Property Council of Australia Queensland Division Executive Director, Chris Mountford said "the Award was established to pay tribute to the contribution Peter Trathen made to the property industry and Gold Coast business community." Peter moved to the Coast in 1993 from his native South-Africa, working for Jupiters to develop the Brisbane Casino.

In 2000, he took the lead role in the development of the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre. Peter Trathen was a strong advocate of education and continuing professional development.
