Recognition. Exposure. Celebration.

Recognising the best business leaders from around Australia, The CEO Magazine’s Executive of the Year Awards returns for its ninth year at The Star, Sydney on 12 November 2020.

As one of Australia’s premier business events on the corporate calendar, the night has become synonymous with shining a spotlight on the achievements of the business leaders who make this country great.

Coming together under one roof, an exceptional mix of successful executives and entrepreneurs will celebrate the inspirational leaders of the year. Previous winners of the pinnacle award, CEO of the Year, include David Hackett (for MLC Life Insurance) in 2019, Mark Nielsen (for Talent International) in 2018, and Michael Ebeid (for SBS) in 2017.

Why enter the Executive of the Year Awards?

As well as recognition, exposure, an opportunity to network with the leading players in Australian business and a celebration thrown in your honour, winners across the award categories receive an elegant trophy and media coverage from The CEO Magazine and associated outlets.

The winner of the 2020 CEO of the Year Award will be the cover star of The CEO Magazine ANZ’s January/February 2021 issue and will be invited to join the judging panel at the following year’s awards.

For 2020, The CEO Magazine has revisited the list of categories as well as the application process, making getting involved easier than ever before. Register your interest to learn more.
