We want to make the application process for the Executive of the Year Awards as easy as possible, so, for 2021, we’re excited to announce a number of new categories.
Our major award is for a CEO of an Australian business. This year, our major award is being split into three categories dependent on annual turnover in the past 12 months.
As part of this application, you will be asked to submit a supporting video introducing yourself and your company financials. Finalists must also be available for an interview with the judges (if necessary).
The winners of CEO of the Year will be featured in our December ANZ magazine.
