Genics wins Small Business category at Premier of Queensland’s Export Awards 2023

Trade and Investment Queensland hosted the annual Premier of Queensland’s Export Awards last night, and it was a night to remember for Genics, emerging as the proud winners in the Small Business category.

The Premier of Queensland’s Export Awards is a prestigious annual event celebrating the outstanding achievements of export-oriented businesses in Queensland. It’s a platform that recognizes and applauds companies that are not only thriving in the domestic market but also making their mark in the global arena by introducing innovative Australian products to the world. 

The 2023 awards night saw 43 companies vie for recognition in this prestigious competition, competing across 15 categories. The announcement of the 2023 award winners was made by Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Treasurer and Minister for Trade and Investment Cameron Dick. 

Genics triumphed in the Small Business category, showcasing its dedication to punching above its weight in the global agricultural technology sphere. This victory represents a significant milestone for Genics and a gratifying recognition of the company’s contribution to the Queensland export industry over the last twelve months.

A substantial contingent of Genics team members was at the ceremony for the award presentation, adding to the moment’s significance. Among them were: Dr. Melony Sellars, the CEO and Managing Director, whose leadership has played a pivotal role in guiding Genics towards success; Roger Sayers, Non-Executive Director and Chairman; and Dirk Krueger, Chief Commercial Officer and Director. Also in attendance to celebrate were Dr. Ralf Moser, R&D Director, Dr. Joanna Gerszon, Senior R&D Scientist, Michael Speirs, Head of Digital Solutions, Louise Franz, Commercial Operations Manager, and Senior Scientist, and Emmanuel Marshall, Senior Marketing and Communications Manager.
