Toronto, ON, October 15, 2013 – Eagle Professional Resources (Eagle) is proud to announce that Chief Operating Officer, Janis Grantham, ranked #13 on the 15th annual W100 ranking of Canada’s Top Female Entrepreneurs, produced by PROFIT Magazine and Chatelaine. This is the 12th consecutive year that the professional staffing company’s co-founder has been named at the top of the list.
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 November issue of PROFIT and the December issue of Chatelaine and online at PROFITguide.com and chatelaine.com, the W100 is Canada’s largest annual celebration of entrepreneurial achievement by women.
“This year’s W100 are a dream group of ambitious, forward–‐thinking entrepreneurs who defy outdated notions of female entrepreneurship,” said Ian Portsmouth, Publisher and Editor‐in‐Chief of PROFIT. “They are running sophisticated and sizeable businesses in challenging industries, and finding new ways to operate and innovate for growth and sustainability.”
“It’s an honour to once again be included on the list among so many prominent Canadian business women,” said Grantham. “In my case, Eagle’s success is the result of the commitment and dedication of the entire Eagle team who work tirelessly to ensure that we are continually meeting and exceeding the expectations of our clients. I am happy to accept the recognition on behalf of the team.”
Grantham was part of a small group who founded Eagle in September 1996. In the last 17 years, she has been instrumental in the growth of the company to over $140M in revenue and 100 employees across 10 offices in Canada. In addition, Eagle has been named one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed companies every year since 1999 and was awarded one of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures for 2012.
