“ABN Amro Newcomer Retail Award”
The “ABN Amro Newcomer Retail Award” was won by Holy Moly Pizza. Holy Moly Pizza left the other two nominees Nishi and Lego Stores behind. Store concepts that have been active on the Dutch market for less than three years were eligible for this prize. 12 newcomers were assessed on aspects such as innovation, scalability and originality. Based on this, three newcomers were nominated by six jury members: Henk Hofstede (Sector Banker Retail Commercial Clients, ABN Amro), Linda Keijzer (CEO Xenos), Debbie Klein (CEO Leen Bakker), Peter van Woensel Kooy (senior editor Marketingtribune), Eric Habraken (Manager Foodservice & Retail, Hutten and De Verspillingsfabriek) and Francella ter Haar (Business Consultant Retail, Q&A). The nominees presented themselves by means of a video pitch during the category presentation of “ABN Amro Retailer of the Year the Netherlands”. The pitch of Holy Moly Pizza (see also the window below) was then found to be the most convincing by the jury and the audience. Below you can also view the video report of the festive ceremony with explanation by Henk Hofstede, digitally this year due to the special circumstances.
