OTR proud to have two finalists in ‘Young Retailer of the Year’ Awards
South Australia’s largest private employer and leading retailer, OTR, is proud to have had two finalists in the 2016 Young Retailer of the Year awards which were announced in Sydney last night.
This is the second year in a row that OTR have had finalists in the awards. Last year Brady Hann made to the top 25 in the country and this year once again Brady Hann was selected along with OTR Area Manager Lindsay Smith.
The Young Retailer of the Year award is aimed at people under 25 and is an important award that acknowledges that the youth of today are our leaders of tomorrow.
“From day one, both of these team members showed signs of leadership and passion for the industry,” said OTR’s Chief Operating Officer, Michaela Webster.
“Brady Hann started with OTR as a trainee at Kensington, his transformation into Site Trainer and Assessor has been a real achievement. His personal presentation is only scratching the surface in the way he lives the OTR values,” said Michaela.
“The second finalist Lindsay Smith has managed a number of sites and was recently appointed Area Manager. He is hardworking, ambitious and we are focused on supporting his development in his new role,” said Michaela.
This achievement for Brady and Lindsay comes on the back of Peregrine recently winning the Retail Employer of the Year award which recognised Peregrine as a leading employer of choice within the retail sector, demonstrating a strong track record in staff training and education programs, internal communication, community support programs and corporate social responsibility.
“Peregrine is passionate about delivering a unique Australian retail experience to the community and at the core of this is our team of people who strive on offering exceptional service for every one of our guests,” concluded Michaela.
Peregrine has many exciting future plans which include a new $50 million investment in its Adelaide head office and centre of innovation.
