  • Resort Team of the Year: Tiki Village International Resort

  • Corporate Manager of the Year: Mark Dobbie – Corporate Head Office

Facing admirable competition in 2013, judges highlighted the positive team dynamic displayed by all Classic award recipients as the defining factor of their success.

Honoured for best new recruit, Brett Shanks from Beach House in Coolangatta stood out to judges as ‘having the most positive influence on change within an organisation’.
