"This company sells itself as solid like a big telco but has managed to sustain the spunky attitude of a startup," said Anthill founder James Tuckerman, at the Sixth Annual Cool Company Award in Melbourne on Thursday.
Zach Nelson is CEO of NetSuite. He was named one of the 10 Visionary CEOs of 2008 by InternetNews.com, after guiding the company through its 2007 IPO.

At this year's Cool Company Awards, category winners were presented with a trophy that could be described as Australia’s biggest award in business — a 1.2 metre, individually branded bean-bag. Produced by Ambient Lounge, a winner in Anthill's SMART 100 earlier this year, the nine bean-bags, each branded with the award's logo and the category winner's name and accolade, were described by Anthill Editor-In-Chief as "perfect for the office, reception, pool room... or boudoir."
