Aboriginal Business Award
Jonathan Smith and his wife Prue Plowright from Wattnow Electrical, Derby were first time entrants in the WA Regional Small Business Awards and travelled from the far north of the state to attend the event. They were delighted to win the Aboriginal business category.
Jonathan started his business not long after completing his apprenticeship in Derby, and in 2014, his wife Prue became co-owner and director. Together they grew the business from two employees to more than eight today. Wattnow Electrical provides services to domestic and commercial customers across the Kimberley. This category was sponsored by Fortescue Metals Group.
