7-Eleven's Lilian Mikhail wins Global Convenience Industry Achievement Award

Lilian Mikhail, 7-Eleven District Manager, was awarded the Global Convenience Industry Award in the retailer section at the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) Show in Las Vegas last night.

Lilian was recognised for her insight and strong business plan with solid ideas to enhance the customer experience and grow profitable sales in the Australian retail convenience market. In her presentation, which was voted best of the retailer category, Lilian gave examples from industry leaders as well as lessons and trends from convenience retailing around the globe.

As the winner of the Australian Association of Convenience Stores (AACS) Peter Jowett Industry Award for the retailer category, Lilian represented Australia at the global NACS awards and was thrilled to take home the global award.

Speaking about her win, Lilian said, “It is a great honour to have won this award amongst so many talented colleagues in the industry. It was a privilege to represent 7-Eleven Australia and AACS in Las Vegas,” Lilian said.

“I would like to acknowledge, first and foremost, 7-Eleven for their ongoing dedication to professional development and personal growth opportunities. The company has supported me immensely during my participation in this award and winning this award today is a real team effort.

This has been a fantastic way for me to challenge myself and give back to the industry, as well as 7-Eleven. In my six short years of being in the convenience retail industry with 7-Eleven, this truly is a great honour and career achievement,” Lilian said.

7-Eleven CEO, Warren Wilmot said, “We congratulate Lilian for what she has achieved – she’s done a fantastic job and we’re very proud of her.”
