Relianz Group celebrated its ninth anniversary at a glittering function at The Wharf on Auckland’s North Shore on Sunday. Relianz Group, which comprises RelianzForex and Relianz Travel, also launched a new company, Relianz Loan Bazaar, at the event.
The group has been celebrating its annual event for the past eight years with its growing numbers of staff as well as business and industry associates. The event essentially is built around honouring and rewarding Relianz staff members for their performance during the year just gone by.
The ninth anniversary event kicked off with a unique classical music performance by three of Auckland’s well-known Indian instrumental exponents: Lester Silver on sitar, Manjit Singh on Tabla and AnandThakore on acoustic mandolin playing the Raag Tilak Kamod.
The sterling performance set the tone for the night as the sun set on the stunning Waitemata outside and the city’s beautiful skyline began to light up across the harbour bridge, which loomed high above the roof of the venue.
The guest of honour for the night was well-known medical professional and multi faceted personality Dr Sharad Paul, internationally recognized author and polymath. Dr Paul delivered a stirring speech and gave away several of the awards. He along with four other guests also lit the ceremonial lamp to symbolically launch the new venture, Relianz Loan Bazaar.
Relianz Group CEO Giri Giridharan delivered his annual address remarking on the successes of the past twelve months and acknowledging the individual efforts of his team of dedicated staff. Earlier, the entire staff assembled at the stage to formally welcome the guests.
As in previous years, the annual day Relianz Quiz proved to be popular, with a vigorous and whole-hearted participation of each and every guest present. This year as well, the quiz was devised and conducted by former Indian Weekender Editor Dev Nadkarni, who was also the master of ceremonies.
The evening concluded with some impromptu speeches by staff members sharing their experiences working with the group before partaking of the sumptuous dinner in the celebratory atmosphere much enhanced by the fine venue.
Mr Giridharan said the Relianz Group was looking forward to the continuing support of its loyal clientele that had followed the Group from the company’s money transfer services through to travel services. “We are now offering financial services through Relianz Loan Bazaar with the same business ethics and high service standards that set Brand Relianz apart. We are really grateful to our clients who have been with us for so long.”
