The finalists in the Deloitte Top 200 Awards for 2022 have once again showcased the best of New Zealand business and their commercial strength in a world that has reopened borders but is not yet back to business as usual.
“Our finalists have had time over the years to reevaluate what is most important to their organization. Delivering stakeholder value is still top of mind but viewed through a broader lens that also encompasses sustainability and climate, diversity and inclusion, business culture and employee well-being.
“They are also focused on the challenges of re-engaging the world and re-engaging people, and by remaining agile and committed to a long-term focus, our 2022 finalists have embraced these challenges and made it opportunities,” said Deloitte Chief Executive Mike Horne.
Fran O’Sullivan, New Zealand Media and Entertainment’s Head of Business Content, returns as judge convenor for the 33rd year of the awards.
“With the global economy at an inflexion point, real stability is required for business leaders and companies from various key sectors such as agribusiness, tourism and technology to post continued growth,” said by O’Sullivan.
“Fortunately for New Zealand, the individuals and companies nominated as finalists in 2022 are showing this in no uncertain terms.”
“This has been a more difficult year for many of our top firms as the economy and global conditions have worsened,” said judge Neil Paviour-Smith managing director of Forsyth Barr.
“However, there are still some great performances that stand out and are clear examples of how well the strategy is delivering results for these companies.”
Along with Fran O’Sullivan and Neil Paviour-Smith, this year’s judges also include Jonathan Mason, Ross George, Hinerangi Raumati-Tu’ua, Barbara Chapman, Rob Campbell, Liam Dann, Royal Reed, Simon Moutter, and Ranjna Patel.
