Two young men from the supply industry have taken out this year’s awards in Peter Jowett Scholarship staged by the convenience industry. Both were among the presenters at last month’s NZ Association of Convenience Stores (NZACS) and have been rewarded by trips to the major industry show in Atlanta in November.
The overall winner was Daniel Foote of Philip Morris and the runner-up was Neil Nelson of Imperial Tobacco. Foote will present at Atlanta on behalf of New Zealand, while Nelson is committed to preparing a report to the industry on his return.
The other presenters in the award programme were Luke Jameson (Philip Morris), Phil Prosser (Fonterra Brands), Joseph Nichol (British American Tobacco) and Aidan Hurley (Frucor Beverages).
