2009 Telstra Business Woman of the Year Award &  Telstra Business Owner Award

Cowell Electric Supply Managing Director Susan Chase won the coveted prize at the annual Telstra Business Women's Awards. She attributes the success of her Eyre Peninsula powerline construction business - which provides powerline, water, gas and communication infrastructure systems to remote and regional Australia - to her commitment to make it through the tough times.

Sue, who also won the Business Owner Award, said she had overcome her share of adversity on her way to commercial success. She purchased the SA Business of Cowell Electric in 2000 when it was close to liquidation. Five years later she proved her determination by injecting more capital. The move ensured the company's survival despite tough competition from larger energy providers. In her time at the helm of the company, the business has quadrupled sales, lifted profitability and now employs 35 people.
