CALGARY, Sept. 18, 2014 /CNW/ - Scout Communications is proud and pleased to announce that its president, Lois Lockwood, has been ranked among Canada's Top Female Entrepreneurs in this year's PROFIT/Chatelaine W100 listing.
"It's a great honor to be included in such a prestigious listing with other successful and prominent businesswomen," said Lockwood. "It's also satisfying to know that all the hard work and effort we've put into making Scout a leading marketing and communications company is being publicly recognized."
The Profit W100 ranks Canada's Top Female Entrepreneurs on a composite score based on the size, growth rate and profitability of their businesses. Published in the November issues of PROFIT and Chatelaine magazines, this listing is Canada's largest annual celebration of entrepreneurial achievement by women.
"This year's W100 represent the absolute best of Canada's business community," said James Cowan, Editor-in-chief of Canadian Business and PROFIT. "Female entrepreneurs are too often stereotyped as 'mompreneurs' pursuing part-time hobby businesses. But the W100 demonstrate just how vital they are to driving innovation and growth in the Canadian economy."
"For me to be recognized in this way is gratifying," said Lockwood. "But my success comes from surrounding myself with a hard working, innovative team that's dedicated to making Scout Communications second to none when it comes to offering our clients high quality service."
