Former Glen Cameron Group general manager Bruce Forsyth, and long-time VTA vice president and Ryans Group founder Dennis Ryan, were honoured during a special event earlier this week.
During the VTA President’s Dinner, held on Tuesday, the duo were celebrated for their contribution to the industry when they were awarded the W.F.D. Chalmers Award.
The W.F.D. Chalmers Award was instituted by the VTA in memory of Daryl Chalmers, who was a member of the Executive Council for over 40 years. Presented annually, it recognises those who have shown dedication, loyalty and commitment to the industry and the association.
Covid has affected plans to hold the event over the past two years, so 2021 recipient Forsyth was celebrated alongside the 2022 recipient Ryan.
“Bruce and Dennis are among the most recognised and respected members of the transport industry and between the two of them have decades of experience building successful businesses and employing hundreds of people in worthwhile transport roles,” said VTA CEO Peter Anderson.
“At the same time, they have shown a remarkable commitment to serving the interests of the VTA and its members, so it is befitting that they have been recognised with one of our Association’s highest honours.”
