Revealed: Winners from TIKS 10th Birthday Celebrations

TIKS honoured the service and dedication of its team at the inaugural TIKS Picks Awards at the company's 10th birthday bash on Saturday, 5 June, 2021.


The gratitudes are designed around TIKS core values and were chosen by the staff to recognise the respect, appreciation and contributions of each other. Sam Marciano, CEO and Founder, put it perfectly when he applauded the group's force:

“The long hours, the challenges but most importantly the growth I have seen in every one of you is incredible. TIKS couldn’t have done this without such a strong team and I thank you all.”
