In April we will come together for the first time in three years to recognise the contributions of those who have made the industry what it is today, those who continue to go “above and beyond the call of duty”, and those who are truly shaping the future of our industry.
The National Collision Repairer Lifetime Achievement Award is based on the same principles as the US Collision Industry’s Hall of Eagles, which was formed in 1989 and is now recognised as the most prestigious honour any industry professional can receive.
The NCR Lifetime Achievement awards were founded in 2007 by David Newton-Ross and since then we have inducted 50 industry leaders onto the Honour Roll, including collision repairers, equipment suppliers, coatings suppliers, insurers and, of course, TAFE teachers. Of the 50, there have been five international recipients who have not only developed the industry in their home countries but also left an enduring mark on the Australian collision industry landscape. We are proud and privileged to continue the tradition.
Of course, this is only possible with the support of our sponsors, many of whom have been with us since the inaugural awards and, once again, we take this opportunity to express our gratitude to the individuals and their organisations who support this initiative that truly does “honour the past”.
The announcement and presentations will take place at the exclusive 16th Annual Lifetime Achievement Awards presentation on 6 April in Melbourne, followed by a special report on the occasion and recognition of the inductees in the May issue.
