G’DAY NEW YORK: There was a bit of Down Under downtown last Friday night, when hundreds of guests journeyed to Cipriani Wall Street for the American Australian Association’s annual Australia Day gala. The black-tie event, presented by sponsors including National Australia Bank, Woolmark and G’Day USA, honored Anthony Pratt, chief executive officer and chairman of Pratt Industries, for his business accomplishments and commitment to environmental causes in the United States. Pratt Industries is one of the largest paper and packaging companies in the U.S.
“In the U.S., we employ 3,500 people in green-collar jobs, making us the largest Australian employer in America,” said Pratt. “Our company has sales of $1 billion in the U.S., and we plan to invest a further $1 billion over the next decade.”
Comedian Rove McManus led the ceremonies. A three-time winner of a Gold Logie Award as Most Popular Personality on Australian Television, McManus responded to his enthusiastic welcome by saying, “Thanks, everyone, for pretending to know who I am.”
