Ru­ral team is tops

The Western Star - - NEWS -

EV­ERY day the team at Land­mark serve the ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties in Roma, Mitchell and In­june, and their ef­forts have not gone un­no­ticed, with the con­sol­i­dated branch re­ceiv­ing a nom­i­na­tion for Branch of the Year within their com­pany.

Up against some stiff com­pe­ti­tion, mak­ing it in to the top three branches across Aus­tralia was no mean feat, and the en­tire team at Land­mark are happy just to be nom­i­nated, even though they didn’t win the top gong.

“Being nom­i­nated for best in the coun­try is a pretty good achieve­ment, con­sid­er­ing the on­go­ing conditions,” Land­mark Roma mer­chan­dise man­ager Richard John­son said.

“It has been a chal­leng­ing year for ev­ery­one with one of the worst ever dry spell we have seen, so it is a good re­ward con­sid­er­ing what us and our cus­tomers have had to go through over the last twelve months.”

With 16 em­ploy­ees over three branches, Mr John­son said lo­cal growth, and work­ing to­gether as a strong group, is what clinched them the nom­i­na­tion.

“The three branches have al­ways been there, it has only been in the last eight years that we have com­bined them un­der the one branch man­ager,” he said.

“From a Mara­noa point of view, it has been a strong thing to have the three branches to­gether..”

The branch also ac­knowl­edges its loyal cus­tomers’ role in their re­cent suc­cess.

“Our cus­tomers may not be overly aware that we were nom­i­nated (for the award), but we wouldn’t have got­ten this far with­out them,” ad­min of­fi­cer Leah Cranston said.

Land­mark Roma/Mitchell/ In­june was one of three branches up for the ti­tle, in di­rect com­pe­ti­tion with Land­mark Emer­ald and Land­mark Nar­ra­court, ul­ti­mately win­ning the Branch of the Year award.
