Top young individuals honoured during inaugural Emerging Leaders forum

Reseller News has honoured the most outstanding young leaders to emerge in the New Zealand IT industry at the 2019 30 Under 30 Tech Awards.

Held at the Cordis Hotel in Auckland, the awards recognised the achievements of 30 talented individuals who consistently go the extra mile in their daily working lives.

The winners were announced as part of the inaugural Emerging Leaders forum, a newly launched forum designed to educate, mentor and showcase the upcoming technology talent in New Zealand.

Honing in on six categories, spanning management; entrepreneur; sales; marketing; technical and human resources, the awards acknowledged a breadth and depth of talent and success from New Zealand's future ICT leaders.

The two categories of sales and marketing stood out in particular, collectively accounting for half the total number of winners.

In order to celebrate their achievement, all winners received awards logos and email signatures.

Reseller News congratulates all winners and finalists and thanks all organisations and individuals for taking the time to submit nominations.
