DALE ELPHINSTONE APPOINTED OFFICER OF THE ORDER OF AUSTRALIA

A well-deserved award …


It gives us great pleasure to advise that on Monday 10 June 2019, Dale Elphinstone - our dealer principal - was named in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.

Dale was appointed an Officer (AO) of the Order of Australia (General Division) by the Governor-General, in his capacity as Chancellor of the Order of Australia.

The Australian system of Honours and awards was established in 1975, when the Queen approved the institution of the Order of Australia: 'an Australian Society of Honour for according recognition to Australian citizens and other persons for achievement or meritorious service'.
Australian Honours system appointments to the Order of Australia confer the highest recognition for outstanding achievement and service.

The Officer of the Order of Australia is awarded for distinguished service of a high degree to Australia or humanity at large.
Dale said he was both humbled and very honoured to receive this award, and said it “recognises the efforts and dedication of our people in the many communities in which we operate and wished to pass on a special thank you, for each and everyone’s contribution”.

Please join us in sincerely congratulating Dale on this well-deserved award.
