Mississauga, ON. January 17, 2013. Jon Hantho, President & CEO of Maxxam Analytics, received a Special Citation for Entrepreneurial Leadership at the National Entrepreneur Of The Year® Awards ceremony in Toronto last night. This recognition comes on the heels of winning the Services category at the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® Awards in Ontario in October 2012.

The Special Citation recognizes Jon’s success in various leadership roles over the course of his career. It honours his outstanding reputation for business leadership and his determination to adapt, learn, lead and succeed in every role he undertakes, including his current position as President and CEO of Maxxam, which he has held for over six years.

“This Special Citation for Entrepreneurial Leadership is a real honour,” Jon said. “I believe firmly that commitment is crucial for anyone who aspires to be a leader, and this goes beyond commitment to the job itself. A true leader has to be willing to continuously evolve and improve. A key part of that process is to surround yourself with great people, and I have been fortunate throughout my career to have been working with extremely talented individuals. Our leadership team at Maxxam is nothing short of exceptional. Together we constantly learn and grow as leaders, to the benefit of the business, of our employees, and especially of our customers.”
