Gold Coast Management Excellence Awards


Adam Wright (Langports’ Gold Coast Principal) was recently awarded as a finalist in the Gold Coast Management Excellence Awards held at the Marriot Hotel, Surfers Paradise.   Adam was awarded for excellence in the Professional Manager category of the prestigious Australian Institute of Management Awards.  Nominees included senior managers, executives and leaders of businesses across all industries, who have worked for their organisation in a professional management capacity for at least three years.

The Professional Manager of the Year category is not only for CEO’s or high profile executives but is aimed at those who have made management their profession — who have had an extraordinary impact on their organisation’s success through forward thinking strategies.

Nominees must be able to demonstrate:

  • The ability to manage complex tasks, people, processes and the macro-environment
  • Recognition by their organisation, board, staff or other stakeholders as showing excellence in management and leadership
  • Effective communication of their organisation’s goals and vision to all stakeholders
  • A commitment to mentoring or other leadership activities
  • Demonstrated performance to budget

Nominees may be employed in either the public or private sectors.  Adam Wright was commended for his ability to lead and to motivate his team and for his competitive and dedicated nature to both leadership and management.  After being shortlisted from a large number of nominees, Adam was then selected in the top six professional managers from through the region, where he was then interviewed by a panel of five judges.  Adam then went on to be awarded on the night as one of the top finalists is the highly acclaimed and prestigious Professional Manager category — a significant accomplishment and accolade for any manager.
