2015 Industry Builder Hall of Fame Inductee
Ken LeGault, President, Legault Companies Ltd.
Introductory Speech from John Le Roy:
Good evening Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is an honour to introduce our Hall of Fame inductee in the industry builder category.
Over a career that has spanned more than 30 years, our inductee has made significant contributions to the key general contractors before striking out on his own in 2001.
Throughout, he has provided a full range of services and acquired knowledge about virtually every facet of the supply side of the business. His generous and mentoring spirit and easy manner makes him a show manager's best ally.
His love of the industry is evident and he always seems to be everyone's friend. Our nominee is ethical, trustworthy and one of the hardest working people you will ever meet. He continues to be the first person on the show floor and the last to leave, taking pride in the work he has completed. Rest assured, this is not a seasoned professional who rests on his laurels. He continues to support our association by driving memberships and attending the CAEM conference yearly. You can always spot him on the dance floor - He is the last to leave.
Instrumental in growing the exposition industry in eastern Canada, our inductee is a true industry builder, who truly deserves to be recognized for his accomplishments. On a personal note, having known him for more than 30 years, it is an honour to call him a colleague, but more importantly, a true friend.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you, Ken LeGault, our newest inductee into the hall of fame.
Acceptance Speech by Ken LeGault:
WHAT CAN I SAY?
WHAT AN HONOUR YOU HAVE BESTOWED UPON ME.
UNFORTUNATELY BECAUSE OF STORMS HERE IN NEW BRUNSWICK AND 3 SHOWS IN THE NEXT 5 DAYS, I CANNOT BE THERE TO ACCEPT THIS VERY PRESTIGIOUS AWARD IN PERSON.
I WOULD LIKE TO THANK JOHN LEROY FOR NOMINATING ME AND I WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE AWARDS COMMITTEE FOR GIVING ME THE AWARD.
I HAVE BEEN IN THE INDUSTRY SINCE 1980 AND A MEMBER OF CAEM SINCE 1986.
I ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT SINCE WE ARE OUT OF THE ONTARIO CIRCLE THAT WE WOULD NEVER BE NOTICED FOR AN AWARD. HOW WRONG I WAS.
SO ALL OF YOU OUT THERE, KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOTICED AND KEEP ON DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING.
ALWAYS PROMOTE CAEM AS IT IS A GREAT ASSOCIATION.
ONCE AGAIN, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
