Fleet Feet, the retail leader in inspiring and empowering the runner in everyone, announced today the 12 employee honorees of its inaugural Pacesetter Award. Selected from a brand-wide nomination process open to Fleet Feet storeowners and operating partners earlier this year, the 2018 Pacesetters have made significant contributions to the brand, demonstrated leadership and exceptional customer service, and have made an impact in their communities.
Fleet Feet CEO and President Joey Pointer, along with Fleet Feet’s Franchise Advisory Council members and Store Support Team, officially celebrated and recognized the 12 employees at the 2018 Fleet Feet Pacesetter Summit in the brand’s Carrboro, North Carolina, headquarters. During the Pacesetter Summit, the honorees worked alongside the brand’s leadership team to develop the vision, goal, and operational plan for the brand’s forthcoming and first-ever national charitable foundation.
“There is no greater importance to our brand than our employees and our owners, and the energy, passion, and commitment they show each and every day in communities across the country,” says Pointer. “It’s no surprise that the idea for the Pacesettters summit originated at the store level with Charles Woodruff, our Albany franchise owner, and I was thrilled to have our team and our advisory council build off of his original idea and recognize such an exemplary group of individuals.”
The 2018 Pacesetter honorees will attend Fleet Feet’s National Conference in 2019. The nomination window for the 2019 Pacesetter honorees will open in July of 2019.
