Last night the Windsor Essex Chamber of Commerce hosted the 28th annual Windsor-Essex Business Excellence Awards and Active Business Services was a proud attendant at the fantastic event. Held in downtown Windsor at the St.Clair Centre for the Arts this was the perfect venue for celebrating hard fought and well earned accomplishments.
The prestigious awards celebrated business leaders, innovators and community leaders alike and
showcased the best of what our local business community represents.
It was also nice to see some of our clients who we provide electricity and natural gas solutions being recognized! It demonstrates once again, that growing, innovative and smart companies are seeking out a better way to manage their energy commodities with the help of Active Business Services. As our presence and market share continues to expand in this the Windsor-Essex region and in Ontario as a whole, we will always strive to support our community. Here is Laurie Veres, Regional Director for Active Business Services (Photo on the right) with her husband Brian Veres.
Congratulations to all of the businesses and individual that were nominated and awarded!
