International Expertise Puts Canberra Company Ahead of the Curve

23 October 2015


Noetic Group’s innovative approach and suite of expertise has earned it the ACT Chief Minister’s Exporting Business Services Award announced last night.

The Award will put the company into the Australian Export Awards at the end of November.

Noetic Chairman Andrew Balmaks said the company was thrilled to be recognised at the local level.

“These awards acknowledge innovation, hard work and success of local businesses and are a great opportunity to celebrate the diverse range of businesses in the Canberra community.

“Noetic worked very hard to make a name for itself within Canberra and beyond. We aim to provide innovative solutions to clients that respond directly to their needs. We are not in the business of putting forward cookie cutter solutions – the work we do for clients is fit for purpose and it is great to have that extra effort recognised,” he said.

Noetic Group works in Australia and internationally in a range of areas – assisting government organisations through to working on reducing major hazard risk in the oil and gas sector, with defence and emergency services and has an increasingly strong foothold in the not for profit and social justice sectors.

Mr Balmaks said the growth of the company’s United States offices had helped build their international reputation.

“Noetic was profiled in USA Today this year, which was a great highlight. They kept spotting the company name in Pentagon documents whenever a scope of work that had significant and challenging issues around it – they wanted to know more about us.

“The US office of the company increased its top line revenue by 400% this year – so there has been a considerable amount of new work flowing through the company; and beyond the US we have worked on major projects in Nigeria and Saudi Arabia this year,” he said.

In the past 12 months Noetic has worked on a diverse range of projects from examining the future of the Middle East beyond the threat of ISIL for the US Central Command to identify potential threats; undertaken a project to reform the education system in Saudi Arabia and provided expert input into the global peak body for Mining and Metals’ Health and Safety Critical Control Management.

Mr Balmaks said being based in Canberra was an advantage to businesses and he expected to see the Awards remain competitive.

“Canberra has everything we need to run our operations in Australia and internationally. The people are smart and talented – and we pride ourselves on employing the best that are available – there is plenty to learn from operating across the government environment, and the city encourages and rewards innovation and entrepreneurialism. We wouldn’t be anywhere else,” Mr Balmaks said.
