Serko was named winner of the Excellence in Innovation award at the 2018 International Business Awards on November 8th.
The Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and David Parker, Minister for Trade and Export Growth, and more than 500 people at a black-tie event in Auckland celebrated the 31 leading export companies that made it through to the finals of the awards.
Talking about Serko's win, judge Craig Cotton said: “The reason that Serko won is that CEO Darrin Grafton was able to show a true culture of innovation, end to end in terms of the processes. The way their people develop their products or services, ultimately for the end consumer, was outstanding. What was really exciting is that this is a true global opportunity, this could become a more than billion-dollar company.”
