Message from our Chairman

We started the New Zealand Deloitte Fast 50 programme in 2000 to recognise and celebrate our country’s fastest growing companies. In the 17 years we’ve been producing the annual index, we’ve met some of our most iconic Kiwi companies before they’ve become the household names they are today.

Not only do Fast 50 companies take the New Zealand market by storm, many lead the way, taking Kiwi products and services to the world, boosting our reputation on the international stage while underpinning economic growth at home. 

We're thrilled to continue our relationship with BNZ on the Deloitte Fast 50 and look forward to working together to support New Zealand’s SME business community. We are proud to be associated with these high achieving businesses and are excited to introduce the Master of Growth award to this year's index. New Zealand needs more of these kinds of businesses – companies with smarts and ambition to grow.

Message from our premium partner

We’re delighted BNZ has joined as our premium partner on the Deloitte Fast 50 for another three years.

Here’s what Shelley Ruha, Director of BNZ Partners, has to say:

The SME sector has such an important role to play in driving the New Zealand economy, and at BNZ, we’re passionate about supporting the ambitious growth plans of Kiwi companies. We’re focused on creating an environment for success so New Zealand businesses can do business anywhere, surrounded by everything they need to succeed – which is why we’ve partnered with the Deloitte Fast 50 for the fourth year in a row.

The Deloitte Fast 50 has a well-established reputation of highlighting the achievements of Kiwi businesses and provides a fantastic opportunity for our emerging entrepreneurs. It’s also a celebration of those successful and inspirational businesses that are the backbone of New Zealand’s economy and future prosperity.

We are also thrilled to be working with our media partner, Fairfax Media.
