Message from the Chair

Ed Zacharuk

2012 was a very exciting year for the BC Export Awards! We celebrated our 30th Anniversary, reflecting on some great achievements in export history and highlighted some rising stars on the export scene from all over the province. We had a great turnout with Minister Pat Bell delivering the keynote speech and the Leadership Award was given to Ryan Holmes of HootSuite.

Our Finalists and Winners for 2012 continue to demonstrate their unwavering commitment to the growth of the province’s economy and have further strengthened our position in the global marketplace.

We look forward to the 2013 program, as we do every year. It is such a pleasure to recognize the outstanding work of our BC companies and identify the global reach of this province's goods and services. Please consider nominating BC-based companies that you know to be outstanding in their industries and deserving of a nomination. If you are interesting in becoming a sponsor to show your support for the exporting industry, please contact us.
