Every successful and dynamic organisation in the climate control industry boasts one or two rising stars.

As part of CCN's HVACR Leadership Awards, the search is on for the future champions of our industry.

This category – which is a double award – recognises our future leaders, those men and women who are still under the age of 30.

Sponsored by ABB, the Rising Star Award is presented to a Male Rising Star and a Female Rising Star.

It recognises young achievers rising quickly through the ranks, or a male or female that has contributed to a project, product or program that has been a success.

Last year's winners were Temperzone technician, Sean Hart, and Heatcraft fridgie, Shayne Boyle.

Both of these rising stars are passionate about the trade and are looking forward to an exciting future.

ABB's business unit manager for drives, Michael Briggs, is a big believer in recognising up and coming talent.

“The Rising Star category uncovers the high performers within the industry and an awards program helps motivate them even more,” he said.

“It is also important to have a dual award that recognises young men and women individually.

"Increased diversity makes HVACR a more attractive employment destination, thereby attracting the best technical and commercial talent coming out of our trade schools and universities.”

Nominations close on July 31, 2018 and winners will be announced at CCN Live which will be held in Melbourne this year at the Arts Centre on October 11, 2018.
