Queenslanders shine on AIM30 young managers list
The Australian Institute of Management has launched its latest list of outstanding young management talent with the national release of the AIM30.
The AIM30 is one of Australia’s most prestigious listings of industry leaders under the age of 30, who are making a mark on the management profession. A third of this year's recipients hale from Queensland.
AIM was inundated with applications from young managers across Australia who wanted to be featured on the list and the final 30 was the end result of a stringent internal recruitment process.
This year’s list follows the inaugural list in 2013 which consisted of young managers based only in Queensland the Northern Territory. So successful was that campaign that AIM decided to go national in 2014.
The AIM30 is a list of individuals who have excelled in their chosen professions and an essential strategy in the future of the recently merged national AIM according to its Group Chief Executive Officer Daniel Musson FAIM.
“AIM has a long and proud of history of supporting young managers and graduates,” Mr Musson said. “This initiative focuses on the future of business. For an organisation like AIM to remain relevant, we need to actively engage with young people and support them on their management journeys, from the cradle to the grave.
“Young managers understand exactly what people in their demographic want out of their managers and careers and we look forward to learning from this outstanding group of young people.
“The 2013 AIM30 was a resounding success and I have no doubt the 2014 list are the future leaders of our society and we are proud to be associated with them.”
Queensland leads the list in terms of representation with 11 managers from that state making the list. Victorian managers feature prominently with nine representatives on the list while four South Australian managers made the final cut.
The list also features three Western Australians and one representative each from Sydney, Tasmania and the Northern Territory.
