The Queenstown based adventure tourism operation won in the marketplace category. It took one of the top placings along with Beca, Soar Printing, Auckland Airport, Bank of New Zealand, Meridian Energy and Anguillid Consulting Engineers and Scientists.
PricewaterhouseCoopers partner and judge Julia Hoare said in a statement the calibre of the entries was "outstanding".
