Earlier this week, Axial named our very own Chief Operating Officer James Shearer as one of the best and brightest middle-market leaders among a wide variety of North American industries.
This Growth 100 list highlights the accomplishments of executives from middle-market businesses; of which only three individuals, including James, were from outside the United States. Such individuals were recognized in several categories including innovation, brand building, leadership style, customer experience, thought leadership, company culture and growth strategy.
“I love being part of a company where everyone shares a passion for what they do; innovation, challenging the traditional, and not being afraid to try something new are approaches that have allowed us to get to where we are today,” says James. “It is an honour to be recognized for my part in shaping our company, but it is the dedication and fresh thinking each of us brings that is our key to success.”
