The 2007 recipients of the Director’s Award for Excellence were:
Tania Ashworth – for her drive, enthusiasm and professionalism in running the Airlink Taskforce, and especially for her project management and facilitation of the Airlink workshops over the past two years.
David Sumner – for his exemplary attitude, work ethic and willingness to lead and adapt to a changing work environment. David undertakes his warehousing services role with an agreeable and customer focused manner and has also played a significant part in the implementation of the Head Office Logistics Centre.
