Will a winner of Generation Next Award

Otter Co-op manager recognized for his efforts

Otter Co-op's Mike Will won a Generation Next award last month in Toronto.

Mike Will has come a long way, from pumping gas part time to being announced as one of the 10 Generation Next award winners.

In 2000, Will worked at Otter Co-op part-time, filling up vehicles.

But these days, Will has much more on his plate.

Since 2014, Will has overseen all food operations, the gas bar and convenience stores for Otter Co-op, leading a team of 200 employees. He has also helped open five new stores in the past two years.

And last month, Will was one of 10 rising stars of the grocery trade recognized with Canadian Grocer’s Generation Next Awards.

The awards were presented at the Golden Pencil ceremony at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto on Nov. 23.

This was one of two recent honours for Will, who was also a nominee for the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce’s U40 business person of the year award.
