Top Wellington Young Executives Announced

The New Zealand Institute of Management Central today announced the six finalists for the NZIM Regional Young Executive of the Year Award to be held tomorrow at The Wellington Club. Dr Don Brash MP will be guest speaker and presenter of the Awards.

The 2004 finalists are: Andrew Hampton, Ministry of Justice; Mike Lovell, Vidcom NZ; Shaun Johnson, Royal Airforce; Mike Lockyer, Techtonics Group; Aolele Su'a Aloese, Cook Islands Audit Office; and Matt Reid, Te Papa Tongarewa, Museum of New Zealand.

Ian Balfour, Chief Executive, NZIM Central said the calibre of the finalists is very high.

"We're seeing more and more young executives using their skills and bringing real value to their organisations," he said.

"It's great that these young achievers are being recognised by their co-workers and managers for their invaluable contributions and creativity. It's exactly what we need to be encouraging and NZIM are delighted the Award programme is still strongly supported after 10 years."

The Young Executive Award was established in 1994 and is seen by many as a passport to a successful career in senior management. It is awarded to men and women under 35 who have a proven track record of high performance, a strong management style, financial and strategic impact on their workplace, and who are prepared to embrace emerging technologies and practices and search out new opportunities.

The regional winner will progress to the national award presentation of the NZIM Young Executive of the Year Award to be held in Auckland on 28 November 2004 as part of the Deloitte/Management Top 200 Awards for 2004.

Past winner of the Central Region competition, Diane Knowles, Director of Learning and Development, EDS said the best thing about winning the NZIM Central Young Executive is that you are nominated by your peers.

"That in itself is a huge confidence booster - knowing that those you work with have complete belief in your ability," she said

"It's a great opportunity to sit back and reflect on what you have achieved and to reset your goals for where you are heading" said Ms Knowles.
