As part of the 2018 QMCA Innovation and Excellence Awards, QMCA is delighted to launch the inaugural Ian Harrington Award, an award that will recognise individuals, teams or organisations who have gone above and beyond to achieve outstanding results.
QMCA President, Peter Anusas, paid tribute the man behind this new award, “Ian Harrington was a founding father and leader of QMCA, known for his commitment to improving collaboration within the contracting sector. Ian’s philosophy to ‘engage the brain’ to solve complex and difficult issues is an engineering trait that we would all do well to remember as we still face difficult times in the construction market in Queensland.”
“I am very fortunate that Ian mentored me for a number of years, and I cannot do justice to the insights, wisdom and encouragement he provided, helping to shape my career and professional development.”
“With a career spanning 45 years, Ian directly influenced the growth of many of QMCA’s members, helping them to become the successful businesses that they are today,” said Mr Anusas.
The award is open to QMCA members and will recognise collaboration within a project or across research that has had a beneficial impact upon the Contracting Industry.
“I cannot think of a better way to recognise and celebrate collaboration across our industry than via an award bearing the name of a leader, legend and driving force. Ian Harrington epitomised the values that we all aspire to reaching,” said Mr Anusas.
Expressions of Interest for the award are open and full details can be found at: www.qmca.com.au/qmca-awards
The Ian Harrington Award will be presented on 5th October at the QMCA Innovation and Excellence Awards Gala in Brisbane.
