Scott Meneilly has been awarded the inaugural Retail Executive of the Year award by CEO Magazine.
The judging panel, including Gerry Harvey, selected Scott as the stand-out candidate from a strong field of nominees for his work over four years with Boost Juice.
Executive Director of Boost Juice, Janine Allis, said: “This recognition of Scott’s great work is very exciting, and publicly acknowledges what a strong executive he is for Boost.”
In receiving the award, Scott said: “I was honoured simply by being nominated by the exec team of Boost, however to be a finalist and ultimately win the award is a thrill. Retail is a vital part of the Australian economy, and can be an incredibly diverse and rewarding career.”
When asked about the progress of Boost he commented: "We have just reached 200 stores in Australia which is a great achievement. We are in more countries than any other juice bar in the world, with stores across fourteen other countries including South Africa, Malaysia, Chile, the UK and India. We plan to open another 10 stores in Australia before the end of the financial year and aim to exceed 300 stores globally before the end of 2013.
As the category leader, we have a responsibility to innovate and I am excited about what we have in place for the future with some awesome digital innovation and a fresh perspective on our product range. 2013 will be an exciting year for us!"
Scott has been the General Manager for Boost for nearly four years, and he is also the COO of parent company Retail Zoo. In addition to Boost Juice, Retail Zoo operates the largest Mexican brand, Salsa’s Fresh Mex Grill, and is close to acquiring a third Australian food retail brand.
