Deloitte Fast 50 regional winners announced

National Fast 50 index to be unveiled 4 November

The regional category winners of the 2015 Deloitte Fast 50 were announced tonight at cocktail events held around the country.

The national Deloitte Fast 50 index and national category winners will be unveiled as part of the Deloitte Festival of Fast Growth, to be held in Auckland on 4 November 2015.

Deloitte Private partner Bill Hale says these companies prove business success stories are thriving throughout the regions.

“These companies live and breathe innovation, challenge the status quo and have the determination and drive that’s seen them achieve phenomenal year-on-year growth,” says Mr Hale.

“A common theme behind their success is the ability to identify and then capitalise on a point of difference from their competitors. They do a specific thing very well and they really try and nail that niche.”

“A thriving community of fast growing innovative companies is fundamentally important to our economy,” he adds.
