It is our great pleasure to announce that Gruntify is the winner of the Emerging Exporter Award at the Premier of Queensland’s Export Awards 2016!
The Richard Joel Award for Emerging Exporter Award recognizes outstanding export achievement by an enterprise, in any industry, that has been exporting for less than three years. It is given in honour of the late Mr Richard Joel AM, formerly the Chief Executive Officer of the Brisbane City Office of Economic Development and a 2000 Centennial Medal recipient for services in promoting economic development in Brisbane.
Gruntify’s Founder Igor Stjepanovic says, “What an honour to take out the Emerging Exporter Award 2016. Massive thanks to our clients, partners and in particular to our staff. The best is yet to come!”
The awards ceremony was held last night, Thursday 20th October, at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. The Premier of Queensland’s Export Awards acknowledge the important contribution that Queensland exporting businesses make to the state’s economy through job creation and increased prosperity in the community. Gruntify was also a Finalist in the Small Business Award category. The full Queensland Government Media Statement can be found here.
