The First Amongst Equals winner was Northern Star Resources chief executive Bill Beament, who has overseen the group’s emergence as a significant Western Australian gold producer.

Barrick Gold’s Julie Shuttleworth, who last week was named WA’s Women in Resources Champion, was also a finalist. She was one of 11 women to win a 40under40 award this year.

Other finalists for the First Amongst Equals award were Bali bombing survivor Phil Britten, who has built a successful martial arts academy, and ToxFree Solutions chief executive Steve Gostlow, who has helped build a national waste management group.

As well as Northern Star and ToxFree, there was a good representation of listed companies, with Buru Energy’s Tom Streitberg and Pura Vida Energy’s Damon Neaves also winning.

Another winner who recently moved into the listed sector was PositionMEonline’s James Mawhinney. His company undertook a backdoor listing last November through Reeltime Media, and last month acquired Perth Website Designs.

Resource Development Group also had a winner in David Sourbutts, who is a director of its Engenium subsidiary.

The not-for-profit sector had 5 winners: Silver Chain Nursing Association’s Dan Minchin, St Patrick’s Community Support Centre’s Michael Piu, Anglicare’s Jethro Sercombe, and Telethon Institute’s Monique Robinson and Andrew Whitehouse.

The winners of the strategic partner awards were Tom Streitberg (for the City of Perth award) and management consultant Anna Dartnell of The Lonsdale Group (University of Western Australia award).

The most excited winner on the night was Aussie Orientation Services managing director Sue Pember, who won the People’s Choice award.
