Saint John, NB – June 18, 2018 – We are thrilled to announce that we have been named Exporter of the Year for exceeding $5 million in export sales by Opportunities NB at the 52nd annual Export NB Awards gala. The award is given in recognition of all-around excellence in export sales while demonstrating outstanding product developments, innovations, and solid market diversification.
In his acceptance speech, InteliSys Aviation’s president, Wayne Chamberlain, started by thanking the team: “I’m responsible for one percent of the success that this company has. We have a great team – and it’s been growing,” he stated, reflecting on the dedication of the InteliSys family before going on to discuss his time with the company starting in 2013.
“We bought the company from a set of local investors and, since then, the business has more than doubled. A big part of that is getting the right people on our team and pointing them in the right direction,” he said.
The award, Chamberlain said, is validation that we’re heading in the right direction. It’s important that small businesses take the time to make local connections and recognize one another’s accomplishments – that New Brunswick has demonstrated potential for world-class success. But exporting products and services internationally takes passion, devotion, and monumental determination.
“We feel like we’re just getting started and that it’s important that everyone in New Brunswick feels that way,” Chamberlain said about InteliSys, “and hopefully we all feel that there’s so much more work left to do and that we have energy for the fight. So, to all the nominees and business people in this room who work tirelessly, I salute you. I feel encouraged by you.”
