Being a finalist in two categories of the recent Westpac West Auckland Business Awards has rounded out a spectacular 18 months for The Trusts.
Western Gas Ltd was the big winner with three Awards: The Westpac Supreme Business Excellence Award, the UHY Haines Norton Best Medium Large Business Award and the Alloy Yachts Employer of Choice Award. The Riverhead (tavern) was the other multi-award winner. Its transformation into a destination was recognised with The Telecom Business Hub’s Best Emerging Business Award and the West Auckland Business Club and Rosebank Business Association’s Excellence in Strategy and Planning Award.
The other Awards went to: Magsons Hardware (North Western Toyota’s Excellence in Customer Management), Debtworks (Douglas Pharmaceuticals’ Excellence in Leadership), AllTech (NZ) Ltd (Unitec’s Excellence in Research and Development), Outdure (CanAm Group’s Excellence in Innovation), Thomas Civil & Environmental (The Pallet Company’s Excellence in Social Responsibility and Sustainability), World Moving and Storage (Babich Wines’ Excellence in Exporting) and Keola Homes (Corban Revell Lawyers’ Small Business of the Year).
The Trusts congratulates all the winners and was proud to be a finalist in the Excellence in Social Responsibility and the Employer of Choice categories. These add to last year’s Kenexa Best Workplaces Most Improved Large Business Award and this year’s Dale Carnegie Leadership Award. The Trusts also is a sponsor of the event (but not a category sponsor).
Showcasing the best of West Auckland business, the Awards highlight the large and ever growing breadth of top-class businesses in West Auckland. From an Awards that, 19 years ago, could be held in a restaurant, the big night now occupies virtually the whole main floor of The Trusts Arena with upwards of 500 guests and over 100 entrants.
