In October the I.T. team entered the running for the Deloitte Rising Star award, part of the Deloitte Fast 50 recognising New Zealand’s fastest growing companies. This is judged based on the speed of growth of the business, future growth forecasts, and capabilities to achieve forecasted success.
We were incredibly excited to win the Rising Star category for our region, recognising the hard work being put in by our team and the success this has fuelled! Winning our regional category allowed us to progress through to the National Finals, and while we didn’t take out the top spot on the night, being placed in the top 5 Rising Stars in the country is still a fantastic achievement!
Leading on from this great news, we then received a placing on the 2014 Deloitte Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific Index. This index ranks the top 500 tech businesses, basing these rankings on the previous three years’ revenue growth. We were placed at the very I.T. appropriate 256th, along with another 50 Kiwi companies who also made the index.
In 2015, we will be setting our sights on the Deloitte Fast 50 Index, having missed out previously coming in just under the three year minimum age requirement to enter. Watch this space for updates, as we aim to keep the momentum going and continue supporting businesses throughout Christchurch and across the country!
