Dalby Business Excellence Award Winners
2019 Dalby Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards
Carrick Aland were revealed as one of the winners at the 23rd Dalby Business Excellence Awards, announced at the ‘Diamonds & Dust’ gala event at the Dalby Events Centre on the weekend.
As the longest-running Business Excellence Awards in Southern Queensland, the Dalby Business Excellence Awards are a key initiative of the Dalby Chamber of Commerce and Industry recognising the achievements and contributions of local businesses.
Being one of Dalby’s award-winning businesses sets the bar high for the Carrick Aland Group. The firm recently received two Heritage Bank Business & Professional awards from the Toowoomba Chamber of Commerce.
In May, Carrick Aland’s specialist self-managed superannuation business, Intuitive Super, was nationally named SMSF Firm of the Year.
A 66-year history in Dalby lends understanding on how best to support business and rural clients.
“Having been involved in Dalby’s Small Business Awards over the years, it is exciting to see the impetus grow each year to provide recognition to those of us striving for excellence and acknowledging business achievement,” said Carrick Aland Partner Greg Burton.
“First and foremost we want to say thanks to our whole team as well as our clients in Dalby and the Western Downs – we couldn’t have done it without you!”
“It is certainly a privilege and an honour to be recognised at such a high level in the professional sector,” said QAS Director David Johnston.
“To stand out amongst such esteemed peers we place utmost importance in investing in our staff and technology, and making sure we’re relevant as far as finding out what our clients want, challenging the norm and having pertinent conversations.”
“We also thank the Dalby Chamber and our Category Sponsors, Easternwell, for their valuable support and for making this amazing business event possible”.
A business excellence award is a highly coveted prize.
Previous winners have received recognition, both locally and beyond. Not only does Dalby’s business awards program provide an opportunity to formally recognise excellence; winners have also found that receiving recognition boosts their company profile, motivates staff and improves business.
To celebrate the 23rd anniversary of these prestigious awards, Dalby Chamber opened People’s Choice and Judges’ Choice awards across 12 industry categories that presented an opportunity to showcase each business. The Judges’ Choice process included a formal application followed by judges’ onsite visits to ensure Best Business selection was based on performance at interview as well as on paper.
