ASB joins 2008 Export Awards

ASB joins Export New Zealand Hawke’s Bay for 2008 Export Awards

Export New Zealand Hawke’s Bay Region welcomes ASB as naming sponsor of the ASB Hawke’s Bay Export Awards. The awards celebrate and acknowledge Hawke’s Bay exporters and their successes as they export New Zealand goods around the globe.

“We’re delighted that ASB has joined us for the second year of the Awards,” said Bruce Robertson, Regional Manager for Export NZ Hawke’s Bay. “Their ongoing support of exporters dovetails nicely with Export New Zealand’s goals to help exporters grow their business in the international market.”

Hawke’s Bay is the newest Export NZ region and started the Export Awards just last year. Mr Robertson is looking forward to duplicating last year’s fun and successful event when more than 220 exporters, export service providers, friends and neighbours gathered to celebrate exporting excellence at the Hawke’s Bay Opera House.

Three awards for exporting excellence will be presented this year at a Gala Dinner at Hawke’s Bay Opera House in Hastings on 29 August with Masters of Ceremony Paul Holmes. They are:

- Hawke’s Bay Today Exporter of the Year
- Go Group NZ Limited Emerging Exporter of the Year
- Port of Napier Outstanding Service to the Hawke’s Bay Export Industry Award

As a full-service bank and financial services provider, ASB serves companies from the largest to the smallest. It provides advice and expertise for exporters from their first tentative steps to those who are long-time exporters. ASB has been backing New Zealanders and exporters for more than 160 years.

Entry to the awards is easy, but judging is rigorous. You don’t need to be a member of Export New Zealand to participate. To enter the awards contact Mr Robertson on 877 9530 or email or visit and click on the Hawke’s Bay region.
