The Auckland Trotting Club has been named the supreme category winner for ‘Excellence In Strategy & Planning’ in the Westpac Auckland Best Of The Best Business Awards 2015.

Late last year the Auckland Trotting Club won the category for the Auckland Central region. However now the club has been recognised as the absolute best business in that category across Greater Auckland – beating the regional winners from Auckland North, South, and West. 

“We’re just blown away. It was great winning the category for Auckland Central in November, but now to be named the best in strategy and planning across the entire region is a huge tribute to the team at Alexandra Park who continue to work so hard and remain so focused,” says Alexandra Park chief executive Dominique Dowding.

The award reflects the Auckland Trotting Club’s huge success in rolling out a bold strategic business plan which secures a stronger financial future for the club and harness racing in Auckland. A key part of that is Alexandra Park’s ambitious urban village development, now under construction on Green Lane West.

Ms Dowding says as a membership-based sporting club being formally recognised in a largely corporate arena is acknowledgement of just how comprehensively the club is commercially transforming.

“Winning is a huge endorsement of our vision, innovation and the culture and future we collectively believe in. In today’s climate of sport and entertainment we need to keep relevant and sustainable. The economic transformation and diversification of Alexandra Park’s business is critical to that.

“Congratulations to all the regional category winners and the Best Of The Best winners. Thanks to the Auckland Chamber Of Commerce and the Westpac Business Awards sponsors. It has been a great journey for us.”

Ms Dowding says Alexandra Park’s high-end urban village vision is now a reality with apartment sales strong, a new grocery concept for Auckland confirmed, and leading hospitality operators and retailers soon to be announced.

Alexandra’s on-site apartment display is open from 12pm to 4pm daily or by appointment by calling the Colliers team on 0800-275-484 or visiting
