Singapore, 5 April 2019: eNett International, a leading provider of integrated B2B payment solutions for the travel industry, celebrates taking home two Global Business Excellence Awards (GBEA). The company won the award for the Fastest-Growing Company of the Year, while MD and CEO, Anthony Hynes, was crowned Outstanding Entrepreneur of the Year – marking three consecutive years of winning at the GBEA.
As eNett approaches its 10-year anniversary in June, the company has continued to see phenomenal growth, with last year being no exception. 2018 saw eNett more than double its 2017 revenues, boasting a YoY net revenue growth of 63%. Such outstanding and consistent results would not be possible without CEO and founder, Anthony Hynes, who was named Outstanding Entrepreneur of the Year, in recognition of his experience as a true entrepreneur and leading eNett to global success.
eNett MD and CEO, Anthony Hynes said: “It’s such an honour to be recognised by Global Business Excellence Awards for the third year in a row – and in our 10th anniversary year. Such an achievement is testament to the team’s hard work, who always go the extra mile in everything they do. Without amazing people around me, I’d never have been able to lead eNett from a B2B travel payments challenger to the high-growth industry disruptor it is today.”
Commenting on the award wins, the chairman of the judges said: “Anthony Hynes is a serial entrepreneur with a track record of founding a diverse range of businesses including a childcare group that is now one of the largest in Australia and an international payments company. His current venture eNett International is a disruptive company that has become a highly-valued partner of the world’s largest online travel agents across nearly 50 countries. Congratulations to Anthony Hynes for being an innovative thinker and finding better ways of doing things.”
They continued: “Through the invention of a game-changing, fast, secure way for travel agents to pay their suppliers, eNett International has seen incredible growth since its launch in 2009 and has become a trusted partner of the largest online travel agents. A disruptor of B2B travel payments, eNett has created new efficiencies for the travel industry, and increased staffing to hundreds of people. In 2018, transactions increased by one and half times over the previous year and its growth rate over the past five years is stupendous. Congratulations to eNett for being a leading game-changer and an innovator.”
