Resonate Health were the Supreme Award winners and also won the Innovation, Healthcare and Best New Business categories.

Audiology business Resonate Health has taken Supreme Award at the inaugural East Auckland Business Awards tonight.

The winners of the inaugural East Auckland Business Awards were announced at a glitzy awards dinner at Pakuranga United Rugby Club this evening [March 20].

Resonate Health also won the Innovation, Healthcare and Best New Business categories.

The awards are a collaboration between Business East Tāmaki and Howick Village Association, sponsored by Bayleys and supported by the Howick Local Board.

This first year is a pilot covering the two groups and their membership boundaries only, so organisers can gauge interest.  They will then be better positioned to determine required resourcing levels etc in order to extend the awards to the greater east Auckland area (Pakaranga, Botany, Ormiston etc).

Eighty businesses entered in nine categories.

Business East Tamaki chairperson Brendan Kelly said, “The awards showcase the best of our vibrant and diverse business community and honour all of the finalists’ and winners’ hard work, dedication and innovative spirit that set them apart from the rest.

“These awards are about local recognition, giving the opportunity to herald and support businesses that go the extra mile, do the hard yards and do something different,” said Kelly.

Business East Tamaki general manager Ruth White said, “It’s quite the cliché, but we honestly could not get these awards off the ground if it hadn’t been for the support of our major partner Bayleys, the Howick Local Board, sponsors and judges who are each a standout in their own industry.

“We have viewed 2024 as a pilot to get a gauge of the support and resources needed and if sustainable, we would hope to open it up to the wider east Auckland area in the future.”
