Abano Wins INFINZ Corporate Communications Award

Abano Wins INFINZ Corporate Communications Award

Abano Healthcare Group was announced as the winner of the Emerging Leaders Best Corporate Communicator Award, at the prestigious INFINZ Awards dinner in Auckland last night.

The Award was presented to Abano by Tim Bennett, CEO of the Award sponsor, NZX, who said: “The Judges noted that Abano has provided a clear and precise outline of its strategy.

“Its communications are jargon free, regular and helpful for retail investors. It is proactive in terms of communications with institutional shareholders, contacting them directly after any important announcement.”

Chief Operating Officer of Abano, Richard Keys, in accepting the Award on behalf of the Company, said: “At Abano, corporate communications is a key priority for us and it is driven from the top down.

“Our Chairman, Trevor Janes, and the Board are strong believers in good shareholder communications. The Managing Director, Alan Clarke, and our senior management team, are directly involved in the writing of all communications, and encourage dialogue with our investors. This also includes our annual investor roadshow, from Auckland to Invercargill, which we see as a great opportunity to tell our story as well as listen to feedback from our shareholders.

“We deliver on our promises and we never promise what we can’t deliver. We communicate clearly and honestly, and we don’t believe in spin. This approach has helped us build strong trust with our shareholders and the investment market.”

Jim McElwain, Executive Director of INFINZ (the Institute of Finance Professionals New Zealand Inc.) commented: “By highlighting the outstanding players in our industry, we hope to raise standards across the entire market place.

“Our focus is on those actions and individuals who have added most value to corporate New Zealand and hence the economy.”
