3 reasons to apply for the 2018 Executive of the Year Awards

The CEO Magazine’s annual awards night celebrates the individual achievements of Australia’s leading executives. Share your professional story with us today to be a part of this year’s highly anticipated event.

Now in its seventh year, The CEO Magazine’s Executive of the Year Awards is an incredibly prestigious night on the corporate calendar in Australia.

Its aim is to recognise the individual achievements of Australia’s leading CEOs and senior management executives, highlighting their work over a 12-month period.

The CEO Magazine’s Co-Founder and CEO Chris Dutton says that it keeps getting bigger and more exciting every year.

“I was told last year that this event genuinely changes careers/lives and really makes a difference – more so than I know,” he comments.

“I had the idea for the awards to shine the light on the most important assets any company can have, its staff, and it’s an important event because of how many companies enter these awards to underscore that belief.

“It’s so great to see it grow every year, I’m proud of everyone that has helped make it the success it is.”

With 24 categories, including the pinnacle CEO of the Year, there’s something for every executive in every industry.

3 reasons to apply:


The spotlight is not on a company’s success, but rather the success of the individuals who make them tick. Get the recognition you’ve worked hard for at the Executive of the Year Awards, and share the journey with your team.


It’s an event attracts more than 550 guests and nominees from Australia’s leading brands. Past winners have included SBS’s Michael Ebeid, Hancock Prospecting’s Gina Rinehart, Carnival Australia’s Ann Sherry and Australia Post’s Bob Black.

There’s also a high-profile judging panel each year. For 2018 it includes Shark Tank Australia star Steve Baxter, BPAY Group CEO John Banfield and Lorna Jane founder Lorna Jane Clarkson.
