Recognition for Outstanding Sunshine Coast Communities

Dynamic Sunshine Coast MP Andrew Wallace is a different political animal than most politicians. Instead of receiving awards, he is giving them.  

Andrew is hosting the inaugural Fisher Electorate Awards in recognition of the tireless work of many Sunshine Coast companies and community organisations.


Elypsys Fibre Networks and Rumba Resort are joint sponsors of the awards. Winners will receive their trophies at an event on 21 March 2018.

Elypsys CEO Adrian Madjeric, a key sponsor of the Sunshine Coast University Innovation Centre, said that his decision to sponsor the Fisher Awards arose from his personal experience as a finalist in the 2017 Maroochydore Chamber of Commerce-sponsored Sunshine Coast Business Awards.


“There is such a mix of emotion in being recognized for an award,” said Adrian, “on one hand there is pride, and on the other there is humility. Being recognized for your work in the community is humbling because there are so many worthy entrants.”

“I meet many of the unsung heroes that Andrew is talking about in education, employment and retirement as my staff and I engage with our major business clients including schools, small and large businesses, health centres and retirement homes.


Mr Madjeric acknowledged the energy Andrew Wallace has devoted to encouraging Sunshine Coast businesses to compete for contracts in the burgeoning Defence Industry Support sector.


“In particular, Elypsys recognizes the commitment of Andrew and the Minister for Defence Industry Support Christopher Pyne MP as a combined driving force for Sunshine Coast businesses looking to make an impact on global markets.”


“As a private telecommunications carrier countering the historically poor and expensive business grade internet on the coast, we welcome the commitment of both individuals and entities who make the Coast an attractive location for business, lifestyle and leisure for all ages.”
