Westpac New Zealand Limited

Westpac is proud to support the 2017 Westpac Northland Business Excellence Awards and continue our tradition of recognising the vital role business has to play in both the local and New Zealand economies.

Alongside NZ Chambers of Commerce Northland, we understand the importance of businesses across the Northland region, both big and small. It’s why we’re the major sponsors of 17 Regional Business Excellence Awards around the country.

Small business make up 97% of New Zealand’s enterprises, so there’s no underestimating how important the sector is in our economy.

At Westpac we’re all about growing Kiwi businesses and encouraging people to invest in their local areas. We believe businesses in Northland deserve to be recognised and rewarded for outstanding achievements.

It’s great to see the Awards give entrants an opportunity to have a renewed focus on their business – identifying the strengths and challenges and of course coming up with winning solutions.

All the best to those businesses entering the 2017 Westpac Northland Business Excellence Awards.
