Paul Francis honoured with President’s Award

The CCF WA President’s Award was presented to Challenge Brick Paving’s Paul Francis at a gala dinner on Friday night. Winners of the 2016 CCF WA Industry & Training Awards were also announced.

The President’s Award recognises an exceptional person who has made an excellent and sustained industry wide contribution over many years.

CCF WA President David Della Bona said Mr Francis was one of CCF WA’s most loyal servants, a man who gave his time selflessly over nearly two decades in the service of the Federation and the industry.

“Paul took on the role of Honorary Treasurer of CCF WA in 1998 and served for 17 years, retiring from the CCF WA board in 2015,” Mr Della Bona said.

“Paul was a constant through a time of great change at CCF WA. He served under seven different branch presidents and was always a reliable source of sensible advice.”

There were 41 finalists in the 12 Industry & Training Award categories. All finalists are profiled in a special feature in the latest edition of CCF WA’s quarterly magazine, ONSITE. To view the feature, click here.
