For Immediate Release

President and COO of Eagle Recognized by PROFIT, Canadian Business and Chatelaine

Ottawa, ON, September 18, 2014 – Eagle Professional Resources Inc. (Eagle) is proud to announce that Janis Grantham, President and COO of the professional staffing company, ranked 21 in the 16th annual W100 ranking of Canada’s Top Female Entrepreneurs, produced by PROFIT, Canadian Business and Chatelaine. This marks the 10th consecutive year that the company’s co-founder has been named in the W100 ranking.

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 October issue of Canadian Business, the November issue of Chatelaine and online at PROFITguide.com and chatelaine.com, the W100 is Canada’s largest annual celebration of entrepreneurial achievement by women.

“It’s an honour once again to be named among so many of Canada’s great female business leaders,” commented Grantham. “Congratulations to all and thank you PROFIT, Canadian Business and Chatelaine for continuing to recognize our country’s entrepreneurs and role models.”

“This year’s W100 represent the absolute best of Canada’s business community,” said James Cowan, Editor-in-chief of Canadian Business and PROFIT. “Female entrepreneurs are too often stereotyped as ‘mompreneurs’ pursuing part-time hobby businesses. But the W100 demonstrates just how vital they are to driving innovation and growth in the Canadian economy.”

Grantham co-founded Eagle in September 1996 and has been instrumental in the company’s growth of 10 employees and $10 million in revenue to approximately 100 employees $140 million in revenue. In addition to the W100, she has been named one of Canada’s Top 100 Powerful Women and Business Woman of the Year in the Consumer’s Choice Awards.
