Every year Deloitte’s Festival of Fast Growth recognises the achievements of businesses throughout New Zealand in the Fast 50 index. We were absolutely thrilled to be included in the list this year as a highly commended Rising Star.
Fast 50 representative Darren Johnson said of the winners, “These companies live and breathe innovation, challenge the norm and have the determination and drive that’s seen them achieve phenomenal growth.” Our CEO Gareth Berry was obviously delighted. “It’s great to be recognised as a Rising Star company and the good news is our energy and drive feels as much a startup today as it was when we were bootstrapping in a small office in Albany. Our staff and culture are truly awesome, and with the team we now have we can set our sights on achieving our vision on a global scale.”
Congratulations to all of the regional winners, our Direct Sales Manager Jono Henning will certainly attest to the lure of Kiwiyo who won the Rising Star category for our region. The full list of winners is available here. It’s brilliant to be keeping such company.
Unleashed’s founder Greg Murphy was recently interviewed about our inception and he had these words of wisdom to share about starting a company. “Have a good idea, work your butt off, don’t do it for money, form relationships, align with like-minded companies, be open and listen to the market.” He says seeing Unleashed grow to its current size with a fantastic Takapuna office and a new Melbourne space coming soon is marvelous. Being featured in such a prestigious list is really great motivation to keep on growing and developing, watch this space.
