Lord Mayor’s Multicultural Awards for Business

Croomo Founding Director, Schalk Pienaar, has been named as the Multicultural Business Person of the Year at the 2017 Lord Mayor’s Multicultural Awards for Business!

The Lord Mayor’s Multicultural Awards for Business celebrate the contribution multicultural businesses make to the Brisbane economy and community through their creativity, innovation and resilience.

As a fundraising event, it attracts a strong following from Brisbane’s multicultural community and business sector. Hundreds of people attend the event each year to raise funds for the Lord Mayor’s Multicultural Business Development Program, while enjoying the many networking opportunities.

This year the Lord Mayor’s Multicultural Business Scholarship Program and Mentoring Scheme will have supported almost 300 recipients since the program began in 2008.

Award winners were recognised at the 2017 Lord Mayor’s Multicultural Business Dinner on Saturday 27 May at City Hall.
