Awards recognise the true spirit of entrepreneurship

WA Business News 40under40 winner Steven Goh is one of 28 nominees chosen for the Entrepreneur of the Year (EoY) awards.

Founded by Ernst & Young, the regional, national and international program recognises the outstanding achievements of entrepreneurs.

The winner of the 2001 Australian Entrepreneur of the Year award, ResMed president and chief executive officer Dr Peter Farrell, will compete in the international awards in Monte Carlo this month.

The awards program is not just about celebrating the achievements of entrepreneurs, it also provides nominees with vital networking opportunities with sponsors, judges and colleagues.

The media profile of the event also provides nominees with a unique public relations platform to publicise their business and themselves.

The nominees from WA include a number of high-profile business people, including Austal chairman John Rothwell, Sealanes joint managing directors Victor and Sam Paino and Commtech Wireless managing director Nathan Buzza.

Another nominee, New Norcia Bakeries director Kingsley Sullivan, said the awards presented a very exciting opportunity for the company.

“It’s recognition of where we’ve been able to take the business,” Mr Kingsley said.

“We were trying to establish a world-class bakery and, as a consequence, we’ve always benchmarked ourselves against the world’s best.”

The full list of nominees is: Australian Heritage Group executive chairman Tony Barton; Silver Chain Nursing Association chief executive Ross Bradshaw; Commtech Wireless managing director Nathan Buzza; founder and co-chief executive officers Clay Cooke and Rachel O’Brien; Thundelarra Exploration chairman Phil Crabb; Hire Intelligence International chairman Tom Crage; ENJO managing director Barb di Corti; Complete Scaffolding managing director Emanual Dillon; Ox Concert founder Dr Eric Tan; Paraplegic / Quadraplegic Association of WA Executive director Nigel Glass; Sandord chief executive officer Steven Goh; Homeloans joint managing directors Tim Holmes and Rob Salmon; Kerman Contracting managing director Brian Kerman; New Tel chief executive officer Peter Malone; BMS Solutions managing director Angela McQuillan; The Australian Medical Procedures Research Foundation director Dr George O’Neil; Sealanes joint managing directors Victor and Sam Paino; Scott Park Homes managing director Scott Park; Gull Petroleum chairman Fred Rae; Austal chairman John Rothwell; Broad Constructions Services managing director Kari Runnikainen; Snowden Mining Industry Consultants managing director and director Phil and Viv Snowden; New Norcia Bakeries directors Kingsley Sullivan and Mark Young; Plan B chief executive officer Bryan Taylor; Lasata Software director Steve Wall and Tony Farrell; Westral Home Improvements managing director Albert Walmsley; Doric Group managing director Harry Xydas; and National 1 managing director Warren Arbuckle.
