"Opmantek (ASSOB:OMK) has been acknowledged by Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk for innovation, leadership and for being QLD’s leading ICT exporter at the Premier of Queensland’s Export Awards at the Brisbane Convention Centre this month.
Opmantek took out multiple awards including the award for Information and Communication Technology for the second consecutive year after a period of strong growth and international acclaim for their network management and audit software.
The company was further honoured with the Dermot McManus Award for Leadership and Innovation – a prestigious award that recognizes the single exporter in the state that has demonstrated the strongest leadership and business innovation- including strategy, production and processes.
In an official press statement, Ms Palaszczuk said “It’s important that we recognise the international success of Queensland exporters – not only to celebrate their achievements but also to inspire others to look at overseas markets.”
Accepting the award on behalf of Opmantek was lead developer Mark Dueck. “It was such an honour to accept the awards on behalf of our team. We write software in Australia that is used all over the world, I love seeing the positive impact of our work on so many companies and it’s great to have our efforts acknowledged for a second year.”
Opmantek Export Manager, Sharon Hunneybell, was overseas at the time of the ceremony but expressed her excitement in the back to back ICT award win and the further recognition for Innovation and Leadership. “Opmantek is going through a period of substantial international growth which has been driven by a highly innovative business model and an innovative suite of technology to drive it. The Dermot McManus Award is a great acknowledgement of the efforts we have been making to develop and prove business practices for all Australian software companies to leverage.”
Opmantek CEO Danny Maher who was also overseas said “Australia is a fantastic place to live. We need businesses that keep our talented people at home and bring money in to Australia. I am excited about what Opmantek is achieving and hope that this latest recognition inspires my team and the teams of other Australian software companies". "
