Erin Key is the retail experience manager at Fleet Feet. She oversees a staff of 30 and handles the operations of two retail locations. When Erin Key moved from Alleghany County to Winston-Salem, she didn’t know what exactly she would do for work. A long-time mentor of hers recommended she go find what she loves to do and do that. Erin was a marathon runner, so she knocked on the door of Fleet Feet. Over the next nine years, Erin worked her way up from being a full-time outfitter to being the general manager of Fleet Feet Winston-Salem and Fleet Feet Clemmons. Erin says she most enjoys working with young staff at Fleet Feet and mentoring them. The pace of a busy retail store keeps her engaged and excited to come to work. “If every day was predictable and required sitting at a desk, I would get bored,” she said. “It’s always something different – mentoring staff, training staff, events – all of that is part of my job and that makes it fun.” In her spare time, Erin enjoys spending time with her supportive husband, Adam, and two daughters, Stella (6) and Rowan (2).
