AJ Park is a proud winner of the 2014 AUT Excellence in Business Support Award - Export Support for the second consecutive year. The award was a joint win this year with DHL Express.

'We are extremely proud of our clients and the work they do,' says Pete Boyle, Chief Executive of AJ Park. 'This honour reinforces our commitment to seeing our clients succeed, in particular, to thrive in export markets. The evaluation is a valuable independent assessment of our business processes and included a review of our client services programme. Our goal is to deliver an outstanding client journey experience every step of the way, and we will continue to improve our efforts to deliver on this.'

'AJ Park, which prides itself on helping NZ businesses to protect their IP in a competitive global market, is a deserving winner of the Export Support category for the second consecutive year. Since winning the award in 2013, AJ Park has continued with initiatives that support the delivery of quality advice to clients. The organisation's culture of continuously improving its service to clients has been recognised with high levels of client satisfaction as well as industry awards and accolades,' said evaluator, AUT Business School lecturer Dr Anne Messervy.

Now into the ninth year, the AUT Awards are the only national performance measure for New Zealand organisations that provide business support.  Applications are judged by evaluators from the AUT Business School and the New Zealand Business Excellence Foundation. Evaluation focuses on leadership and planning, customer and market focus, provision of business support, evaluation and improvement, and results.
