Tourism leaders recognised at Waikato awards

7 Nov 2017  By Staff Reporter

SkyCity’s Michelle Baillie and Hobbiton’s Kirsten Madill have been awarded the CEO of the Year and the Emerging Leader of the Year respectively at the Westpac Waikato Business Awards.

Michelle Baillie


Baillie, who is general manager of SkyCity Hamilton, won her award for demonstrating exemplary leadership. Entrants were evaluated on the performance of the company that they lead, the extent to which they had contributed to the business’ performance, overall leadership qualities, and the esteem in which they are held by peers.
Madill, who is Hobbiton Movie Set’s chief operating officer, won her award for having significantly contributed to her organisation.
Hamilton & Waikato Tourism chief executive Jason Dawson said the awards, which were held at Claudelands Events Centre on Friday night, provided well-deserved recognition for both women.
“We have an amazing team of inspiring tourism leaders in the Waikato region, including Michelle and Kirsten who are both strategic thinkers and smart operators,” said Dawson.
“It comes as no surprise to me that they have won awards for their work, and it’s fantastic to see this high-level recognition from the wider business sector.”
Foster Construction, which built Claudelands Event Centre, won the Supreme Business of the Year award.
