Export people - key New Zealanders

Last year I posted about Bill Buckley - exporter and New Zealand Entrepreneur of the Year.   The New Year Honours List has also highlighted the importance of export people in our country and given them some recognition for the crucial role they play in the economy.

This year Howard Wright and Brendan Lindsay - both exporters - have been made members of the New Zealand Order of Merit.  Howard Wright's company Howard Wright Ltd  manufactures and exports medical equipment from New Plymouth, while Brendan Lindsay, co-founder and owner of Sistema Plastics uses robotic technology to manufacture plastics products in Auckland.   Congratulations to them both.

They are just two of the growing group of innovative, entrepreneurial and plain hard-working people who export from our country.  You can find others by searching in the New Zealand School of Export's catalogue at:
