Dreams has been shortlisted for two Retail Week Rising Stars Awards. The nominated finalists are Jonny Gilbert, store manager for Dreams in High Wycombe, and Nick Meehan, area manager for Dreams, southern region.

The Retail Week Rising Stars Awards recognise talented individuals who go the extra mile within their business, and shines the spotlight on outstanding achievements within the retail industry.

Retail Week Rising Stars ambassador, Theo Paphitis, one of the UK’s most high profile businessmen, comments: “For me, the Retail Week Rising Stars Awards in association with Theo Paphitis Retail Group is a vitally important awards ceremony, not only for retail, but also for how it recognises future leaders of the retail world.”

Jeremy Gerken, retail operations director at Dreams, says: “Being recognised in the Retail Week Rising Stars Awards is a fantastic achievement for Jonny and Nick, and is very well deserved. Both have demonstrated extraordinary commitment to Dreams, and in return have seen exceptional career development in a short space of time. We wish them every success in the awards.”

Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed by a judging panel during June and July, and the award ceremony announcing the winners will be held on Tuesday 15 September 2015 at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.
