A Specsavers everywoman in Retail Ambassador crown has been given to the creator of the Zoella beauty range, Senior Brand Manager at Superdrug, Jill Flood.
Every year, 12 ambassadors are selected that are deemed to have made outstanding career achievements and been shown to inspire others.
Flood was awarded because she convinced Superdrug to partner with celebrity vlogger “Zoella” to create the Zoella beauty range, which completely exceeded sales expectations and is now available in all Superdrug stores across the UK.
Other 2015 winners include Lorna Billinge, VP of Global QA and Supply Chain Operations at QVC; Gillian Baird, Store Manager at ASDA in Birmingham and Negar Bagherzadeh, Senior Manager of Business Applications at Gap inc, who was named the 2015 Retail Ambassador of the Year.
Maxine Benson, Co-founder of everywoman says: “All this year’s ambassadors demonstrate the confidence, enthusiasm and ambition that a retail role model should possess. What struck the judging panel was how many of them have not only taken great risks but are willing to work so hard to see their ideas realised. Their energy and achievements are hugely inspirational for future generations considering their career options. They showcase retail to be the very exciting industry that it is. We congratulate all twelve of them.”
