One-year anniversary is celebrated in style

CAMERON Cooper recently celebrated his one-year anniversary at Coffs Harbour Toyota with a ride in Hyundai's luxury V6 Genesis.

The 27-year-old was born with spina bifida, sight in only one eye and has spent his life in a wheelchair. He has overcome a number of barriers in making his administration assistant position his own and adding value to the service team at Toyota/Hyundai.

Warren Skinner, dealer principal, is proud to have given Cameron his first-ever pay cheque.

"Cameron's a great lad who performs a very important and much appreciated role for us in managing our service invoices and making sure they're accurately stored when we get audited," Mr Skinner said.

Cameron's role has evolved since he started at Coffs Harbour Toyota and with Key Employment's assistance, a number of government-funded workplace modifications were made available to him.

"On the advice of an occupational therapist, we adapted Cameron's work station to better suit him in his wheelchair. The improvements not only make it more comfortable for him, but allow him to be more productive and efficient in his job," Key Employment's Ian Davie said.

For Cameron it's been a 12 months he's loved as much as his anniversary reward.

"It was fantastic to be taken out on the highway and travel in style and I'm happy to have that perk to my job which makes clearing the piles of invoices worthwhile," Cameron said of the celebratory ride.
