Riviera’s star performers a shining example
Going the extra mile is all in a day's work for Cassandra Meyers and Sean Drysdale who were named Riviera's Star Performers for the third quarter.
The Star Performer awards have been running for more than 10 years and recognise outstanding employee contribution.
Executive assistant Cassandra Meyers put her heart and soul into organising the Sanctuary Cove and Sydney International Boat Shows, the most significant events on Riviera's domestic calendar; that even a broken ankle couldn't hinder her commitment to seeing the job through.
Director of brand and communications Stephen Milne commended Cassandra for her dedication, support and ‘can do' attitude.
"I think it's that real sense of responsibility if you take on a project and you want to see it through to the best of your ability regardless of health or circumstance," Mr Milne said.
"Cassandra's attitude is a prime example of what has made Riviera a great company - it's that can do attitude, a willingness to take on other tasks and responsibilities outside of her direct area."
The star performer award for occupational health and safety went to Sean Drysdale, cabinet-maker and joiner.
Nominated by joiner shop supervisor Des Davidson who describes Sean as an outstanding role model.
"He always goes over and above his normal duties to ensure the health and safety of his fellow work colleagues," Mr Davidson said.
"He is on the safety committee as well as being our representative in the shed and shows tremendous support for policies and procedures."
Outside of work, Sean enjoys building electric guitars and has made about 12 to date. He is also an avid triathlete.
Cassandra and Sean will vie for the overall Star Performer of the Year award, selected by the Riviera senior management team, which will be announced in December.
