Last month, we attended The Grand Business South Awards in Dunedin. Our dedicated leader Josie Spillane was announced as Leader of the Year and walked away with the Excellence in Leadership award. Congratulations Jos.

Josie is not only our CEO for Highlands but also leads the group at Hampton Downs, Taupo International Motorsport Park, Game Over QT, Game Over Auckland & Game Over Christchurch. 

Although we didn’t walk away with the win for the other two categories we were finalists in, we felt privileged to make it as finalists and celebrate everything that Highlands has achieved in 9.5 years as well as the achievements of businesses in the Otago region.

Following her win Josie was interviewed by Sally Rae from the Otago Daily Times where she discussed her career journey including how she started working at Highlands. You can read the full article here.
