Finalists Announced for the ExportNZ ASB Wellington Export Awards 2024

Wellington, New Zealand  

ExportNZ is proud to announce the finalists for this year’s ExportNZ ASB Wellington Export Awards.  

“This is the only dedicated Export Awards in the Central North Island stretching from Whanganui to the Wellington Region” says Aaron McLeigh, ExportNZ Senior Relationship Manager for Wellington. “Our exporters are the heroes of our nation’s economy, and the ExportNZ ASB Wellington Export Awards are all about hearing the stories of these remarkable finalists. Their dedication and resilience have not only strengthened Aotearoa New Zealand’s reputation beyond its borders but have also fuelled our growth and prosperity.” 

The Export Awards are judged by a panel of experienced exporting specialists drawn from ExportNZ, NZTE and ASB with combined exporting experience of over 80 years!  

McLeigh noted “The judges have been full of praise for the finalists they have interviewed, noting their tenacity and resilience in facing challenges head-on—supply chain disruptions, market fluctuations, and global uncertainties—yet they’ve adapted, innovated, and persevered. Each finalist represents a story of determination and success, and we can’t wait to celebrate them all and crown the Exporter of the Year at the awards dinner at the Parliament in June.”
