INTOUCH : Best international businesses

It has undertaken work in over 70 countries and in the past five years has completed over 60 award-winning landmark projects (including the pictured Macau Sky Tower in China) – performance that helped earn Beca the Judges’ Supreme Award at the recent NZ Business International Business Awards.
Based in Auckland, Beca has more than 2500 employees and since 2006 has almost doubled its international revenue to $118 million. Picked as “best business operating internationally over $10 million” in the NZTE-organised awards, it’s company that characterises the high calibre of entrants, said NZTE chief executive Tim Gibson.
“None of Beca’s success is left to chance. The company has developed great capital structure that gives them room to grow and expand, strong focus on research and development, and rigorous HR processes. It has built culture that fosters innovation which has helped the company stay agile and ahead of its competitors.”
Other winning companies included Pitango Innovative Cuisine (see story p18) which earned best business under $10 million and Emerald Foods (best business $10-$50 million). Special category awards went to Banklink (most innovative approach to international business), Modtec Industries (best use of design), Gallagher Group (best use of IP), and Triodent (best use of R&D) – see story in the October issue of NZ Management, p32.
Two people were also singled out for their leadership acumen on the international business scene. Mark Eglinton (Tenon) earned emerging leader and Bill Gallagher (Gallagher Group) was lauded as “outstanding business leader”.
