Gore Mutual was presented the prestigious Chairs Award at the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce‘s 2019 Business Excellence Awards in March.
Now in its 19th year, the annual Business Excellence Awards spotlight organizations in Cambridge, Ontario making outstanding contributions that impact the city’s business development, economic growth and diversity.
“The awards are our way of recognizing how much our business leaders do for this region,” said Cambridge Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Greg Durocher. “The calibre of our business community talent is something we should all be very proud of and celebrate.”
The Chairs Award was the final prize presented during the Business Excellence Awards ceremony and recognizes exceptional effort in going above and beyond in the areas of business and community development. When announcing Gore Mutual as the winner, the award judges described our organization as “one of Cambridge’s most unique and favoured businesses” and talked about the economic value that we’ve contributed to the entire community. They went on to say that Gore Mutual “is leading the way in its own industry” and praised our commitment to giving back, noting that throughout our history we have been driven by what matters most – people.
Gore Mutual is Canada’s oldest property and casualty insurer. This year marks our 180th year in business and we have called Cambridge home for nearly 160 of those years.
“We are honoured to receive this recognition from the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce,” said Heidi Sevcik, President and CEO at Gore Mutual. “We are incredibly proud to be a part of our local community and to represent Cambridge across Canada. In recent years, we have worked hard to transform nearly every part of our business by investing in our local talent, customer service, products and technology. These changes will help us continue to deliver meaningful positive change for our partners, customers and communities as we prepare for the next 180 years.”
