#15 in the BDO Australia Fast Movers SA 2023 Awards
Not only was De Stefano & Co included in the top 25 fastest growing South Australian companies for our second year running, but we took out 15th place for 2023!
Run by BDO, the Fast Movers SA program recognises the fastest growing and most innovative small to medium enterprises in South Australia. Designed to celebrate and support local businesses to grow and flourish, the Top 25 fastest moving businesses are determined by average percentage growth in revenue across the past three financial years.
After proudly taking out 12th place in the 2022 awards, the top 25 for 2023 were announced in descending order at a celebratory breakfast held at Eos at SkyCity on Friday May 5. Attended by over 300 people, the breakfast featured guest speaker Kim Skubris, MC Elspeth Hussey and special guest Hon Andrea Michaels MP.
Director & Principal, Emilio De Stefano, was honoured to be ranked amongst so many other high performing South Australian businesses.
"To be recognised as one of the 25 fastest growing businesses in SA for the second year running is something I’m incredibly proud of. Over the last year we’ve almost doubled the size of the team. We’ve brought on good, authentic people, leaders in our field who genuinely care about our clients and the defence of our country. It’s our team and their willingness to bend over backwards and go the extra mile that has made this result possible. I want to say a huge thank you to my dedicated team and hope to be at the awards again in 2024!"
