'I am overwhelmed to have been selected as a finalist for this prestigious award. It is such a fantastic achievement for my team, our beautiful store and myself,' said Karen
With only nine months passed since the store opened in T2, this nomination to the final is recognition for the hard work of Karen and her team in establishing the store here at Dublin Airport.
'My passion and enthusiasm for this business is what keeps my team motivated and driven and to see that hard work recognised just makes myself and the team strive to be the best,' Karen said.
Dublin Airport Director of Retail Paul Neeson said: 'The Retail Excellence Ireland Awards is the benchmark by which the best in Irish retail are judged and I am delighted that many of our stores have made the final list in three separate categories.
'I am particularly pleased that one of our managers has been selected as a finalist in the Manager of the Year category.'
