W100 2015

Ottawa, ON, May 21, 2015Eagle Professional Resources Inc. (Eagle) is proud to announce that President and Chief Operating Officer, Janis Grantham, is listed among Canada’s top female entrepreneurs. The achievement was announced today in the 17th annual W100 ranking of Canada’s Top Female Entrepreneurs, produced by PROFIT and Chatelaine.

Ranking Canada’s Top Female Entrepreneurs on a composite score based on the size, growth rate and profitability of their businesses, the W100 profiles the country’s most successful female business owners. Published in the June issue of Canadian Business and online at PROFITguide.com and chatelaine.com, the W100 is Canada’s largest annual celebration of entrepreneurial achievement by women.

“You need a bold vision, an innovative strategy and loads of tenacity to earn a spot on the W100,” said James Cowan, Editor-­‐in-­‐chief of PROFIT and Canadian Business. “Every person on this list represents the pinnacle of business success in Canada. Their stories are inspiring and instructive for those seeking to excel as an entrepreneur.”

Grantham, a co-founder of Eagle in 1996, has played a significant role in Eagle’s substantial growth over the past 18 years.  Starting as a small IT staffing company with three offices and 10 employees, Eagle is now a full service professional staffing company with 10 offices across Canada, over 100 employees.  The company has won multiple additional awards, including one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies every year since 1999, one of Canada’s 10 Most Admired Corporate Cultures and, most recently, one of Canada’s Best Workplaces.

“It is an honour to be recognized in the W100 ranking again this year.  Our phenomenal team at Eagle has risen to the challenge of growing profitably, and we’re very proud of our success,” said Grantham. “Congratulations to all other female entrepreneurs on this year’s list and thank you to PROFIT and Chatelaine for continuing to recognizing these contributions to Canadian business.”
