Family Business Excellence Awards

Celebrate Your Success

Building a successful family business is a remarkable achievement of which you should be justifiably proud. Family Business Association (FBA) celebrates success in Family Business through the Family Business Excellence Awards.

For 25 years, Family Business Association has been supporting family businesses of all sizes across all industries. Having commenced in 2000, our Hall of Fame has now evolved into the Family Business Excellence Awards. which acknowledges family businesses at varying stages of maturity and ownership.

Recognising the achievements of families that are managing respected and successful family businesses, the Family Business Excellence Awards pays homage to the significant contribution they make to the Australian & New Zealand community, society and economy.

Entries for all award categories for 2023/24 are now all closed. All award winners will be announced at the Family Business Excellence Awards Dinner at the Family Business Conference 2024 - Asia Pacific

Award entries are open to FBA members and non-members*, as we celebrate the vital contribution of the family business sector as a whole. *with the exception of the Accredited Advisor of the Year Award, which is only open to FBA Accredited Advisor Members.

Unlike many other business awards, the Family Business Excellence Awards acknowledge and showcase excellence in family businesses. We invite family businesses to show us how their business is exemplary in a broad business sense, and in particular how family ownership and involvement help the business to achieve competitive advantage.

Awards for all categories will be presented at the annual Family Business Conference.
