The Team at NZHM do it again! Westpac Excellence in Trade Award winners
Announcement from Scott Johnson, Group CEO, GO Healthy
Dear all, it is my pleasure to announce that Minesh and the NZHM have done it again, winning the ‘Excellence in International Trade’ award at the Westpac Auckland South Business Awards. A representative team of 8 NZHM/GO Healthy members went along to the awards last night and came away with the trophy you see Minesh holding in the photo below, after what I have been told was a fantastic acceptance speech acknowledging the NZHM team, who made it happen. This is fantastic recognition of the hard work that Minesh and the NZHM have put into growing the business over the last 3 years.
It was also a great opportunity to benchmark ourselves against other businesses across a diverse range of industry sectors and get feedback from an expert panel of judges, so that we can continue to finetune our strategy for the future and continue our ethos of constant improvement. For the time being though, lets enjoy the moment.
Please find below an excerpt from the write up about the awards to give you more of a flavour as to what they are all about. You may recognise one of the names from Westpac. (Greg’s brother).
Once again congratulations all.
Auckland Chamber of Commerce CEO Michael Barnett says the winners represent the diversity of Auckland’s economy in size, management style and commitment to business excellence.
“These awards are all about celebrating businesses in our community that are making a difference. These are the employers, producers and leaders for today and tomorrow – who make Auckland the thriving centre it is.”
Auckland Council’s economic growth agency – Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development (ATEED) – partners with Auckland Chamber of Commerce to present the awards.
ATEED’s Chief Executive Nick Hill congratulates those businesses recognised for standing out in their chosen fields.
“These companies are playing a key role in stimulating Auckland’s culture of innovation and entrepreneurship, which is driving long-term economic growth. Tonight’s winners have achieved excellence across a diverse range of sectors, and are role models for other businesses on their growth journey,” says Hill.
Jeff Driscoll, Westpac Regional Commercial Manager, Auckland, says the Westpac Business Excellence Awards are about taking time out to recognise the smartest, savviest and strongest businesses in the Auckland community.
“It’s been fantastic to see the high calibre of entries this year. Auckland is the biggest cog in New Zealand’s economy and fundamentally important to our global success.”
