MGD directors recognised for community service
Two directors of wealth management firm MGD have been named recipients of the Rotary Foundation’s Paul Harris Fellow award.
Stephen Furness and Andrew Albury received the award after being nominated by other members of the Rotary Club for their “ongoing commitment” to the group, according to a statement.
The Paul Harris Fellow, named for the Rotary Club’s founder, is awarded to people who demonstrate “exemplary work in community service” or make a substantial donation to the Rotary Club.
“The awards made to Stephen and Andrew were in recognition of donations made by other club members, who then nominated them both for the efforts they have contributed to our club,” said Greg Pearson, president of the Rotary Club of Brisbane High-Rise.
“We are proud to have been able to make these awards and are grateful for Stephen and Andrew being active members of our Rotary club.”
MGD chief executive John Barton congratulated Mr Furness and Mr Albury on their awards, adding the company is “very proud” to have the pair included as part of the business.
