Winners were judged by an expert panel of highly regarded business professionals including Libby Roy, Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand, PayPal; James Ajaka, former CEO, Nudie; Ron Santiago, Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand, Europcar; John Karagounis, Managing Director and CEO, The CEO Circle; Adeo Ressi, Founder and CEO, the Founder Institute; along with The CEO Magazine’s judges, Chris Dutton, Founder and CEO, and Daniel Di Loreto, Publishing Director.
Anurag’s win was announced at a glittering awards ceremony hosted by Eddie McGuire, held for the first time at Crown Melbourne on Thursday 26 November 2015. In determining the winner for each category, the judges examined the business acumen of applicants on their personal achievements, the contribution and differences the individual has made to the company where they work, financial highlights, and new initiatives that they have established.
The Executive of the Year Awards is one of the most important and prestigious events on the calendar for hundreds of leading executives across Australia. The awards themselves do not focus on a company’s success, as many do, but the spotlight is on the success of individuals who make the corporations tick – namely senior executives such as CEOs, Managing Directors, CFOs, CIOs, Directors, and senior-level management. The awards recognise the achievements of individual executives over the past year and the contributions they have made to their companies. Now in its fourth year, the 2015 Executive of the Year Awards was the biggest yet with more than 550 guests and nominees from the country’s most respected and innovative brands.
