VICTORIAVILLE FUNERAL SUPPLIES INC. FINALIST AS
50 BEST MANAGED COMPANIES IN CANADA
Alain Dumont, President of Victoriaville Funeral Supplies Inc. is proud to announce that his company has been recognized as a regional (Quebec) finalist of Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies Program.
"Established in 1993, Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies is the country's leading business awards program, recognizing excellence in Canadian-owned and managed companies. Every year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates the calibre of their management abilities and practices "said Sylvain Hébert, Vice-President Finance of the company.
"Being a regional finalist to this recognized awards program is an achievement by itself. I dedicate this honour to our entire workforce, who totally deserve it, but more specifically to my friend and colleague, Alain Brown, who recently died from cancer. Alain was a respected member of our company having been responsible for many successful initiatives instrumental to this nomination" said Alain Dumont.
"We hope this nomination will be viewed as yet another example of our commitment to maintaining our position as Canada's premier provider in the manufacturing and distribution of funeral supplies and to continue to clearly demonstrate why for over 60 years and for many more to come the name Victoriaville has been and will be synonymous with leadership in the funeral industry throughout Canada and the United States,'' said Tom Ross, National Sales Manager of the company.
"Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies Gala and Symposium will be held in Toronto on March 8, 2010 and we hope to receive The Best Managed designation which is a recognizable stamp of excellence" reiterated Sylvain Hébert.
