2014 Business Excellence Awards

The Ballina Shire Northern Star Business Excellence program is designed to recognise and reward excellence in business, foster innovation and encourage a focus on sustainability, corporate citizenship and safe work practices.

It is therefore with pride that we celebrate Collins Hume being named the 2014 Professional Services business excellence winner.

The awards provide an annual opportunity for local business owners to review their systems and undertake operational improvements.

Multi-award winners Collins Hume were Professional Services category award winners in 2012 and finalists in 2011 and 2013. They are also a member of the Ballina Chamber of Commerce.

The firm has a reputation for building partnerships and guiding strategy.

Upon accepting the award on behalf of Collins Hume, Partner Ian Wunsch said, "We are extremely honoured to again receive this prestigious award, especially in light of all the outstanding Professional Services Businesses in Ballina and surrounds."

"I would like to thank the fantastic team we have at Collins Hume.  It takes a team effort to win an award such as this."

Leading up to the Gala Awards ceremony, Ballina Chamber reported an overwhelming number of submissions for evaluation.

"We have so many outstanding businesses in our shire who are really kicking goals in their industries! We're so excited to showcase the shining stars of our local business community. With 17 different award categories it was a wonderful night of celebration and networking with the local business community at the Ballina RSL Club." 

"We received a wonderful, positive response from local businesses who entered the awards. It's so refreshing to hear how local businesses are excelling in their industries!" 

Collins Hume would also like to thank all the sponsors for supporting the Ballina Business Awards, without whose support local business events such as this wouldn't exist and we wouldn't get to see the showcase of wonderful local businesses.

Ian Wunsch, Tony Wang, Melinda Thomas and Sumant Datta accept the award for Collins Hume from sponsor Ballina Concrete Pumping (centre).
