Two local business people have been inducted into the West Auckland Business Hall of Fame by caretaker Deputy Prime Minister Paula Bennett.
Loukas Petrou, of Canam Group and Mark Robinson, of Autex Industries Ltd, were acknowledged for their outstanding contribution to business in the West and beyond and to their local communities. This is the first time a business in the Rosebank area has been inducted.
The business people were honoured at an Auckland Business Hall of Fame Awards luncheon on Friday (15 September 2017) at The Trusts Arena. The West Auckland Business Hall of Fame, previously known as the Waitakere Business Hall of Fame, recognises outstanding business achievement in the West.

“The awards are a great opportunity to celebrate these incredible business achievements along with their peers and supporters in the West Auckland business community,” Tim Livingstone says.
