Doyle Sails New Zealand were named ‘Best Medium Business’ at the 2019 New Zealand Trade and Enterprise International Business Awards. 

Doyle beat out some stiff competition - after a nine month application and judging process for several hundred of New Zealand’s top export companies, 39 made it through to the final stage of the awards. The award for ‘Best Medium business’ recognises success for businesses with total annual revenue between $5 million and $40 million.

The judges described Doyle Sails as “a compelling business with great results and even greater potential, with a sales approach driven by precise customer knowledge, and a relentless ambition and drive to win that resonates across the organisation”.

The award also cements the great work of the leadership team of Mike Sanderson, Richard Bouzaid and David Duff since taking over the ownership of Doyle Sails International in 2017. “Growing a company, while retaining its strong core values and reputation can be a delicate balance. We’re so proud of our team, it’s great to be recognised for our contribution to New Zealand.” says CEO Mike Sanderson.

Award 5

“The award recognises the amazing work our whole team does, from sailmakers, to the sales team, the head office staff - every person at Doyle helps make the company a success. Being short-listed for excellence in design is further tribute to the calibre of our team”.

Fittingly for a company at the forefront of research and development - and the inventors of the revolutionary Stratis membrane technology - Doyle were also short-listed for the excellence in design award - which highlights the best use of design to succeed in a global marketplace.
