Internetrix was announced as the 2007 Illawarra Business of the Year at a gala dinner before a 1000 strong audience of the region's leading business people.
The Integral Energy Illawarra Business Awards were held on Friday the 16th of November and are regional Australia's largest business awards, this year attracting over 100 entries spanning 18 categories.
In addition to the Business of the Year, the highest accolade for businesses in the Illawarra region, Internetrix was also named the winner in the Information and Communications Technology category.
The Illawarra region, which stretches from the southern outskirts of Sydney to Bateman's Bay in the south encompasses regional centres such as Wollongong, Nowra and Bowral, along with many smaller centres that are home to a combined population of over 400,000 people.
Category winners on the night came from a diverse cross section of prestigious companies. A complete list is available from the Illawarra Business Chamber.
"This award reflects the high caliber of the work we do, including our association with Google, our diversification into customer and service management applications, as well as our world class expertise" said Geoff McQueen, Managing Director of Internetrix. "This recognition is a great credit to our staff, who've worked so hard to turn a small company into an internationally competitive player."
Previous winners of the Business of the Year award include Seawind Catamarans, who deliver world class luxury catamarans to the global market, and Infocomp, who were recently acquired by listed technology company GBST Holdings for $50m.
