Brightest and Best Business Winners Announced


The winners of the Brightest and Best Business Awards were announced at a stellar gala dinner on Monday night at Easts Leagues Club.

Waverley Council’s Brightest and Best Business Awards recognise, promote and reward the contribution by local businesses towards making Waverley a dynamic and economically vital place to live, work and shop.

The Awards, now in their 12th year, are open to all businesses operating in the Waverley Local Government Area – large and small, retail and non-retail, village or home based.

Mayor of Waverley John Wakefield said the finalists were leaders in their field, creative, innovative, and delivered excellent customer service.

“In Waverley we have an exceptional business talent pool so it’s no surprise we received 167 entries.

“Through this Award we recognise the importance of a sustainable business community that is vibrant, robust and supports the creation of jobs and business opportunities.

“Winning this award is great way to celebrate their efforts and receive some fantastic recognition and publicity.

“Congratulations to all of this year's nominees, highly commended and award winners.”

Waverley Council would like to thank the following sponsors for their support of the event – Wentworth Courier, Quest Bondi Junction, the Bondi and Districts Chamber of Commerce, Realise Business and Easts Group/Sydney Roosters.
