Mr Bhatia is also a finalist in the managing director category, up against six others including Xero Australia MD Trent Innes and Menulog Australia and New Zealand MD Alistair Venn.

“[Mr Bhatia] is a great example of a leader who truly cares for his employees and is passionate about creating a great place for people to work,” the magazine’s CEO and founder Chris Dutton told
