UPFRONT : The 2006 Blake medallist is…

Stephen Tindall, founder of The Warehouse and sustainable business proponent, has been named as this year’s recipient of the Blake Medal – New Zealand’s supreme award for leadership.
This recognition reflects Tindall’s diverse range of contributions – not only as business leader but as chair of the NZ Business Council for Sustainable Development, member of the Knowledge Wave Trust and of the Growth and Innovation Advisory Council. He is also co-founder of Kea NZ which now connects 6000 professionals in more than 100 countries, member of the New Zealand Institute and member of the Growth and Innovation Advisory Board to the Prime Minister.
Last year Tindall also earned the Designworks Enterprise IG Visionary Leader award at the Deloitte/Management magazine Top 200 Awards.
He was presented with the Blake Medal by Governor-General Dame Silvia Cartwright at ceremony in Wellington last month, which also included recognition of six emerging leaders – chosen for their leadership style and potential.
These were Emeline Afeaki-Mafile’o, founder of Affirming Works in Manukau; Andrew Berry, senior sergeant at Otara Police Station; David McConnell, joint managing director of McConnell; Michael Redman, mayor of Hamilton; Sarah Trotman, founder of the Small Business Expo; and Gary Wilson, chair of the multinational Antarctic drilling project ANDRILL.
