Local unsung North Queensland community pharmacy hero recognised in national Online Retail Industry Association Awards

Georgia Twomey Managing Director

Georgina Twomey was recognised today as one of the top five national finalists in Australia Post’s Online Retail Industry Association Awards (ORIAS). The Cairns local and Managing Director of North Queensland’s Alive Pharmacy Warehouse Group competed against large national retailers across industries to be recognised for her work in making business possible and supporting local patients through Alive Pharmacies during what has been a tumultuous year.

The Unsung Hero award recognised how local pharmacist, Mrs. Twomey, and the Alive Pharmacy Warehouse team were able to use innovative thinking, inspiring resilience, and gut-busting hard work to service the North Queensland community in 2020.

Ms. Twomey said she was pleased that Alive Pharmacy Warehouse was able to place as a top five finalist against large national retailers who dominate the digital space, including Cue, Esther & Co, C&L Tool Centre, Payday Deals, Knobby Underwear and A1 Motorcycles.

“You have to be across all aspects of your business to really be innovative – from purchasing, marketing, human resources, change management, finances to strategy.”

“We’ve implemented our reinvigorated e-commerce and our medications management app this year to help our patients and customers no matter which channel they choose to shop through”.
