The Art of Leadership with Roger Junker & Ross Prendergast
This month our speakers, Roger Junker and Ross Prendergast, will touch upon their vast leadership experiences. They will skillfully detail what we need to learn to become a great leader. They will share extraordinary tips on how to take charge and manage in any professional industry.
Roger Junker, the Store Manager of the newly opened Pandora Save-on-Foods, was born and raised in British Columbia. He started his career in the food retail industry when he worked for Safeway in 1983. After acquiring valuable business experience, he made the decision to further his leadership skills by attending Business School. After his studies, he returned to Safeway where he rapidly advanced through various managerial positions, including Produce Manager/Assistant Manager which is said to be the final and essential assessment to being a Store Manager.
His journey in the Fast-Moving Consumer Goods industry included many of B.C. communities, such as Kootenays, Vernon, Surrey, the Head office in Vancouver, Terrace, and eventually to Victoria.
This provided extensive leadership knowledge and skills, which eventually culminated in him becoming the Store Manager at the newly opened Pandora Save-on-Foods. Roger’s impressive management track record has allowed him to train twelve Store Managers to become his assistants. His leadership has been credited as “the best in the business”!
