Entrepreneurial Hall of Fame

  • Share

21 years ago EY New Zealand recognised that this unique Award programme had particular relevance for New Zealand.  As a small country we punch way above our weight in many areas and one of these is entrepreneurial endeavour.

The success that the programme has achieved in New Zealand is an example of this. As an early adopter in the EY world - the programme has grown in profile each year and is now recognised as a leading business award in New Zealand, consistent with its global profile.

In October we saw the announcement of the 2017 EY Entrepreneur Of The Year – Peter Harris, CBL Corporation.

Peter joins an impressive roll call of New Zealand entrepreneurs as you will see from our Hall of Fame below.
