Matti Seikkula won the ‘Professional of the Year’ award at the second annual NZ Spatial Excellence Awards. The awards were formed to recognize excellence in the Spatial Sector. The Awards seek out and give recognition to the best – the high achievers and contributors who set the benchmarks that others will follow.
Matti Seikkula received the prestigious award for Professional of the Year, for his outstanding contribution to the spatial industry over the past nineteen years. Matti has been instrumental in contributing to the growth and maturity of the industry. He has an insatiable appetite for keeping up with technology trends, an ability to see the big picture and a calling to raise the awareness of spatial at an enterprise level.
Matti’s independent, outside-in perspective helps businesses understand the value of spatial and allows him to deliver outcomes for the industry above and beyond the ordinary. He has the knowledge, leadership and vision to help organisations achieve their objectives using spatial.
The awards are a joint initiative between the spatial profession, business and government. They are supported by three founding partners – the Spatial Industry Business Association (SIBA NZ), New Zealand Institute of Surveyors (NZIS), and Land Information New Zealand (LINZ). Matti was presented the award by Mark Allan, New Zealand Institute of Surveyors.
