
“By providing a place on the Westfield World Retail Study Tour as the winning prize, we hope to encourage retailers to give their worthy staff this unique opportunity by nominating them for the 2012 Young Retailer of the Year Award,” he said.
The aim of the tour is to educate, motivate and inspire retailers by exposing them to the latest global retail trends and technology, and providing interactive learning experiences with leading edge retailers and providers globally.”
The 2011 Young Retailer of the Year and worthy winner of last year’s prize, Kmart Tamworth's general merchandise manager Jennifer Skeahan-Heugh, will set off on the World Retail Study Tour on 9 May, visiting Tokyo, New York, London, Paris and Milan.
