April 9, 2018 – “Entrepreneur” and “60-year-old company” are not usually found in the same sentence, so congratulations to Gerrie Electric Wholesale Ltd. co-presidents Heather Gerrie-Kwant and Elaine Gerrie-Valentini, who will receive the 2018 Distinguished Entrepreneur Award from the Burlington Chamber of Commerce.

They were selected as this year’s award recipients to recognize their leadership role in “building a successful, high-profile company that positively represents Burlington [Ontario] both locally and regionally,” says the chamber, while reflecting “entrepreneurship through their company and through their philanthropic endeavours…”
The award will be presented at a special dinner in the fall.
