The Avalon CEO was close to tears as he stepped onto the stage for the second time to accept the award for Medium to Large Business of behalf of the team at Avalon.
Justin Giddings said:
This is a truly exciting night for Avalon Airport. I was so surprised and pleased to have been awarded Business Leader of the Year, and I’m even more thrilled for the recognition of our incredible team in the Medium to Large Business Award.
The last twelve months have been extraordinary - building an international terminal and beginning international flights - and it was the strength of our teamwork that got us there.
I’d like to thank the team, as well as our committed supporters and partners, Geelong Chamber and the judges, Deakin University and the sponsors of our awards categories, Bay FM and Lyons Constructions.
