The American Chamber of Commerce in New Zealand exists to promote two-way trade and investment relationships between New Zealand and the United States, and this year they are celebrating fifty years of trade and investment between the two countries.

For the past seventeen years Amcham have run an annual awards event, celebrating success and innovation for New Zealand companies doing business with the USA, and this year WhereScape is thrilled to be announced as a finalist in the Exporter of the Year to the USA over $10 million category.

This is a huge achievement for WhereScape – the quality of the other companies is humbling. The finalists in our category alone include: 

  • Douglas Pharmaceuticals - one of the fastest growing pharmaceutical development and manufacturing companies in Oceania.
  • Leading Wine companies Constellation Brands, Giesen Wines, and Whitehaven Wine Company Ltd (bodes well for the event dinner).
  • One of the fastest growing New Zealand SaaS companies, Pushpay.
  • And one of New Zealand’s (and my) most admired companies, Gallagher Group, a global leader in the Animal Management, Security, Fuel and Contract Manufacturing sectors.
