Looking back on Smartgroup’s awesome 2015


-® Will Salkeld_Smartgroup Xmas_95

Celebrating the end of a terrific year with Smartgroup’s high achievers.

We recently concluded our national breakfast series for 2015, where we showcased for our clients the tremendous efforts of our team. We had such a positive reception that we thought we’d share with you some of these announcements.

  • We renewed our partnership with six-time V8 Supercars Champion Jamie Whincup as Smartleasing’s brand ambassador for a second year in 2016.
  • Smartgroup recently completed a 50% acquisition of Health-e Workforce Solutions, which provides a unique software solution that helps hospitals across the country better and more cost-effectively manage their workforce.
  • We launched our new Smartsalary website, written from the ground up and taking us one step closer to enabling our customers to manage virtually all their packaging affairs, whether on desktop, tablet or smartphone.

Aside from what we covered at the breakfasts, we achieved some significant milestones in 2015. We renewed major salary packaging contracts, including Department of Defence and Australian Tax Office, and we won additional salary packaging contracts, including Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, NSW Health Pathology, and South Eastern Sydney Local Health District.

And we ended the year with a real bang, completing the acquisition of Advantage Salary Packaging, a company we have long admired for their incredible client retention, and as we have come to learn, even more, incredible staff retention. We warmly welcome Anton Gaudry (cofounder and now CEO of Advantage Salary Packaging) and his team to the Smartgroup family.

We’ve had a terrific year, in this our first full year as an ASX-listed company (ASX: SIQ). I would like to thank everyone who has helped make it such a success: our incredibly loyal employer clients and employee customers, our innovation-minded business partners, and our supportive shareholders. I’d also like to thank the team here at Smartgroup who have continued to rise to the challenge of building a bigger and better company, year in and year out for a decade and a half now!

Best wishes for a festive holiday season to you and your families! We look forward to connecting again in the New Year.
