Matt Fedrick, Ingenia Lifestyle’s Development Director in Queensland, and Sharon Manson, Community Sales Manager at Ingenia Lifestyle Hervey Bay, Queensland, were honoured for their work at the National Retirement Living Summit on the Gold Coast.
“I think there is a real need for the creation of community and a commitment to transparency in the industry, which extends to advising potential residents to always consider, question and understand the options available when looking at any retirement community,” said Sharon, Salesperson of the Year.
“I approach our customers as if I was advising my own family – I believe that extra attention and openness ensures that customers and their families can feel confident in choosing the community that best suits their lifestyle needs.”
Matt, who was awarded the title of Future Retirement Living Leader, was instrumental in introducing a new, more affordable style of home at Ingenia Lifestyle’s Chambers Pines community in Chambers Flats, Logan.
“We have been able to introduce affordable housing in these areas, offering properties starting from $239,000 in the Hervey Bay region when the median house price for this area is around $420,000,” he said.
Ingenia Communities CEO Simon Owen said Matt is highly regarded within the Ingenia business.
“Matt runs one of the largest and most profitable business units at Ingenia – our Queensland development business. He demonstrates great leadership in his role daily and constantly coaches and supports his team to be their best,” said Simon.
“He constantly seeks to challenge the status quo and bring new ways of thinking into the business – whether it is building methodology, addressing a new segment in the seniors housing market or repurposing a 40-year-old building.
“Both Matt and Sharon are tremendous assets to the Ingenia team and we are very proud to have their achievements recognised and celebrated by their industry peers and to support their continued success into the future.”
