MEA Announces Winners of WA State Awards
Last Friday night, the best and brightest members of Western Australia’s electro-technology industry gathered at Perth’s Duxton Hotel for Master Electricians (MEA) WA State Excellence Awards.
An overwhelming number of entries were received this year, covering a range of categories from Master Electrician of the year, through to awards for women in contracting and energy efficiency projects.
Master Electrician of the year award recipient Greg Allan of Response Fire & Electrical was acknowledged on the night for his contribution to professional development through the foundation of The Electricians Success Academy, which was born out of his own frustrations as an apprentice to educate and support apprentices and electricians at all levels.
The judges noted Allan’s fresh ideas and can-do attitude, making him an inspiration for all within the sector.
Among the award winners were Corey Lutz of Techforce Electrical, who took out the Legrand Apprentice of the Year and Kimberley Madden- Marshall of Comspark, who was named Women in Contracting award winner for displaying outstanding leadership managing the business through signficant change and as on-site project manager on the Stirling Cross residential towers and Quest hotel project.

“MEA is proud of the high caliber of award recipients and their tremendous contribution to the growth of the industry,” Mr Richards said.
