Special gong for staffers 10 years on

Phil Frazer Employee Of The Decade
Boating industry icon Bill Barry-Cotter played host to his loyal staff at the Fireplace Restaurant in the Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove Resort this week to formally mark the 10th anniversary of the launch of the company.

While many of the staffers present had been with Bill since the start of Maritimo for quite a few the association has spanned many more years with some of them having worked for him at Riviera prior to him selling that business.

Bill had special praise for all those in attendance and highlighted the dedication and loyalty of three long terms associates in particular.

Phil Frazer was awarded the Employee Of The Decade gong and both Peter McGrath and Ross Willaton were presented with Significant Achievement Awards for their World Championship win at Key West in November last year. All three have been associated with Bill since before he founded Maritimo.

Sales and marketing manager, Greg Haines said: 'The team at Maritimo is one of the best and most skilled in the marine industry and Bill has engendered a sense of loyalty and friendship with long term associates that is rare in any industry, particularly ours where staff turnover is often fairly high.'
