Xero, Parrot Analytics named winners in Deloitte's regional Fast 50

29 Sep 2017

The 2017 Deloitte Fast 50 regional category winners, regional Rising Stars and regional Master of Growth (a new category this year) were announced last night.

The national Deloitte Fast 50 index, national category winners, national Rising Star winner and national Master of Growth winner will be unveiled as part of the Deloitte Festival of Fast Growth, to be held in Auckland on November 9.

Bill Hale, Deloitte Private partner, says this year’s regional winners showcase business success throughout the country.

“These results clearly demonstrate that there is a diverse range of businesses across New Zealand that are achieving outstanding growth.

"It is great to see these companies thriving by capitalising on their points of difference and executing on their plans," says Hale.

He adds that a common theme is that they are all strong across strategy, capability and commitment, but focus on finding a point of difference and nailing it in that niche.

These companies will join other high-growth companies from around the country at the annual Deloitte Festival of Fast Growth in November.

The Festival is a full-day event where Fast 50 companies will hear from inspirational speakers, network with other winners past and present, interact with industry experts and celebrate their success.

Among the list of regional winners are some of New Zealand’s innovative technology businesses such as Parrot Analytics, Spotlight Reporting, and Xero.
