The Shelflife Grocery Management Awards took place on May 17th to honour the best and the brightest of Ireland’s grocery retail industry. The event, which celebrates true talent and dedication within grocery management, was the biggest ever in the Awards history with over 400 attendees and 23 awards presented from awards for Best Bakery, Off License and Protein Manager to Convenience Store and Supermarket Managers of the Year. The biggie, Shelflife National Grocery Manager of the Year went to Glenn Myers of SuperValu Charlesland, Greystones, who pointed to his dedicated team as the reason behind his success.

Excel Recruitment have been involved with the awards since their foundation and are delighted to continue this partnership as the Awards grow and become bigger and better. This year we had the pleasure of presenting two awards with Head of Grocery Nikki Murran presenting Tarpey’s SuperValu, Lakeland Retail Park, Cavan with the award for Best Team Performance and Katie Consenheim, head of our dedicated training facility Futureproof presented the award for Best Customer Service Manager to

CEO of Excel Recruitment Barry Whelan, co-founder and judge, says

“When John and I started these awards in 2003 it was with one thing in mind. To recognise and reward the best managers.  We are not recognising the biggest store or the store with the best consumer insights or cleverest marketing campaign. We are not here to recognise the best margin or highest footfall.  These awards are or the managers who most inspire, who show the most dedication and a real love of the retail trade. It is for managers that show young people that working in retail isn’t just a weekend job, but a worthwhile career.”

Massive congratulations to all the winners from the Excel team and we’re already looking forward to next year. Visit the Grocery Management Awards website here.
