The Suncorp Group has joined an illustrious collection of iconic business identities and organisations, after it was inducted into the Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame on Thursday, 28 July 2016.
Suncorp was one of six organisations and leaders to be welcomed to the Hall of Fame by the Governor of Queensland, the Hon Paul de Jersey AC, at a black-tie gala dinner at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
“Suncorp this year celebrates 100 years of proudly serving Queenslanders, so I’m delighted we can mark this great honour alongside such an important milestone in our history,” said Michael Cameron, Suncorp CEO and Managing Director .
“Over the past century, Suncorp has grown to become Queensland’s largest company and one of the largest financial services providers in Australia and New Zealand. Our Queensland heritage is critical, as is our commitment to creating value for our customers.
“We are thrilled to join the ranks of some of the most influential figures and businesses in Queensland and Australia’s history.”
Professor Peter Little, QUT’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Corporate Programs and Partnerships), is on the Hall of Fame’s governing committee which chose this year’s inductees.
“Suncorp and its fellow business leaders inducted in 2016 have demonstrated the innovation, heart and resilience that are typical Queensland traits,” he said.
“Their extraordinary stories of enterprise have helped shape the development of this great state and they will forever be valued and remembered.”
The Queensland Business Leaders Hall of Fame is a joint initiative between the QUT Business School, State Library of Queensland and Queensland Library Foundation. The award is now in its eighth year.
