The Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce it will honour Kevin Murphy with the Entrepreneur of the Year Award at the 10th annual President’s Excellence Awards in Charlottetown. Sponsored by Provincial Credit Union, this award recognizes an individual who truly exemplifies the entrepreneurial spirit in our community. Individuals were nominated by Chamber members, and the Chamber’s executive committee selected the winner.
Murphy Hospitality Group served over 700,000 customers in 2014 and continues to expand, including to new operations in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Murphy credits his success to his family – wife Kathy and sons Ben, Sam and Isaac – and to these basic principles: friendly and knowledgeable staff, great food and beer, clean and comfortable locations and providing an extraordinary experience.
“Kevin truly reflects the characteristics of the Entrepreneur of the Year,” said Wendy Drake, President of the Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce. “His list of businesses is impressive, he remains at the cutting edge in his respective industries and he is known as a generous and supportive mentor to many aspiring entrepreneurs.”
The 10th annual President’s Excellence Awards will take place Wednesday, November 4th, from 6:00 –9:30 p.m. at the Delta Prince Edward. The Chamber holds the event each year to recognize business excellence in the community.
Tickets are available online at www.charlottetownchamber.com, or through the Chamber office at 902-628-2000. The event is sponsored by Bell Aliant, with media sponsorship from Ocean 100, Hot 105.5 and The Guardian.
