The Broadband Compare Awards is another step closer to its full complement of judges with the announcement today that Craig Young, Chief Executive Officer of TUANZ, is joining the judging panel of the inaugural Broadband Compare Awards (http://www.broadbandawards.co.nz).

Craig is passionate about the communications industry and the opportunity it offers for improving business and personal lives in New Zealand and in his current role as the Chief Executive of the Telecommunications Association of NZ (TUANZ) he advocates for the improvement of communication services across NZ.  TUANZ has a proud history of providing leadership in representing the views and needs of the people and businesses that rely on communications technology every.

Commenting on the announcement of the new judge, founder and CEO of Broadband Compare, Gavin Male, said: “The Broadband Compare Awards offer New Zealand broadband providers throughout the country an opportunity to be recognised as leading the way in the ever-changing telecoms sector.  Having Craig on board as a judge is a fantastic coup for the awards.  His extensive experience and knowledge in the telecoms sector across New Zealand make him a hugely experienced and valued judge for our inaugural event.” 

Craig joins a highly experienced and diverse panel of judges that includes representatives from The Interactive Advertising Bureau of New Zealand, TrueNet and Consumer NZ – New Zealand’s trusted source of independent consumer information.  The awards feature twelve different categories including, Best ADSL Provider, Best Regional/Small ISP, Best Fibre Broadband Provider and the Consumer NZ Broadband Provider of the Year Award.    

Male continued: “These awards provide a unique opportunity to recognise and celebrate the many achievements of the broadband sector and the companies, and individuals whose efforts are making a significant contribution to the sector and I would highly recommend any company considering entering the awards to take a shot. With more than 30,000 Kiwis comparing broadband every month through the Broadband Compare website a winning entry could pay back big time.”

Entries are open now and more information is available at http://www.broadbandawards.co.nz/.  The awards night is on November 2, 2017 at The Sapphire Room in Auckland.
