Chapman on an example of promoting from within: "We always look to promote from our bench and have been very successful filling our management positions in this manner. Our career path plan has salespeople becoming finance managers, then sales managers, then through our corporate university models in which they get exposed to what it takes to lead a store. "Abel Bosman is a great example of someone on this path. He is currently a finance director on his way to a bright future with our company."
