Elley Maree Hudson
Commercial Property Manager
Suburb: Townsville City.
AKA: Just Elley.
I’m renowned for: Being brutally honest and simply just getting things done! My friends say, I’m a bulldozer with a soft heart.
Only a local would know… that free wine at ‘ladies night’ on a Friday at the Australian Hotel is no longer a thing!
My most memorable holiday was… snowboarding fresh powder for months on end in Hakuba, Japan! I had no responsibilities and it was the first time I got to experience travelling overseas – take me back!
Right now I wish I was… joy riding in a helicopter over the Swiss Alps!
My favourite day is: Any day when I feel like I have achieved something and made a difference.
The biggest influence in my life is… my mum. We weren’t allowed to play until our chores were done to her standard. She definitely taught me the value of doing things right the first time and doing them to a high standard.
The funniest thing that ever happened to me was…once I was leaving a Gala Dinner when I noticed a very drunk girl almost passed out in the toilets. I got her to jump in to the car with us so we could get her home safely. Not even five minutes into the drive she vomited all over the limousine and my nice formal dress!
Someone famous I met was: Hamish Blake and Ryan Sheldon – I got caught up in their snowball fight.
My motto is: If you can’t clean the house right, how can you expect to run a Fortune 500 company right?
