GIS People’s Managing Director Igor Stjepanovic is the recipient of Brisbane Lord Mayor’s Multicultural Entrepreneur of the Year Award 2014.
Igor, who hails originally from Bosnia and Herzegovina, founded GIS People, a geospatial and location intelligence company, just four years ago. The company has quickly became a rising star of the technology industry, providing location intelligence services to industries across Australia.
Igor was honoured with the award at Brisbane City Hall on Friday 30th May, at the 2014 Lord Mayor’s Business Dinner.
“I’m incredibly proud to accept this award,” said Igor, “and I’d like to acknowledge the effort from everyone involved with GIS People for helping me and the company get to this point. I could not have achieved this alone – my exceptional team, and our culture of collaboration, are the main reasons for winning this award.”
Lord Mayor Graham Quirk said the annual awards celebrated the contribution Brisbane’s multicultural businesses make to Brisbane’s economy: “The winners of the 2014 awards were selected from an impressive and diverse field of finalists, and embody the qualities of determination, leadership and ambition,” he said. “The achievements of these outstanding individuals act as inspiration for Brisbane’s greater business community.”
