Shorcan's James Magee is Meritus Catholic Business Person of the Year

    TORONTO, Jan. 21 /CNW/ - Shorcan President and CEO James Magee has been
named this year's Meritus Catholic Business person of the Year. Meritus is a
not-for-profit organization that provides networking opportunities for
Catholic business people. Every year the organization honours a business
person who they believe lives out Christian values in their personal and
professional life. "It's a bit of a catch-22. Part of being a Catholic is
understanding humility. How can you be Catholic and understand humility and be
put on stage, but it's a balance we have to have," said Mr. Magee.
    "Jim is a wonderful person, a great role model and has done a lot of work
in the business community," said Meritus chairman Bernie Wilson. Mr. Wilson
said Magee's generosity set him apart. "He's been really generous with his
time and time is very important. Busy people don't have a lot of time. He
stands out for that reason." Mr. Magee is the former Toronto chapter president
for Legatus, an organization for top-ranking business leaders started by Tom
Monaghan, founder of the Domino's Pizza chain. He was instrumental in
earmarking $1 million to the 2008 Eucharistic Congress in Quebec City, said
John Young, Legatus membership chair. Also, during Magee's tenure as
president, membership increased by 50 per cent, from 20 to 30 members, in part
due to his leadership. "This is a guy where faith and family come ahead of
business," said Young. "He's an inspiration to all of us." Mr. Magee is the
seventh recipient of the Meritus award. The award dinner was held January 17
at the National Club in downtown Toronto.
