Sharp Tudhope Lawyers’ Alasdair Christie took out the Carrus Outstanding Leadership Award.
Christie has been a property lawyer in Tauranga for more than 35 years and is a well-known name in the property industry for his expertise and practical approach.
The judges noted that Christie’s contribution to the property industry over decades had been immense.
“He’s a past president of Property Council and sits on numerous boards for the greater good of the city and is a partner in Sharp Tudhope Lawyers, who built the first Green Start Building in Tauranga,” they said.
He’s also a past president of the Property Council Bay of Plenty Branch, a member of the City Centre Action Group, a former trustee of the Tauranga Arts Festival, and former trustee of the Graeme Dingle Foundation. Unfortunately Christie was out of New Zealand travelling, so the award was accepted on his behalf.
“His commitment to the local industry and exemplary leadership make him a worthy recipient of this prestigious award,” the judges said.
