Dubbo company named in Fast 100 Aussie companies
A REGIONALLY-BASED STEM organisation that has a woman at the helm has been listed in the Australian Financial Review’s Fast 100 companies, announced today.
Regional Enviroscience joins the ranks of previously listed companies that have gone on to become household names, including Boost Juice, Carman’s Fine Foods, Lonely Planet, and Webjet.
With Dubbo entrepreneur Juliet Duffy at the helm, Regional Enviroscience is an Occupational and Environmental Hygiene consultancy, detecting and monitoring a range of contaminants in the air, water, soil and materials.
The Fast 100 is ranked by average revenue growth over four years. Regional Enviroscience now has offices in Dubbo, Wagga, Tamworth, and Maroochydore, Queensland, and employs more than 25 people.
Ms Duffy described it as “typically a male-dominated industry”. The Enviroscience team includes two young women who are both science qualified and Licenced Asbestos Assessors, mentored by Ms Duffy.
“Being a woman in STEM is not without its challenges... however it has never really been a problem (for us).”
