The Godfather


In 2020 RUSH introduced a way to honour our 'Godfather', early RUSH angel investor and former Board Chairman, the late Dr Ray Thomson. He was someone who grasped every opportunity, was determined in the pursuit of success, and was also a humble, authentic and charismatic individual.

Presented at our annual mid-winter celebration, The Godfather Award is presented to the RUSH Person of the Year, recognising excellence, team work, innovation, leadership, humility, and sustained performance.

The recipient of this year's award has worked at RUSH for almost two years, in which time she has transformed our marketing function. She is a big picture thinker with exceptional ideas but she also knows how to get things done. 

CEO Brady Cox noted her dedication and commitment to RUSH, and her infectious passion for seeing us succeed and deliver on our promise to design and build technology to better serve humankind. She lives and breathes RUSH’s values, being a role model to others, pushing herself and others to always be better, and approaches her work and people around her with care and consideration. 

Congratulations to the 2022 Godfather Award winner, Alaina Luxmoore!
