Waverley Council announces finalists of the Brightest & Best Business Awards 2022

24 October 2022

Mayor of Waverley, Paula Masselos, has congratulated the finalists of Waverley Council’s Brightest & Best Business Awards 2022.

The Brightest & Best awards bring together our local business community to recognise their contribution towards making our community a dynamic place to live, work and shop. The awards are open to all businesses large or small that operate across Waverley, with all entries to be assessed against their industry peers.

“The Waverley economy is driven by our local businesses who contribute to our thriving community by providing employment opportunities and the goods and services that make Waverley a great place to live and do business,” Mayor Masselos said.

“These businesses have had to weather the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and we are proud to help celebrate their resilience and community spirit.

“As a small business owner myself, I appreciate the effort that our finalists have invested in their business, and in their people, in order to succeed and build customer loyalty in this challenging economy.

“To that end, I would like to congratulate all our finalists, and everyone who supported this award by nominating, and to all businesses nominated. I also wish to thank our Brightest & Best Business Awards major sponsors Bondi & Districts Chamber of Commerce and Milkrun, and other generous sponsors Bondi Golf & Diggers Club, Eastside 89.7 FM, Stephen Evans, Sunsational Sunscreen, Sydney Roosters, The Blu Hotel, Richardson & Wrench Bondi Beach, The Beast Magazine, Wotso, Body Sculpting Clinics and GO Circular.
