Which travel bosses made CEO of the Year?

The CEO Magazine has unveiled a veritable suite of impressive executives that made the finals for the 2017 Executive of the Year Awards.

The accolades celebrate the success, innovation and business prowess of individuals in corporate Australia.

Now in its sixth year, the 2017 Executive of the Year Awards — to be held on November 15 at Palladium, Crown Melbourne — is anticipated to be the biggest yet, with more than 550 guests and nominees attending from the country’s most respected brands.

With thousands of entries, 10 experienced judges from a range of industries have had another mighty challenge to determine the finalists in each of the 23 categories, including the pinnacle: CEO of the Year.

But we’re not here for the bankers or IT bosses, no no. We’re here for the tourism sector.

So check out which Chief Execs made it to the finals in the Hospitality and Tourism Executive of the Year category.

Hospitality and Tourism Executive of the Year 

  • Ann Sherry AO, Executive Chairman, Carnival Australia
  • Barry Robinson, President and Managing Director, Wyndham Vacation Resorts Asia Pacific
  • Steven Wright, CEO, BIG4 Holiday Parks Australia
  • Ramzey Choker, Director and Creative Director, The Grounds
