Judges awarded almost perfect scores to the company that won the supreme honour at the fourth Westpac Gisborne Business Excellence Awards last night.

Civil Project Solutions was presented the Supreme Business of the Year award before a sell-out crowd of more than 340 guests at the Showgrounds Park Event Centre.

CPS also won the Professional and Service award in the Business Excellence category.

Judging panel chairman Neil Smoker, said CPS was a company that had developed in leaps and bounds to become one of the fastest-growing local businesses. Its growth was driven by clear vision and strategy.

Judges noted the company’s excellent management had leveraged the power of relationships to ensure consistency of high value projects.

“Civil Projects has been an early adopter of technology and is a company with a clear passion for client service, quality and excellent management, which has allowed it to scale quickly and sustainably.

“The exponential growth experienced in recent years has seen it take every opportunity to apply best practice to manage its business and given it a solid platform to continue in the future.”

Judges visited CPS and were impressed with the company’s projects, along with the quality of its work and relationships in the community.

The award was a testament to the depth of talent in Tairawhiti, said CPS project manager Russell Moylan.

“Our team are incredibly hard working, capable and loyal, as are the local contractors and subcontractors we work with every day.

“We are grateful to our clients who continue to put their trust in us to deliver their projects.”

Judges were particularly impressed with some of the efforts local businesses were investing in the health and wellbeing of staff. They also noted how tangible the passion was across the board.

They were proud to see the innovation coming through from so many.

Mr Smoker praised entrants, saying how rewarding it was to be part of the process with such a diverse group of judges.

Westpac NZ commercial, corporate and institutional banking general manager Karen Silk said the awards provided businesses with a chance to reflect on achievements and celebrate success.

“As an organisation that’s on a mission to help businesses grow, we couldn’t be more inspired by this year’s finalists. These are businesses who know where they want to go and have a plan to get there.”

Awards coordinator Prue Younger said the event was credit to the local community — from those who entered to those involved in judging.

Finalists will be invited to business workshops where they will be able to add to their growing skillsets.

The next awards are scheduled for 2020.
