“They may be someone who flies below the radar – whatever their role, they are above all passionate and devoted to always going beyond what’s expected to deliver outstanding service,” she said.

“They contribute to achieving overall results, they make things happen and contribute to the success of the industry.

“This has become one of our most popular awards as it singles out individuals who have been nominated by their organisation and their peers. Their work impacts the whole industry.”

The winner will be announced at the EEAA Awards for Excellence Gala dinner taking place at Myer Mural Hall in Melbourne, on December 4.
