Blundstone-sponsored F3 driver Alex Peroni is the 2020 recipient of the Peter Brock Medal. A proud Tasmanian, Alex has spent 2020 in the Formula 3 Championship, finishing in the top 10 and claiming several impressive podium finishes.

Over the last five years, the growth of our brand has seen our HQ team in Hobart increase by 50%. To support this, we are proud to have recently opened our new innovation and design centre.
Our new architecturally designed hub, affectionately dubbed “C St”, houses our Design, Marketing and Sales teams and is centred around creativity.

Blundstone CEO, Steve Gunn talks about the recent wave of Blundstone's success over the past few years.

With availability now in selected retailers and a strong brand loyalty that it aims to retain as it grows, Gunn mentions the brand has no complacency - “staying true to our distribution partners, retailers and consumers—those who have helped us get to where we are—is critical to how we go forward. We need to prioritize that over rapid growth. It’s served us well so far.”
