2016 Peter Perry & Business Achievement Awards
A celebration of excellence, an evening of inspiration

Whitby, Ont. – Community and business leaders gathered to celebrate the best of Whitby at the 2016 Peter Perry & Business Achievement Awards. The event was held on November 17 at Deer Creek Golf & Banquet Facility and began with BANG! The awards ceremony was hosted by long-time friend of the Chamber, Dan Carter. Video clips introduced the sponsors, each category and nominee. These pre-recorded pieces allowed nominees to answer questions which gave the audience a glimpse into their motivation and achievements. Special thank you to Maddox Media for creating these spectacular videos.


And the 2016 Peter Perry Award goes to ....


Mary Nurse from Nurse Chevrolet Cadillac! Mary Nurse is a true visionary when it comes to business – not only from an organizational perspective, so said her teachers, but also in terms of developing colleagues, team members and employees. Always encouraging others to succeed and grow; providing constant support and leadership. Her journey into the family business began in the late 90s after completing the Automotive Studies program at Georgian College and the National Automobile Dealers Association Dealer Academy. Her accomplishments as a business person are too many to count and her commitment to and involvement in our community are numerous. She is known across this region as a community and business leader, tireless volunteer, mentor, supporter and friend. She is cherished as a daughter, sister, and mother. The Whitby Chamber of Commerce is honoured to highlight incredible community leaders like Mary every year at the Peter Perry & Business Achievement Awards.
