Sharpe® awarded Family Business Association’s ‘Established Family Business QLD’

Sharpe® are thrilled to announce that we have been recognised at the Family Business Association (FBA) Business Excellence Awards winning ‘Established Family Business QLD’.

Each year, this accolade recognises an established family business that exemplifies the principles of governance, entrepreneurship, and stewardship in their operations.

Coinciding with our 28 Year milestone, Sharpe® was presented the award during the FBA’s 25 Year Luncheon. Accepting the award was the 2nd generation of the Sharpe family, Elizabeth Sharpe, Jon Sharpe, and Ellen Bain, who shared,

“We are passionate about family business and everyone at Sharpe® is considered a part of the family.”

We would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate FBA who are celebrating their own 25 Year milestone!  The advice, support and inspiration that you have provided to our organisation and family over this time has been empowering and invaluable. Please keep up the amazing work your team are doing in celebrating Australian family businesses and the remarkable individuals behind them.

“From our first national conference, we were hooked” Ellen says, adding that the FBA “is a great community to be a part of with a diverse range of industries, generations, and inspiring emerging and legacy businesses.”

We would like to congratulate the other nominees, including Queensland Sheet & Steel Pty Ltd who took out the ‘Legacy Family Business Award QLD’. We would also like to thank FBA and the judges who have dedicated their time and expertise to evaluate a number of exceptional nominees all vying for this coveted award.

Sharpe® will now line up with other established family businesses from across Australia competing for the coveted title of ‘Australian Established Family Business of the Year’.
