INSURANCE company CGU has thrown its support behind this year’s 2013 CGU Banjo Business Awards agreeing to sponsor the event for the 24th time.
CGU regional manger Allan Train said the businesses recognised by these awards epitomised business excellence and the importance of outstanding local customer service.
“The businesses that are honoured with an award have set superior levels of business excellence, something vital for a growing business community such as that which exists in Orange,” Mr Train said.
“These awards are a chance to recognise businesses within Orange that have shown clear levels of excellence, something that as a business they should be very proud of.”
Mr Train said the CGU Banjo Business Awards gave the community the opportunity to gather and celebrate the successes which have enabled this city to thrive.
“The professionalism these businesses display contributes to the stellar reputation that Orange has established,” he said.
Awards chairman Mark Monaghan said CGU’s involvement in the awards was vital to their continued success.
“Without CGU’s support over the last 23 years we wouldn’t have been able to grow the awards into the event it’s now become,” Mr Monaghan said.
“It’s great to be able to celebrate the achievements of local businesses with CGU.”
This year the event was given a name change in an effort to celebrate how much writer Banjo Patterson contributed to rural life in the central west.
