SALISBURY, N.C. — The Food Lion Family and Bloom has recognized Scott Brinson as the recipient of the 2010 store manager excellence award. Brinson, who is the store manager of Food Lion in Jacksonville, N.C., was selected from a group of seven other market/banner winners.
The store manager excellence awards are a key part of Food Lion Family's and Bloom's efforts to acknowledge the leadership role store managers play. Food Lion Family president Cathy Green Burns presented Brinson with the award earlier this week during the company's Leadership Summit.
"Scott sets a very high standard for his store," stated Brinson's district manager Chris Whaley. "Scott does a great job in motivating his associates to achieve greatness in all that they do. He uses a common sense approach to his business to achieve positive outcome."
The store manager excellence award selection includes nine areas of focus: Associate development, leadership, strategic decision-making, cross-organizational collaboration and teamwork, executional excellence, extraordinary results, great customer experiences, community involvement, and diversity and inclusion.
"There were other people who could have won it, but I guess I was the lucky one this year," stated Brinson, who has worked with Food Lion for 19 years, with nine of those years as store manager. "It is a humbling experience for me because this is such a prestigious award."
