Alison Rogers - Manager of the Year
Arcadia Waters village manager judged best in the state.
Alison Rogers, Village Manager at Arcadia Waters Swanbourne - The Beaumont, was announced as the Western Australia regional winner of the 2014 Property Council Retirement Living Manager of the Year at the state Retirement Living Conference on 27 August.
The aims of the award are to identify excellence in a retirement village community and recognise the commitment of the village manager to achieve the ultimate goal of maintaining a successful, happy and harmonious village. It is the pinnacle award of the industry.
On hearing of her win Alison said that she was a little surprised and wanted to thank her “wonderful residents” and Arcadia Group for endorsing her.
“It is really rewarding to be part of the supportive team here at the Arcadia Group. Our managing director, Roger Kwok, has a sincere and genuine interest in the residents’ well-being and lifestyle and this flows through to the village managers and on to the residents also.”
“My experience with the judging process was outstanding. It was very professional and I was so proud to show the judges around our beautiful village, especially as our residents were waiting with baited-breath to tell them how much they love living at The Beaumont.”
Alison is now in the running for the 2014 National Manager of the Year Award. The national winner will be revealed at the 2014 National Retirement Living Summit held in Sydney in November.
