The 2022 AmCham - DHL Express Success & Innovation Gala Awards event was staged tonight at the Pullman Hotel.

AmCham President Jonathan Mason commented “that after three years of disruption it was good to be back holding these awards in their original format, as well as being back at the Pullman Hotel”. He went on to say that the diversity and quality of the entries and finalists shows that New Zealand companies continue to be world leaders.

New Zealand’s goods trade with the USA has been growing at around 6% per annum over the last decade and we are seeing more technology and services companies doing business with the USA.

Minister Damien O’Conner was the keynote speaker and presented the three exporter awards.

Commenting on the 2022 AmCham-DHL Express Success & Innovation Awards, Mark Foy, Managing Director, New Zealand & Pacific Islands, DHL Express, who announced the supreme winner said: “Oritain Global has established itself as a leading innovator with their focus on continuous improvement a testament to their achievements. Oritain’s successful growth into the US market is a reflection of their market research and DHL congratulates them on this award.”

The judges’ comments were “that from humble beginnings in Dunedin, Oritain has become a world leader in its field. With most of its revenues being tied to the US, Oritain has done much to enhance the reputation of New Zealand as a trusted partner among many firms as well as with government agencies in the United States. The company impressed the judges with the uniqueness of their customer value proposition, the integrity of their brand and the trust it engenders, and the potential the firm has to become a household name as the industry benchmark for provenance in both the United States and more broadly”.
