TORONTO, ON – Redwood Classics has announced that Alex Wong, Business Development Manager, has been selected as one of this year’s Promotional Products of Canada (PPPC) Momentum Award Winners.
“Dynamic leader”, “propelling the industry forward”, “driven”, “creative”, “making a difference” are just some of the criteria for making the award’s shortlist. As a winner, Alex has been recognized as one of the promotional products industry’s best and brightest. He accepts this award just three years following Redwood Classics’ Founder and President Kathy Cheng’s 2012 win.
“I grew up in this industry,” said WONG. “My mother’s first job in Canada was with WS & Co., the factory that produces Redwood Classics. In many ways, accepting this award – alongside some of our industry’s most dynamic individuals – is like coming full circle. To say that I am proud is an understatement.”
“In an industry that has taken a predominantly offshore direction, Alex has dedicated his career to pushing the made-in-Canada envelope that our company is known for on the international stage,” said CHENG. “Alex has a unique understanding of the difficulties, threats and challenges that face Canadian manufacturers and has tailored his leadership approach accordingly. By mentoring and hiring Canadian students, he has directly contributed to the creation of jobs and growth in the manufacturing industry. We are extremely fortunate to have him on our team.”
Alex will be acknowledged for this massive achievement on January 27, 2016 at the annual PPPC Image Awards Ceremony.
