Following on from the regional awards in October 2015, the Westpac Auckland Business ‘Best of the Best’ Awards were announced in the elegant surroundings of the Langham Hotel in Central Auckland on March 23rd.
The awards recognise businesses from across Auckland North, South, West and Central, which excel in key areas like exporting, marketing and business leadership among others. While some pretty wild weather raged on outside, the atmosphere inside was just as intense in the lead up to the announcement of the winners in each category. Being in a category towards the end of the night, the wait was well worth it with Flintfox taking out the ‘Best of the Best – Excellence in Exporting’ award.
When accepting the award on behalf of the company, Flintfox CEO Mike Ridgway said “This is a truly excellent result for the team. As a representative of New Zealand in global markets, we’re proud to show the world an example of what our country can produce and that we can compete with some of the biggest companies in the world. ”
Auckland Chamber of Commerce CEO Michael Barnett says “We know that success in business doesn’t just happen. You create success by having good people, good ideas, great vision, solid planning and by taking calculated risks. We applaud the success these Auckland companies have achieved - we can all learn from them.”
This recognition has come at a time when Flintfox is exceeding all expectations in terms of growth, it is a great reward for a thriving New Zealand company.
