Village Manager Jo-Anne Quinn and Sales Manager Joanna Watkins named leaders in NSW

Jo-Anne Quinn has been named the Retirement Living Council’s NSW/ACT Village Manager of the Year and Joanna Watkins the Salesperson of the Year at a council event in Sydney last Thursday.

Jo-Anne is the Village Manager of Aveo’s The Manors of Mosman Retirement Village, 8km northeast of Sydney’s CBD. She has been working for Aveo since January 2015.

She said the award was for “all the hard work, doing all the little things right, building a team culture, having a really good staff, good care, really just acknowledgement of looking after our residents as they age.”

“I’m very excited, elated, enthusiastic and ready for the next 10 years,” she told the audience at the NSW Retirement Living Council Outlook event in Sydney.

Joanne is the Sales Manager at Australian Unity’s Willandra Village in Cromer, 20km northeast of Sydney’s CBD.

“I’m really honoured. It’s a very special moment,” she said on receiving her award from James Wiltshire, DCM Institute’s Executive Commercial Director (pictured).

“COVID was really challenging for everyone and it was the refurbishment, the legal team, the operation, everyone pulling together to create a really special feel or record-breaking sales,” she said

Jo-Anne and Joanne go forward to the National titles which will be announced on 22 June at the 2023 Property Council’s National Retirement Living Summit on the Gold Coast.
