2017/18 Finalists and Winners

The Monash Business Awards Gala Dinner was held on 27 July 2018 at Huntingdale Golf Club to celebrate the finalists and winners for the 2017-18 year.

 

Ryman Healthcare Australia – Winner in the Health Category

Ryman Healthcare is a retirement village and aged care operator. They were founded more than 30 years ago on the principle that the care they offered had to be better than anyone else. Back in 1984 co-founder, Kevin Hickman, decided he wanted to create a healthcare company whose care would be “good enough for mum”. That holds true today. They picked Monash as their first home in Australia and “couldn’t have picked a better place to do business”.
