MONTREAL, QC—Ernst & Young LLP has named Tecsys Inc. President and CEO Peter Brereton an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2019 Quebec Award winner in the Technology category. Entrepreneur Of The Year® recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Brereton was recognized for his achievements by an independent panel of judges, and the award was presented at a special black-tie gala on November 7, 2019.
“I’m deeply humbled to receive this distinction from EY,” expresses Brereton. “Although it’s my name on the award, it belongs equally to our incredible team here and around the world. As I reflect on where Tecsys began some 35 years ago in my brother’s basement, to the global software provider it is today, I am so proud of the reputation we have been able to preserve throughout its continued growth and expansion.”
Considered one of the most prestigious business awards programs globally, the program recognizes leaders of high-growth companies who are excelling in business and transforming the world.
Brereton initially led the company’s software development, product management, sales and marketing. In 1998, he was appointed CEO and was largely responsible for the company’s Initial Public Offering.
Under Brereton’s stewardship, Tecsys has grown into a global provider of supply chain execution technology recognized as a “Visionary” by Gartner Inc. in its Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems, a position Tecsys has held since its first inclusion in 2010.
