Media Release

2017 Deloitte Fast 50 regional winners announced

National Fast 50 index to be unveiled 9 November

The 2017 Deloitte Fast 50 regional category winners, regional Rising Stars and regional Master of Growth (a new category this year) were announced last night at cocktail events held around the country.

The national Deloitte Fast 50 index, national category winners, national Rising Star winner and national Master of Growth winner will be unveiled as part of the Deloitte Festival of Fast Growth, to be held in Auckland on 9 November 2017.

Deloitte Private partner Bill Hale says this year’s regional winners showcase business success throughout the country.

“These results clearly demonstrate that there are a diverse range of businesses across New Zealand that are achieving outstanding growth. It is great to see these companies thriving by capitalising on their points of difference and executing on their plans. A common theme is that they are all strong across strategy, capability and commitment, but focus on finding a point of difference and nailing it in that niche,” says Mr Hale.

These companies have earned the right to join other high growth companies from around the country at the annual Deloitte Festival of Fast Growth in November. The Festival is a full-day event where Fast 50 companies will hear from inspirational speakers, network with other winners past and present, interact with industry experts and celebrate their success.

“Tune in on 9 November to find out how the regional category winners will place on the national 2017 Deloitte Fast 50 index,” concludes Mr Hale.
