A new hall of fame

There are halls of fame for music, movies and sport and now there’s one for business!

The Wellington Region Business Hall of Fame will soon be welcoming its very first eight businesses which will be honoured at a gala dinner on Friday the 10th of July.  

This Hall of Fame has been created by the Hutt Valley Chamber of Commerce and Deloitte Private is very proud to be a principal sponsor.

Hutt Valley Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive Mark Futter says, “The aim of the Hall of Fame is to recognise and celebrate significant contributions by businesses to the economic and social fabric of our region.”

He mentioned that the companies being honoured were “fantastic examples of businesses that not only contribute to the regional economy but also to the overall health of their respective local communities.”

“These eight businesses showcase the diversity, dedication and resilience required to have a meaningful impact on the global villages in which we all live, work and play.”

Deloitte Private Partner Mark Lash added that it’s an honour to support an initiative such as this.  

“Celebrating business success is something that we consider to be very important and we don’t do enough of it as a country. The Hall of Fame initiative is a great way of recognising business excellence and success in the Wellington region.”
