Check out the 2017 Deloitte Fast 50 finalists, featuring Xero, Pushpay, Crimson Consulting and more

The 2017 Deloitte Fast 50 regional category winners have been announced. The big takeaway: some companies grow faster than others.

The national Deloitte Fast 50 index, national category winners, national Rising Star winner and national Master of Growth winner will be unveiled as part of the Deloitte Festival of Fast Growth, which will take place in Auckland on November 9.

Deloitte Private partner Bill Hale says this year’s regional winners showcase business success throughout the country.  “These results clearly demonstrate that there are a diverse range of businesses across New Zealand that are achieving outstanding growth. It is great to see these companies thriving by capitalising on their points of difference and executing on their plans. A common theme is that they are all strong across strategy, capability and commitment, but focus on finding a point of difference and nailing it in that niche.”

The Deloitte Festival of Fast Growth is a full-day event where Fast 50 companies will hear from inspirational speakers, network with other winners past and present, interact with industry experts and celebrate their success.

But, c'mon: you want to see who made the cut, right? Yeah, that's kind of what we thought. So here they are, in all their glory.

You're welcome.
