Point2 Technologies Wins Achievement In Business Excellence (ABEX) Award

 

Point2 Technologies Inc. (“Point2”) was recognized by the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce with the prestigious Achievement in Business Excellence (ABEX) Award at a dinner gala held recently at TCU Place in Saskatoon, SK. Nearly 700 government and business personalities attended this year’s high profile event, organized by the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce to celebrate the accomplishments of 52 exceptional businesses in the province of Saskatchewan.
 
The annual ABEX Awards program is the largest private sector business awards program in the province of Saskatchewan. Now in its 26th year, the ABEX Awards recognize outstanding Saskatchewan based businesses for excellence in a number of categories. 52 finalists from across the Province contended for the coveted Awards this year, in 14 different categories.
 
Point2 President and co-founder Barry Willick accepted the Award on behalf of Point2, for the Job Creation category. The Award recognizes Point2’s sustained growth between March 2008 and March 2009. During this period, Point2 increased its staff count by nearly 50 percent, in support of its rapidly expanding business.
 
“We dedicate this Award to our relentless, creative and hard working staff members who make Point2 what it is,” said Willick. “The ABEX Award is a great privilege we also owe to the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce, the Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce and our local government for championing an aggressive growth strategy for Saskatchewan and for creating the right environment for business to thrive.”
 
Saul Klein, Point2’s Chief Executive Officer was out of the country and could not attend the ceremony.
 
Commenting from San Diego, Klein said: “We would like to thank and recognize the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce and its leadership for their constant efforts towards making Saskatchewan a business friendly province,” said Saul Klein, Chief Executive Officer, Point2 Technologies Inc. “We are honoured to have been selected for the ABEX Award this year and extend a special thanks to the Chamber of Commerce and the ABEX Awards Committee for organizing this valuable program.”
 
“We applaud the efforts of Point2. Their tremendous growth in a sector not typically associated with Saskatchewan shows the power of out-of-the-box thinking and innovation,” noted Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce CEO, Steve McLellan. “They are a great Saskatchewan success story and truly deserve this award.”
 
Point2’s ABEX accomplishment comes at the heels of the company’s selection to the ‘Top 20 Employers in Saskatchewan for 2010’ earlier this month, as part of a nationally recognized Awards program organized by Mediacorp Canada Inc.
