ARANZ Geo scores spot in 2017 Hi-Tech awards line up

The New Zealand Hi-Tech Awards are coming up in May, and ARANZ Geo has just been announced as a finalist in the PwC Hi-Tech Company of the Year 2017 category.

Shaun Maloney, Managing Director of ARANZ Geo, says they’re delighted to be named as one of the country’s top hi-tech companies for the third year in a row.

“It’s a fantastic achievement for our people who are contributing to our success from over a dozen countries around the world,” he explains.

ARANZ Geo solutions turn complex data into geological understanding and the company’s flagship software suite Leapfrog, is the global leader in 3D geological modelling for the exploration, mining, civil, environmental and renewable energy sectors. 

Headquartered in Christchurch, ARANZ Geo has 12 offices around Asia/Pacific, Africa, Latin America, North America and Europe.  Wayne Norrie, Chair of the Hi-Tech Trust, says the standard of entries is the highest ever seen in the history of the Awards.

Entries this year were scattered from Kaitaia to Invercargill, resulting in a record number of entries – 30% up on last year. The local judges are joined by a world class line up of international judges including Gary Hamel,  Pascal Finette, Linda Jenkinson, Rohit Shukla, Savannah Peterson, Dr Catherine Mohr, Claudia Batten, Michael Boustridge, Katherine Corich, Erik Dijkstra, Pat Kenealy, Richard Keyse, Nick Lambert and Andy Lark.

“The Hi-Tech Awards continue to be the New Zealand technology industry's most important celebration of success and a wonderful showcase for our innovation and talent, following a sell-out crowd last year, we fully anticipate the same for 2017 Gala Dinner,” concludes Norrie.
