Tanya Airey, Managing Director of Sunway – which will celebrate 50 years in business on 28th April next year, was declared the winner of the 2015 ITTN Industry Achievement Award at the 24th Irish Travel Trade Awards.
Irish Travel Trade News introduced the ITTN Industry Achievement Award last year to honour the innovation and contribution to the Irish travel industry made by an individual.
Each sponsor of the 24th Irish Travel Trade Awards was invited to nominate their candidate for the award and to provide a brief statement on his or her achievements. ITTN also made nominations.
The resulting shortlist of candidates was then sent to each nominator, who each sent their first, second and third nominations directly to Stephen Murray of international accountants and consultants Grant Thornton.
Grant Thornton then allocated three points to first nominations, two points to second nominations, and one point to third nominations, with the candidate who received the most points being declared the award winner.
