Twenty-six were named after a stringent judging process and the final winners were announced at prestigious ceremony held in Brisbane. AIM Chief Executive Officer Vivienne Anthon said the Management Excellence Awards were the most prestigious of their kind in the state.

“The finalists, and indeed the winners, are at the pinnacle of their profession – these people are deserving winners and the best of the best,” Ms Anthon said. “Once again the level of professionalism across the Queensland management community was extremely high which is testament to the state’s productivity.”

More than 400 people attended the event and Ms Anthon said AIM was committed to supporting managers across Queensland and upholding the profession of management.
