Deloitte Top 200

Celebrating management excellence in New Zealand

Each year, the Top 200 celebrates proven excellence in New Zealand business management and governance. Past Top 200 winners and finalists have made a vital contribution to our economy and New Zealand’s future prosperity.

We partner with NZME to deliver the Deloitte Top 200 through the country’s most prominent business media channels – The New Zealand Herald and NewstalkZB.

The Top 200 rankings

The Top 200 companies list has developed into one of the business community’s most highly-respected sources of information. The list showcases the rise and fall of New Zealand’s largest organisations from year to year.

The Top 200 list is  based on revenue, and a separate listing of New Zealand’s Top 30 financial enterprises and Top Maori organisations is based on asset value. The Top 200 lists comprise public listed and unlisted companies, New Zealand subsidiaries of multinational companies, cooperatives, societies and state-owned enterprises (SOEs), plus private companies prepared to supply audited accounts.

The Top 200 awards
From the Top 200 list, significant contenders are identified for a series of awards. A thorough and comprehensive judging process follows with the winners announced at a black tie event held annually.

Submissions are sought for the following awards this year:

  • MBIE Diversity and Inclusion Leadership Award. For further information on providing a submission for this award please click here.
