Owning a business is no small feat, and nobody knows that better than our KiwiSpan network. The network consists of over 20 independently owned licenses that are based throughout the country. Together, they have helped build KiwiSpan’s reputation as one of New Zealand’s most trusted steel shed suppliers.
Here at Donovan Group, we don’t let hard work go unnoticed. Every year, we hold an annual national Conference to host the network, share company updates and most importantly, recognise those who stood out for their exceptional work and business savvy. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, we weren’t able to host the Awards Ceremony in person but we look forward to the event taking place later this year in Wellington.
We’re proud to announce the winners of the 2021 KiwiSpan Licensee Awards are:
