On Saturday evening, November 24th, the Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards Gala Dinner was held at Jupiters with approximately 550 people in attendance. The evening was a great success.
RDA Gold Coast was a proud sponsor of the Family Business category in 2012. This category took out two major awards on the evening.
We are very pleased to announce that one of our monthly Family Business category winners, Technigro, was named overall Business of the Year and took out the supreme award.
We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate another monthly Family Business category winner, Usher & Son, who received the Bob Scott Encouragement Award. Bob was the Chair of Judges for the awards for many years and passed away a few years ago. He was very passionate about business and the award is presented to someone the organisers believe will do well in the future.
All of our monthly winners would have been worthy recipients. Congratulations to:
* May - Technigro
* Jun - John Henderson Real Estate
* Jul - Airport Con-x-ion
* Aug - FreeSpirit Resort & Holiday Parks
* Sep - Usher & Son
* Oct - Lucy Cole Real Estate
GC Business Excellence Awards President, Ian Cousins, said Technigro was a deserving winner of the Business of the Year title as well as being the annual winner of the Family Business Award. "Technigro is celebrating its 25th anniversary and it is now regarded as Australia's leading urban vegetation manager. It's grown from a one-man operation to almost 100, including three generations of the Bloor family."
Mr Bloor said Technigro was planning to expand throughout Australia and was investigating ways it could further sell its expertise internationally.
The RDA Gold Coast award was presented by Executive Officer, Ian Pritchard.
