Private Business Growth Award recognizes 10 businesses that look beyond the top line for growth
Aeryon Labs has been announced as a finalist for the 2014 Private Business Growth Award. Presented by Grant Thornton LLP and the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, the award celebrates private businesses that put sustainable growth at the top of their agenda. Ten companies across the country were shortlisted for their ability to achieve growth across five core aspects of their business.
“I want to congratulate all the finalists for being bold enough to look beyond the top line and focus on long-term growth,” said Phil Noble, Executive Partner and Chief Executive Officer, Grant Thornton LLP. “These model private businesses all demonstrate critical skills to ensure sustainable growth, including market development and strategic leadership and as a result, they have built strong companies of which they should be proud. Not only does each of them contribute to the communities in which they operate, they are a source of pride for Canada both at home, and in some cases, abroad.”
Aeryon Labs has been selected as a finalist in two of seven categories (Emerging Exporter and Consumer Products & Technology) for the Ontario Export Awards. The winner of the Ontario Export Awards Exporter of the Year will be selected from the group of finalist companies and announced at the Ontario Export Awards Gala Awards Luncheon on Tuesday, November 25, 2014 in Toronto.
