The industry leadership awards program recognizes emerging and established leaders employed in the general merchandise; health, beauty and wellness (HBW); nonfoods; and retail technology solutions sectors in the retailer, wholesaler, supplier, vendor and service provider communities who consistently demonstrate excellence and superior results, logged between May 1, 2019, and May 1, 2020, in three categories:

Emerging Champions

Recognizes inspirational retail industry professionals from the retail, supplier and service provider communities in the general merchandise; health, beauty and wellness; nonfoods; and retail technology solutions sectors. These industry leaders are making a mark—and a difference—in their stores, companies and communities through demonstrated leadership, results-oriented achievements, peer mentoring and related exceptional contributions to their companies’ overall success.

Legendary Champions

Recognizes established, senior-level business leaders from the retail, supplier and service provider communities in the general merchandise; health, beauty and wellness; nonfoods; and retail technology solutions sectors. These industry professionals consistently demonstrate outstanding leadership, dynamic vision, inventive strategic direction and innovative solution-building while providing exemplary inspiration for a new generation of up-and-coming leaders.

Hometown Hero

As we work, partner and live together during these uncertain times, we have not had to look very far for Hometown Heroes in the retail, supplier and service provider communities in the general merchandise; health, beauty and wellness; nonfoods; and retail technology solutions sectors. Hometown Heroes stand out for their above-and-beyond acts of dedication, compassion, thoughtfulness and joy as they work to keep customers and associates safe, healthy and protected in their local communities.

The 2020 class of Champions of Change will be revealed in Winsight Grocery Business’ October/November 2020 print issue and will be honored at a celebration event during GMDC’s new virtual event that has replaced the in-person Selfcare Summit. The virtual event will be held Oct. 5-23, 2020, and be hosted on the GMDC*Connect video conferencing platform.
