Wormald sponsors the 2018 Barry Lee Technical Excellence Award


Wormald is proud to again sponsor the Barry Lee Technical Excellence Award which will be presented at the 2018 Fire Protection Industry Awards Gala on November 9, 2018 in Sydney. 

The award honours Barry Lee OAM for his achievements gained over 50 years in the industry including his role as a founding member of Fire Protection Australia.  In 1989 he received a United Nations Environment Program Citation of Excellence in recognition for his outstanding contribution to the protection of the Earth’s Ozone Layer, and in 1990 he was honoured with a Medal of the Order of Australia in the General Division for services to industry, in particular the area of fire protection.

The Barry Lee Technical Excellence Award recognises professional excellence and outstanding technical contribution to the Australian fire protection industry.  Last year’s award winner, Wormald’s Rodney Rolfe, was acknowledged for devoting more than four decades to technical training of students and his commitment to fire protection industry development.

All award winners are selected by a judging panel based on their merits, achievements and ability to demonstrate the ways in which technical expertise has been used to overcome challenges, collaborate with others and drive positive organisational change.

Commenting on Rodney’s 2017 award, Mr Lee said, “Rod Rolfe was a worthy awardee.  He has devoted an entire working lifetime to fire protection practice, with demonstrated technical excellence via strong qualifications, well-rounded field experience and continuing professional development.”

Congratulations to this year’s four finalists for 2018; Keith Levens, Jeff Marriott, David Sharp and Brett Staines.
