The George Town Chamber of Commerce 2022 Business Excellence Awards winners have been announced at a presentation held at the George Town Memorial Hall.
The Awards recognise and celebrate the amazing diversity of business within the George Town municipality and particularly those that have demonstrated resilience throughout the past 12 months.
“I was delighted to join our local businesses to celebrate how they have successfully adapted to a challenging operating environment over the past 12 months. Tasmania’s border opened in mid-December last year and many businesses were impacted almost immediately as a wave of COVID swept through our community,” said James Cameron, President, George Town Chamber of Commerce.
“The Chamber is delighted to be able to showcase the resilience and business excellence of our 2022 award winners tonight with the support of our major sponsors Bell Bay Aluminum and Liberty Bell Bay,” said Mr. Cameron.
Bell Bay Aluminium, Acting General Manager, Mark Gerrard said, “We work closely with hundreds of local businesses across Tasmania and one thing they all have in common is their commitment to provide local employment, products and services to the community and industries such as ours. It’s important that through this Awards program we support and encourage the next generation of business leaders and entrepreneurs in our region by recognizing and celebrating the resilience and sustainability of our local business community.”
LIBERTY Bell Bay General Manager, Richard Curtis said: ‘We are proud to once again sponsor the 2022 Business Excellence Awards which recognise the outstanding businesses that operate within our region. The winners of this year’s Awards demonstrate the diversity of those businesses that contribute to both the economic and social fabric of our vibrant community. The Awards also celebrate the courage and determination of those individuals who persevered through the hard times brought about by COVID-19 to emerge stronger than ever in their drive to provide excellence within their respective businesses. A wonderful achievement by all!’
