Pippa Rowntree, Marketing Manager at Leah Jay, has won the Operational Leadership Award at the 2018 Real Estate Institute of New South Wales Awards for Excellence.
Pippa is a two-time finalist at the REINSW Awards, having also been nominated for the Communications Award in 2017. As a member of Leah Jay’s executive team since 2015, she carries the title of Marketing Manager, though her role is far more diverse. She is the brand guardian and drives the marketing objectives of the business.
Due to her humanistic skills and knowledge, Pippa’s skills and experience have allowed her to take on broader functions across the business.
The Awards for Excellence are the biggest and most respected industry awards in NSW.
Operational Leadership is a brand-new category for 2018, recognising the outstanding contributions and achievements of individuals working in operational leadership positions.
Pippa said she felt honoured to receive the award.
“I am so proud of the Leah Jay team for being finalists in four awards this year, and so pleased to have won the Operational Leadership Award,” Pippa said.
“This wouldn’t have been possible without the challenges and opportunities I’ve been given, or the support I’ve received from the rest of our team.”
Leah Jay’s three other finalists at this year’s awards included Leah Jay (John Greig OAM Community Service Award), the Leah Jay Belmont office (Residential Property Management Team Award) and Melanie Frith (Operational Support Award).
Michelle McLean, Senior Property Manager at Leah Jay Belmont and Chair of the REINSW Property Management Chapter, also received a Service Recognition award on the evening for her contribution to the review of the Residential Tenancies Act.
With eight total REINSW Award wins and 23 finalist nominations, Leah Jay is the most awarded property management agency in NSW.
The Awards for Excellence Gala Dinner was held at Sydney Town Hall on 27 September 2018.
