2017 winner of the Retail Executive of the Year award, CEO, ModelCo, Shelley Sullivan said:  “I believe women in business should be encouraged to celebrate their success, especially at events such as the Executive of the Year Awards. It’s a fantastic stepping stone in a male-dominated environment.”  

 

The seventh annual Executive of the Year Awards recognise the achievements of leaders and professionals over the past year, and the contributions they have made to their companies across industry-specific categories, as well as job-specific and recognition awards, and the major award, CEO of the Year.

 

To be eligible for the Retail Executive of the Year award, applicants should be able to demonstrate excellence in their role within the retail industry (bricks-and-mortar retailers, and/or online merchants) be employed in a full-time senior position for a private, public, not-for-profit, or government organisation in Australia that reaches an annual turnover of $5m+.
