Cowra’s Joanna Treasure has taken out the award for Outstanding Employee at the Western NSW Business Awards last Friday night.
Ms Treasure, of Thring Pastoral Company, progressed to the regional awards after taking out the equivalent award at the 2020 Cowra Business Chamber Awards back in February last year. She will now progress to the NSW State Business Awards on November 26, meaning that Cowra will be represented at the state awards for the third time in a row.
This year’s Western NSW awards ceremony was hosted virtually due to COVID-19 restrictions.
“The Western NSW Business Awards are all about celebrating and showcasing the diverse array of talent in Western NSW’s business community and this year’s winners should feel incredibly proud to be named as the region’s leading businesses and leaders for 2021, said Vicki Seccombe, Regional Manager – Western NSW, Business NSW.
“It’s been an incredibly tough number of years for many businesses due to Covid, drought, bushfires and mouse plagues, so these awards are a wonderful opportunity to shine a spotlight on the ingenuity, strength and resilience of all the finalists from right across the region.
“When we launched these Awards earlier in the year, we hadn’t expected we would be dealing with the current restrictions and we pivoted online, but we look forward to celebrating in person in 2022.”
“Based on the calibre of this year’s finalists, I expect that our regional winners will again do very well at the State Business Awards.”
