Budget Direct's Out of Africa awards night

INSURANCE provider Budget Direct has celebrated its top performers at an Out of Africa themed awards night at The Sebel, Pelican Waters.

A major employer on the Sunshine Coast, Budget Direct contributes around $15 million to the local economy.

In December Budget Direct announced plans to expand its premises at Birtinya, providing room for nearly double its team of 270 consultants.

More than 180 staff and partners attended the exotic event on Saturday, March 12, where awards were presented to Consultant of the Year, Team of the Year, and Customer Experience Champion among others.

Five staff were inducted into the company's Hall of Fame which recognises those who have made long lasting contribution to our sales.

General Manager of Sales Justine Hudson said the annual event was a highlight for sales staff and managers across the business.

"Our sales team is key to the continued growth and success Budget Direct has experienced over 15 years," said Ms Hudson.

"It's wonderful to be able to celebrate so many dedicated and committed staff through these awards. Customer feedback is an integral component of the judging process and I'm proud to say our team keeps raising the bar year after year."
