Deloitte has announced the winners of its first ever Best Managed Companies Awards with an Australian airport among the eight companies recognised.
Northern Territory Airports (NT Airports) was recognised for its innovation, strategic planning and long-term commitment.
The awards recognise local excellence and success of privately owned companies; encompassing four key successful business pillars identified as capabilities and innovation, strategy, governance and financial and culture and commitment.
NT Airports welcomes more than three million passengers a year to the NT, across its three airports in Darwin, Alice Springs and Tennant Creek. NT Airports is also a major leader of economic growth and sustainability in the Territory, and is an integral part of the local communities in which it operates.
NT Airports CEO, Ian Kew, said, NT Airports is honoured to be acknowledged as one of Australia’s Best Managed Companies.
“Being involved in the Best Managed Companies program allowed us to reflect on our achievements, skills and satisfaction of our workforce and customer satisfaction.
“NT Airports promotes a culture of innovation, focussing on constant improvements and is willing to take well considered risks to grow and diversify our business. Businesses like ours firmly believe we have a real responsibility to contribute to both the local economy and community. The program provided an opportunity to review our values and goals and be proud of the growth of the company.
“Congratulations and well done to my entire team, this is a great accomplishment.”
Aviation and non-aviation businesses contribute to more than 1.2 per cent of the Gross State Product of the NT.
