Outstanding Local Businesses Recognized at the Richmond Chamber of Commerce 37th Annual Business Excellence Awards

Richmond, B.C. – On the evening of Thursday November 27, 2014, the Richmond Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the City of Richmond, and title partner TD, recognized the top business performers in Richmond at the 37th Annual Business Excellence Awards. 27 finalists, who all call Richmond home, were judged in nine categories, along with one Hall of Fame inductee. The Master of Ceremonies was ‘Man about Town’ Fred Lee who guided over 320 guests through a fantastic evening at the River Rock Casino Resort.


Richmond is a vibrant economic force – and I am honoured to be the Chair of the Board for the 37th Annual Business Excellence Awards,” said Gerard Edwards, Chair of the Richmond  Chamber of Commerce. “This awards ceremony has been the signature business event in Richmond for nearly four decades, and has recognized countless employers and innovators who have put Richmond on the international stage. This year we received over one hundred nominations.  We had an extremely difficult task of dropping down to 27 finalists, only to face the most demanding predicament of all, selecting final award recipients and inductees. Thank you on behalf of the Richmond Chamber Board for making these decisions so difficult for our judges. We look forward to the challenge of doing it again next year.”
