Port of Townsville collects bronze at Australian Reporting Awards

20 June 2018

Port of Townsville Limited has won bronze at the Australasian Reporting Awards (ARA) held in Sydney this evening.  

The Awards were established in 1950 by leading business leaders for excellence in preparing annual reports, to improve the standards of financial reporting and communicating with stakeholders in Australia.

Port of Townsville Limited (POTL) Chief Executive Officer Ranee Crosby said that receiving an award from ARA was wonderful recognition of great teamwork between the Port and local business TBD, who designed the POTL Annual Report for 2016/17.

“Our Annual Report last financial year was a collaboration of ideas between the Port and TBD’s team, and it’s exciting to have been recognised for our work by an esteemed independent body,” said Ms Crosby.

“This is the first time we’ve nominated for an ARA so to get a gong is something we are proud of.”

“This bronze award is inspiration for us to try even harder for the gold next year,” said Ms Crosby.

TBD Creative Director Travis Farley said that the result was a great achievement.

“As a local business, TBD is grateful to work with the Port of Townsville, and really happy to play a part in helping them receive national recognition for their efforts”.
