Finalists named in Auckland North business awards

Eighteen local businesses are in award contention in this year’s Westpac Auckland North Business Awards, after finalists were announced last night.

More than 200 local business people celebrated the occasion and marked the 16th year of the programme, at a special Finalist Celebration held at the Bruce Mason Centre.

The finalists include a broad mix of businesses stretching from Omaha to Birkenhead and incorporating companies from marine, IT, health, and food industries.

Mayor Len Brown was impressed with the strong showing of service sector and export businesses amongst the finalists.

“Auckland Council recently released its fourth Auckland Economic Quarterly report, and it was the most optimistic yet. The Auckland economy is showing signs of a sustained and broad based recovery,” says Len Brown.

“Exports are vital to continue that economic growth. It’s fantastic to see so many strong local businesses competing here and internationally.”

The awards attracted almost 90 entries across eight categories in a revitalised format and a judging system based on an internationally recognised criteria.

ATEED’s Chief Executive Brett O’Riley believes the annual awards are an important growth programme for Auckland.

“Businesses looking for long term growth and sustainability should regularly review their performance and look for opportunities to improve. ATEED’s business awards are designed to help businesses reflect, assess their position, build their capability and celebrate their successes. Congratulations to all the finalists,” says Mr O’Riley.

Brian Henderson, Area Manager, Business Banking North West, Westpac New Zealand Limited, is impressed with the calibre of finalists.

“These awards are a pinnacle in the North Auckland business community, which is why Westpac is proud to be a supporter of the awards here, and in other areas around the country,” says Brian Henderson,

“This year’s finalists are a reflection of this outstanding local business hub, and we’re looking forward to unveiling the winners later this year.”

Winners will be announced at a black-tie gala dinner on Thursday, 26 September 2013. Tickets are available at BusinessAucklandNZ.com/Awards.
