What a great time we had at the 2017 Birdsville Big Red Bash from the 4th till the 6th of July! There were three days of great music and family-friendly fun in the red centre. This year’s lineup saw big names such as Missy Higgins and Lee Kernaghan entertaining the huge crowd. Some of the PRO Management team headed out to the Birdsville Caravan Park to assist with the influx of guests. Thanks to the team for pitching in and lending a hand! Great work!
With the expansion of PRO Management over the last couple of years with the addition of new properties to our portfolio (we are currently sitting at 19 properties), we now have parks and campgrounds located from north to western Queensland, south coast and central NSW and also a property in Victoria – with a lot of kilometres in between. With the departure of Mick and Karen, PRO Management have split the management liaison role into two geographical areas into Queensland (taking in Narrabri) and NSW (taking in Horsham, VIC). This means we had two roles to fill. The distance between the parks is becoming too great for one entity to adequately cover.
With this in mind we have taken on additional people to cover the larger spread of properties. In NSW we have Richard Lykke based just outside Batemans Bay on the south coast New South Wales. Richard completed one of our courses in November 2015 and has been working on the coal face with us at the Eurobodalla Shire Campgrounds and also BIG4 Batemans Bay Beach Resort. Richard brings a host of management experience with him and good humour too. Richard commenced his position in March 2017.
In Queensland, we have Cameron and Louise Sterling. Cameron and Louise, although relatively new to the caravan park industry completed a course with us early 2016 and have been working at BIG4 Toowoomba since then. Working together as a couple, Cameron and Louise also have a solid management background and will be a great asset for PRO Management and for the parks, councils and owners we work with. Cameron and Louise commenced in their roles at the beginning of June 2017.
Richard, Cameron and Louise will spend more time within the parks and will work closely with the park managers and staff involved in daily operations. This includes handling any issues that might arise.
PRO Management and the admin team are excited to welcome Cameron, Louise and Richard to the PRO family and look forward to working with them in their roles.
PRO Management would like to say welcome to Lake Wivenhoe and Lake Somerset campgrounds! As of the 29th of March 2017, the campgrounds became the latest addition to PRO Management’s Queensland portfolio. Located approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes north-west of Brisbane, the campgrounds are extremely popular recreation spots for holiday makers, families and travelers. PRO Management will be working closely with Seq Water to provide the highest quality customer service to the campground visitors. The addition of the two campgrounds brings PRO Management’s portfolio of properties to 18 including 13 parks and 5 campgrounds!
PRO Management is pleased to announce that the Eurobodalla Shire Council has decided to extend the management contract for Dalmeny, Mystery Bay and North Head Campgrounds. The contract with PRO Management was due for review following its first three years of tenure and the Council are willing to extend the contract for another two years. This is great news for all involved. PRO Management has thoroughly enjoyed its time working with the Council and look forward to the next two years!
On the 24th of January 2017, PRO Management celebrated its 10th birthday! As we celebrate 10 years of PRO, we take the time to look back on the years of challenges, growth, laughter and great friendships. Thank you to each and every person who has been a part of the journey and who has helped to make PRO Management what it is today. To our awesome management teams in the parks and campgrounds, as well as our training and administration team – thank you for your dedication and passion for the work you do. All the thanks in the world also goes to our director Darren Beck. Darren is the life and soul of the company, and today we say thank you for his endless energy, guidance and expertise. Keep a close eye on our website and social pipes, because 2017 is going to be an exciting year!
