Simply Group secures positions in Deloitte’s prestigious Fast50 Business Awards
Two Simply Group businesses have been named as finalists in Deloitte’s Fast50 2017 regional awards.
Simply Group’s private network utility solutions business Tenco was named as a finalist for the national 2017 Deloitte Fast50 index from the Christchurch and Upper South Island region for the second year running last night, bringing its national ranking in the 2016 index to number six.
Simply Group’s other subsidiary company Simply Energy was also awarded as finalist in the new Master of Growth category, following its placing in the Fast50 Index four consecutive years between 2010 to 2013.
Both these businesses are now entered into the nationwide Festival of Growth to be held in Auckland on 9 November where the overall New Zealand Fast50 index and Master of Growth will be announced.
Simply Group Commercial Director Murray Dyer says it is pleasing to see the company’s achievements recognised.
