“It’s an honour just to be among those companies. To actually win the award is just– I’m still a little bit in shock,” said Andrew de Boer, who has operated the London franchise since 2003.
The other two finalists in the category were Marketing Strategies and Solutions, and Studio H Artist Group.
Heather Wenman purchased Studio H from her four investors back in 2014 and relocated the business to their current location on Ann Street.
Wenman joined forces with the Green Circle team making Studio H the first environmentally friendly salon in London.
“Working very, very hard as a North American ambassador to make sure that we’re all equally responsible and making our products more sustainable, less packaging, giving back to our clients when they bring back their recyclables we actually give a refund for that,” said Wenman.
Hangar 9 by Fisher & Company took home the award for companies with more than 10 employees. C & V Income Tax Services and Talbot Market Inc. were the other two finalists.
Dr. Vipul Jairath, Director of Academic Research at Robarts Clinical Trials, was the keynote speaker at Wednesday`s breakfast awards. He spoke to the more than 300 attendees at the DoubleTree by Hilton hotel about the importance of integrity in clinical trials.
