Sydney’s Tricia Murtagh was presented with the prestigious VERTO Service Star (Apprenticeships) award for 2022.

Ms Murtagh was selected from more than 200 staff across 40 VERTO sites (NSW, ACT and Victoria) in recognition of the hard work and commitment she has demonstrated in the apprenticeship services space over the past 12 months.

VERTO Chief Executive Officer, Ron Maxwell, described Ms Murtagh as a valuable member of the VERTO team who has worked hard to achieve outstanding results for the organisation.

“Tricia demonstrates VERTO’s Guiding Principles on a daily basis and is well respected by her peers and colleagues. She thoroughly deserves to be recognised with the Service Star (Apprenticeships) award,” Mr Maxwell said.
