2017 Richard Davis Award Announced!

About the Award!

The Richard Davis Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Peak National Body was introduced last year in dedication to the late Richard Davis. His continuous industry-wide service and determination towards establishing accreditation in the caravan park industry created the legacy of a program that now constitutes a key pillar of Caravan Industry Association of Australia.

Congratulations to the 2017 Recipient of the Richard Davis Award – Gerry Ryan!

Gerry is the founder of Jayco Corporation (Australia).

The industry recognises Gerry’s great entrepreneurial mind and selfless generosity, provided both financially and via guidance to both CRVA and the RVMAA, and his continued involvement with Caravan Industry Association of Australia.  Without such commitment to developing the industry through support of the national representative bodies, both industry and what is now Caravan Industry Association of Australia would look very different to what they do today.

Although Gerry could not be present to accept the award in person, he said via video message, “It’s a great honour to receive an award named after Richard Davis.  I worked with him many years ago and he taught me there’s more fun in giving than receiving”.  Gerry raised a toast to everyone working in the industry.
