The Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce will honour Peter Mullins as the 2017 Volunteer of the Year at the upcoming President’s Excellence Awards on November 15. Sponsored by Maritime Electric Limited, this award recognizes an individual whose time, commitment, and contributions to the Chamber have been outstanding. Individuals were nominated by Chamber members, and the Chamber’s executive committee selects the winner.
Peter Mullins is a native of Cape Breton who moved to PEI in 2003 to take on the role of managing provincial director with Freedom 55 Financial. Shortly after moving to the Island, Peter began volunteering with the Chamber, championing the various activities of the organization. For more than a decade, Peter has supported a variety of Chamber initiatives as a volunteer and an active member. Peter contributed to the Chamber’s annual golf tournament, serving as both a committee member and an event volunteer. He is also a volunteer with the Chamber’s Ambassador Program, giving his time to facilitate connections between new and established members at the Chamber’s Business After Hours socials and various other Chamber events.
In addition to his volunteer work at the Chamber, Peter is a strong supporter of the Children’s Wish Foundation and has volunteered with the organization since 2003. He is also the father of two girls and a proud hockey dad. Peter recently moved into a new role with Investor’s Group in Charlottetown.
“The Chamber truly values and appreciates the many volunteers who give their time and expertise to assist in delivering programs and events to our members,” said Rory Francis, President of the Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce. “With this award we acknowledge Peter’s quiet and modest approach to both his volunteer roles and his many contributions in support of the Chamber.”
The President’s Excellence Awards, sponsored by Atlantic Lottery, takes place Wednesday, November 15th from 6:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. at the Delta Prince Edward.
