Charlynne Stunder, the store manager for the Overwaitea Food Group in Vancouver, is a FMI’s store manager finalist.
Under Stunder’s management, the store has posted a steady increase to 13.1% in 2014.
A report stated that Stunder prioritizes service to the local community. For example, last summer, every Friday afternoon she and store team members attended a children’s sports camp and served a free snack for the kids.
Stunder also holds a leadership role in the Overwaitea Food Group’s “Inspire Network” – a group that supports the leadership development of women within the organization.
Stunder and the other store manager awards finalists will be honoured at FMI Connect in Chicago, June 10; and four grand prize winners will be announced then as well.
