Compass Housing has had its innovative approach to providing social and affordable housing and its contribution to community recognised after being named a finalist in the Hunter Business Chamber Awards.
Compass is a finalist for the Contribution to the Region Award and Excellence in Innovation Award.
Group Managing Director Greg Budworth said it was an honour to be recognised against other high caliber organisations. He said the credit goes to the whole team at Compass.
Compass is no stranger to the Awards. Last year Mr Budworth was named Business Leader of the Year and Compass Housing was crowned with a Business Excellence Award.
The Awards are the peak accolade for businesses and organisations based in the NSW Hunter region. Organisers claim they are the premier and the largest regional business chamber awards in Australia. This year 77 finalists will compete for 14 awards. They will be announced at a gala ceremony in Newcastle on August 10.
