Congratulations to building industry veteran and philanthropist, Lindsay Partridge AM.
Lindsay has been recognised at the industries night of nights, receiving the HIA Sir Phillip Lynch award. Presented at the 2018 HIA CSR Australian Housing Awards in Singapore, the award recognises those who have made outstanding contributions to the HIA as well as to the building industry in general.
“Lindsay is worthy of his award. Not only has he shown what vision, hard work and initiative can do, but importantly has given so much back to the Australian community and the building industry. I congratulate him” said Mr. Goodwin.
As a recipient of an Order of Australia medal for his services, other contributions include and are not limited to as his appointment as CEO of The Brickworks Organisation, growing staff employed by 530 and sales by over $120m. In addition, Lindsay has raised over $3m for the Children’s Cancer Institute of Australia (CCIA).
In his passion to grow his industry and provide training for future industry professionals, he founded the Austral Bricks Bricklayer Training School which catered for young men and women wanting to obtain a bricklaying apprenticeship. He also co-founded the Australian Brick & Blocklaying Training Foundation (ABBTF). ABBTF’s primary purpose is to facilitate the placement of suitable bricklaying apprentices with bricklayers and builders and to help see them through their apprenticeship qualification. ABBTF’s key focus is to build a skilled workforce for the brickmaking and building industry.
We would like to congratulate Lindsay on his award and wish him the best of luck as he continues his exceptional work.
