Integrity Post Structures’ Jerry Myer nominated for Profit Magazine’s National 2012 FuEL Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards
Jerry Myer, partner at Integrity Post Structures based in Okotoks, Alberta, has just been nominated for Profit Magazine’s 2012 FuEL Awards for young entrepreneurs.
Celebrating Canada’s future entrepreneurial leaders, the FuEL Awards will honour the achievements and aspirations of entrepreneurs under the age of 30, identify role models for progressive business practices and inspire youth to make entrepreneurship their number one career choice.
“I’m thrilled to be nominated,” says Myer. “I know our company has been on the right track with an old-fashioned approach to customer service and, at the same time, constantly looking to innovate and improve our product.”
Since opening just four years ago, Integrity Post Structures has achieved rapid growth. From erecting 90 buildings in their first year, they are currently on track to building close to 300 buildings across Western Canada in 2012.
They lead the Canadian post frame industry with innovation and are the exclusive Canadian distributor for the patented Perma-Column. This precast concrete column is the only product that allows for a concrete foundation on post frame building in Canada. Today, more than 50 percent of their buildings are built with Perma-Columns
But to win, Jerry needs your vote. Votes from the general public will count for 20% of each candidate’s total score, with the remainder determined by a panel of judges.
Anyone—you, your family, friends and business contacts—can vote for him online.
