Interval International announced that Joe Hickman, executive director for Asia Pacific, was recognised with the award for Outstanding Contribution to the Timeshare Industry by ATHOC (the Australian Timeshare and Holiday Ownership Council). The presentation took place at its 20th annual National Industry Awards ceremony held in the resort town of Surfers Paradise.
The award acknowledges Hickman’s 30-years of experience in all aspects of shared ownership, his numerous contributions to industry growth in the region, and his tireless efforts to educate new entrants, media, and government bodies about the industry.
Hickman is an ATHOC board member and has also served and continues to serve on a variety of industry boards in the region, including the timeshare associations of Thailand and Singapore, the Malaysian Timeshare Federation, Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA), and a number of other trade-related bodies.
Interval International will be a key sponsor of the upcoming annual ATHOC Conference that will be held from 11-13 September at the Watermark Hotel in Surfers Paradise.
