The Supply Nation Connect 2016 Gala Awards Dinner was a memorable evening for the Pacific Services Group Holdings (PSGH) family. Not only was the evening co-sponsored by PSGH’s majority-owned company Evolve FM, PSGH was also the most successful company at the awards, winning the Supplier to Supplier Partnership of the Year (in conjunction with Cole Workwear) and the big one – the Certified Supplier of the Year.
CEO Mark Coleman said “These awards are the culmination of over five years of really hard work for all at PSGH. From humble beginnings in 2011, we’ve now reached the point where PSGH is one of the best known Indigenous businesses in Australia.”
PSGH Co-Owner Troy Rugless agreed, noting “These awards – especially Certified Supplier of the Year – belong to everyone who has been part of the PSGH journey so far. From our current and former staff who have worked so hard to give us the results, and to our management team, as well as our clients and suppliers who have made us part of their journey as well”.
The first award – Supplier to Supplier Partnership – recognises the strength of the relationship formed between Cole Workwear and PSGH. PSGH has been sourcing its workwear and other items from Cole for over 12 months, and it’s a relationship that has been good for both parties.
The main award, Certified Supplier of the Year, in effect recognises PSGH as the leading Indigenous-owned business in Australia for 2015-16. In that time PSGH has close to doubled in size, and has added a range of new clients, including CSIRO, the Australian Taxation Office, and the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet, as well as our ongoing relationships with Defence, Department of Human Services, Finance and others.
PSGH Co-owner Shane Jacobs said “It was just a fantastic night all round. It was great to show our many guests what a good night it can be, and for us to win two awards really reflects the hard work that has got us here. It was also great to relax with lots of our own staff as well.”
Mark Coleman agreed, but also said that the awards are just another milestone on PSGH’s path. “It’s great to take time out and be recognised for our achievements so far. But 2016-17 will be even bigger for PSGH, and for the Indigenous Business Sector more broadly, and we definitely want to be here again in 2017!!!”
