YESTERDAY Riversun director Geoff Thorpe received his award at an investiture ceremony at Government House in Wellington. When told of the honour in late December, Mr Thorpe said he was hugely gobsmacked and honoured.

It was being recognised by his peers, the people in the industry and out in the community that staggered him the most. He acknowledged his extended family and everyone who works at Riversun.

“The seasonal workers — I am nothing without you turning up at 5 in the morning and doing the mahi. It is a total team effort.”
