With 40 years under her belt as a McDonald’s employee, the last 21 as a restaurant manager, Nanaimo’s Nancy Lamont is a familiar face to her customers and a key component in the company’s success.

And for her efforts on behalf of the company, Lamont was recently honoured with a McDonald’s Canada Outstanding Manager of the Year award.

The award is presented to 98 restaurant managers across Canada who have made tremendous contributions to McDonald’s in the areas of customer service, staff training and development, co-ordinating local marketing programs and sales building.

Each award winner receives a commemorative plaque and shares of McDonald’s corporation stock.

“I’m thrilled to receive this honour from McDonald’s,” said Lamont, who works at the Rutherford Road McDonald’s. “I love my job and it’s great to be recognized for my efforts and successes at my restaurant.”

Lamont began her career with McDonald’s at the front counter of the Terminal Park McDonald’s in Nanaimo.

Since starting with the company, she has been recognized as manager of the year four times.

She said she truly appreciates working in an environment where she can interact with customers and help develop and train her dedicated staff.

“Nancy has certainly earned this incredible recognition,” said Wayne Krawchuk, Nanaimo McDonald’s franchisee.

“Her commitment to the success of the company and to her employees has been extraordinary. Nancy is an integral part of the company and we are extremely proud of her accomplishment.”
