Congratulations are in order for Classic Holidays’ CEO Ramy Filo who has been awarded the most prestigious honour in the Australian timeshare industry.
Ramy Filo was inducted into the Australian Timeshare and Holiday Ownership Council (ATHOC) Hall of Fame at a special ceremony recently.
His peers selected Mr Filo for the top honour, as a result of his many achievements over the last 15 years.
Qualified engineer Ramy started out as CEO of Classic Holidays in 1999, before serving as president of ATHOC for seven years. He is now the current vice presient, as well as the peer-appointed chairman of the Global Alliance of Timeshare Excellence (GATE) – a position he has held since 2006.
Mr Filo said: “I’m honoured to be inducted into the ATHOC Hall of Fame”.
“The Australian timeshare industry has so much to offer and I’m proud to have played a part in its tremendous growth over the past two decades”.
“I have no doubt we’ll continue the forward momentum, through innovative ideas and the dedication to make them happen, with many exciting plans in place at Classic Holidays and our entire group of companies for the near future.”
Classic Holidays’ chief operating officer, Carole Smith, added: “Ramy is a true leader of the timeshare movement, and deserves every honour for his years of dedicated service to improving the industry from the ground up.
“He has always led from the front, never afraid to step into unknown territory, and ultimately creating higher standards across the entire industry – not just here in Australia, but worldwide.”
During his time as President of ATHOC, Mr Filo instigated the first economic impact study into the benefits of timeshare, and also played an instrumental role in the establishment of the ATHOC Foundation.
