New Zealand Export Credit Office wins export support award

New Zealand Export Credit Office wins export support award


The Treasury’s New Zealand Export Credit Office (NZECO) was recognised for excellence in export support at the 2016 AUT Business School Excellence in Business Support Awards.

NZECO won the International Business Export Support category at the Awards, which were celebrated with a gala dinner at the Langham Hotel, Auckland on 5 October, attended by more than 600 business leaders and members of the business community.

NZECO’s operations were measured against a range of criteria which include leadership, strategic planning, workforce and customer focus, and processes for continuous assessment and improvement.

“We’ve worked really hard to listen to our market, and to improve our solutions and processes in support of exporting businesses. It is really satisfying when someone runs the ruler over your operations and confirms that you are the right track,” said Chris Chapman, Head of NZECO.

The Awards are the only national performance measure for New Zealand organisations that provide business support. Applications are judged by evaluators from the AUT Business School with oversight from the New Zealand Business Excellence Foundation.

“AUT Business School takes great pride in these Awards which allow us to recognise and celebrate the best providers of business support in New Zealand. Without business support organisations and individuals, the performance of businesses here would be greatly affected and it’s important that we acknowledge the very important work that they do. From sales and marketing, and helping behind the scenes with everything from compliance and logistics to administration and maintenance, these businesses help keep our New Zealand industries running effectively and efficiently,” said Professor Geoff Perry, Dean of the AUT Faculty of Business, Economics and Law.
