Richmond’s top business performers were recognized last week at the 38th Annual Business Excellence Awards hosted by the Richmond Chamber of Commerce in partnership with title sponsor TD.

“Richmond is home to some of the most remarkable organizations in Metro Vancouver and the finalists and recipients this year were a testament to that,” said Rob Akimow, Chair of the Richmond Chamber of Commerce.

  “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,” he added.

There were nine categories, along with the induction of one Hall of Fame member. ‘Man about Town’ Fred Lee guided the event as Emcee, entertaining more than 300 guests at the River Rock Show Theatre.

The audience at the event truly embraced social media, pushing the hashtag #BEA2015 to the number one spot on the trending list for Metro Vancouver.
