Speaker: Mr. Roger Junker

The Future of the Grocery Industry in the Internet Age, Opportunities and Careers in an Ever Changing Economy with Roger Junker

For the monthly mixer in April VMBC’s guest speaker, Roger Junker, will be talking about how to become a store manager and move through the ranks in the retail industry, as well as starting a career in the retail industry, especially in Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG).

Roger Junker, the Store Manager of Save on Foods at Saanich Plaza was born and raised in Castlegar, B.C.  He started his career in the food retail industry when he worked for Safeway in 1983.  He took some time off to attend Business School and; he returned to Safeway and ascended through various manager ranks including Produce Manager / Assistant Manager which is said to be the final and essential assessment to being a Store Manager.  His journey in the FMCG industry took him to all of the Kootenay Stores, Vernon, Surrey, the Head office in Vancouver, Terrace, and eventually to Victoria.  In 2014, he switched to Save on Foods while he was located at the Fort and Foul Bay store.  Since, he has led the Save on Foods Tillicum store and now the Saanich Plaza location.  He has trained 12 Store Managers who have been his assistants and his leadership has been credited as bar none.
