Xtreme Engineering project manager Robert Clements’ commitment to his trade, job and employer has been recognised with an award nomination at the 2018 Gladstone Engineering Alliance Industry Awards.
“Mr Clements, along with another five outstanding businesses and individuals who work within the engineering, manufacturing and services sector, has been nominated for the 2018 awards,” GEA acting chief executive Julie Gelder said.
Ms Gelder said the awards were presented to individuals and businesses in the Central Queensland industrial sector who demonstrated quality, leadership, innovation and exceptional customer service in their work.
The GEA Industry Awards are made up of three separate categories: the Forty Calis Memorial Award, the Wayne Peachey Memorial Award and the Industry Hall of Fame.
Another nominee is Site Skills Training operations manager for Central Queensland, Nicola Curtis (pictured).
Ms Curtis started with Site Skills Training late last year after successfully managing her own safety consultancy business for the past six years.
In the last 12 months Ms Curtis has restructured the Site Skills Training team, revamped facilities, re-engaged with industry and primary business partners and gained considerable market share by expanding the company’s geographical footprint.
“The role is a combination of everything I have done in my sector from working in the primary industry and industrial and manufacturing sector to mining, oil and gas,” Ms Curtis said.
