Vuly is proud to stand alongside so many dynamic and successful businesses at this year's Lord Mayor Business Awards as a finalist in the category of Business Innovation.
This is also the fifth consecutive year that Vuly CEO – Joe Andon – has been a finalist for the Young Business Person of the Year, but he's also up for Business Person of the Year.
An award for under-35 individuals who have had outstanding success that's benefited both Brisbane and their business... we think that Joe fits this bill! By shepherding Vuly from a small business in his bedroom to an international play company, Joe has accomplished a tremendous amount at such a young age.
Joe continues to play a very active role in the company that he created, devising new innovations in safety, design and aesthetics for all the outdoor products that Vuly sells. We think that's the hallmark of a great, young business person – staying involved in and attuned to the business that you had the passion to create.
He may still be a young business person, but we're very happy to also see Joe recognised as an outstanding business person who's dedicated to Brisbane and to the pursuit of excellence. To be the only person nominated for both Business Person and Young Business Person in 2016 is a special achievement, and it shows the respect that the business community has for our CEO.
Joe has instilled in Vuly our Mission and Values, which are based on giving our best to make the world a more healthy, safe and fun place. We hope that his great efforts with us result in a much-deserved award.
Vuly is built on the power of innovation. It's why we're so thrilled to receive recognition as a company at the forefront of innovation in Australia. We're extremely competitive nationally and globally. With or without an award, we're proud of our developments in safety and design for outdoor products.
The Lord Mayor himself, Graham Quirk, toured our HQ earlier this year and praised Vuly for "shaping our city as one recognised for its innovation". We hope to act as inspiration for other creative, Brisbane-based business!
Stay tuned for the results of the Lord Mayor's Business Awards! We'll have our fingers crossed for Vuly and Joe.
