Rural team is tops
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.
