The Canadian Association of Family Enterprise (CAFE) named Fisher Transport Limited the 2016 Nova Scotia Family Enterprise of the Year (FEYA) at its award luncheon held today at the Holiday Inn Harbourview in Dartmouth. On hand to accept this distinguished award was founder Ken MacDonald and his son Jordan, who is now General Manager for the company. In Ken’s acceptance he credited his wife Pam and their three children for the success of Fisher Transport and said the key ingredient to working effectively with family and staff is to lead by example.
FEYA, sponsored by CAFE NS’ Presenting Sponsor, BMO Financial Group, recognizes significant achievement made within a family enterprise. The MacDonald family from Fisher Transport was profiled along with the Redden family of R&R Pools and saw over 100 guests in attendance to celebrate the accomplishments of these two impressive companies.
