Nickoy Kunkel, General Manager of Office Depot located off of Marsha Sharp Freeway, is tied for May Ambassador of the Month.
He shares this award with Tobe Callahan, the General Manager of Office Depot on Slide Road.
The Ambassador of the Month is chosen based on a point system, where every ambassador receives a point when they attend an event to support the Lubbock Chamber. Both candidates showed passion for service throughout the month of May and are recognized for their hard work.
Kunkel has been an ambassador for the last five months and said that he has enjoyed this program because of the community involvement and networking opportunities it offers.
“The most rewarding part has been building new business relationships in our community,” Kunkel said.
Kunkel said he is proud to represent Office Depot and build the company’s involvement within Lubbock. Kunkel has worked at Office Depot for four years and is responsible for the day to day operations of running the store, as well as, client engagement, building store sales and brand execution.
“I am also a training general manager,” Kunkel said, “which means I train new managers that join the Office Depot team.”
Kunkel said his favorite part of serving as an ambassador has been attending ribbon cuttings to celebrate other businesses in Lubbock and meeting new people. He looks forward to attending more events and becoming much more involved with the Lubbock Chamber in the future.
Congratulations Nickoy Kunkel for being selected this month, keep up the good work!
