Baw Baw Business Awards winners

Warragul’s Best Match Recruitment has been awarded Business of the Year at the SP AusNet Baw Baw Shire Business Excellence Awards 2014.

Over 185 members of the Baw Baw Shire business community celebrated their successes at a gala dinner on Friday evening at the Lardner Park Exhibition Centre.

The Mayor acknowledged SP AusNet for supporting the awards since their inception and congratulated each of the nominated businesses.

“The business awards recognise the hard work that the business owners put into our community throughout the year, and also help to raise the profile of local businesses.

“These awards also provide an opportunity for residents to thank businesses for the work that they do in making our community a vibrant, wonderful, thriving place to be part of,” said the Mayor.

SP AusNet’s Corporate Relations Coordinator, Joanne Treloar, said SP AusNet is pleased to support such a worthy award program that recognises business excellence in the Baw Baw Shire.
