On July 30, 2015, Peter Wyatt was announced as the winner of the Technology Entrepreneur Of The Year (Northern Region) award in Ernst & Young’s (EY) prestigious 2015 Australia Entrepreneur of the Year (EOY) competition. Wyatt, representing Record Holdings, has long been considered a serial entrepreneur and was chosen because of his use of technology to innovate the digital court recording industry. Wyatt competed in a very difficult category among other top industry professionals and was recognized at a ceremony this past Thursday at the heritage-listed Brisbane City Hall.
Wyatt, CEO of Record Holdings, which is comprised of sister companies For The Record and Auscript Australasia, has remained invested in researching and developing new ways to improve the way and speed in which parties access the court record.
After purchasing Auscript in 2004 and For The Record in 2013, he along with co-founder and President Tony Douglass completely re-engineered the court recording and transcript production process. Both companies are now leading their respective industries with innovation under the strong vision provided by Wyatt and Douglass.
On his selection, competition judges said, “Record Holdings has disrupted the market in Australia and has a solid plan to extend the business model to overseas markets.”
Wyatt will now move on to the National Competition taking place in Sydney on October 15, 2015. The Australian National Winner will then move on to the global program next year in Monte Carlo to compete against other National winners from more than 60 countries for the title of EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year.
