Finalists Announced For North Shore Business Award
Finalists Announced For North Shore Business Awards
Size doesn’t matter when it comes to business success, judging by the finalists in this year’s excellence awards.
Thirty-seven finalists from across the North Shore and Rodney were announced for the 2010 Westpac Enterprise North Shore Business Excellence Awards; delighting the sponsors with the diversity of the line up.
“Looking at the awards is like taking a snapshot of the wider business community,” says Terry Hoskins, CEO of Enterprise North Shore. “The fact that this year’s finalists represent such a wide ranging spread of businesses shows what a truly eclectic and unique business base we have in the area. We are very happy with the selection.”
“It is wonderful to see so many strong and resilient companies, both big and small, thrust into the spotlight, ready to recognise their own hard work and achievements,” says Ian Blair, Westpac General Manager for business banking. “As proud supporters of regional, national and local business, Westpac is thrilled to once again be associated with these prestigious awards.”
The 2010 Awards, now in their 13th year, attracted an incredible 144 entries from all corners of the North Shore and Rodney.
For the past six weeks a 13-strong panel of independent judges has faced the unenviable job of whittling down the entries to select this year’s finalists, and must deliberate to find the overall winners.
“We are down to the business end of the Awards, where we acknowledge and celebrate excellence, says Mr Hoskins. “This is the time to applaud not just individual success, but the achievements of the whole business community and to inspire and encourage future excellence.”
The winners of the 2010 Westpac Enterprise North Shore Business Excellence Awards will be announced at a gala dinner on Friday, 3 September 2010 at the North Shore Events Centre. Tickets are available from www.ens.org.nz/gala
