Montreal, Quebec and New York, NY (PRWEB) March 24, 2007
Rideau Recognition Solutions, Inc., North America's leading provider of Web-based recognition, loyalty and incentive based solutions programs, announced the planned retirement of Cameron Ferguson. Cam has been President of the company since 1982. Cam's vision and leadership have propelled Rideau in becoming one of the fastest growing recognition companies in Canada.
Having worked with Rideau for 38 years, Cam has extensive experience in the awards industry. With a background in manufacturing, marketing and administration, his skill and expertise has helped direct Rideau in providing service recognition programs, corporate products and performance award programs. While the retirement will take place at the end of April this year, Cam plans to remain a part of Rideau's future by retaining his seat on Rideau's Board of Directors.
"As each day passes and the last date starts to get closer I have many mixed emotions. While I am excited and happy to start the next phase in my life, I know that I am going to really miss each and everyone of you here at our Rideau Family" Ferguson said. "Gilles Michaud and Jonathan Hart will be assuming my responsibilities and I am confident that they will make the transition as seamless as possible. It has been an honor and a pleasure to have been here at Rideau with you each day."
Rideau employees will always remember his down to earth personality, open door policy and belief that all employees contributed to the success of the 'Rideau Family.'
Cam's significant contribution to Rideau's success is echoed by all employees none more strongly than Rideau Chairman Emeritus, Mr. Ed Hart: "I can't say enough about Cam, during my years at Rideau, Cam was always my right-hand man, not to mention like an adopted son to me. I have always known him to dedicate himself completely to any challenge he undertakes, a trait that has been invaluable to Rideau over the years and will likely bring him much success in his new endeavors."
As for what the future holds for Rideau's retired president; he has no intention of slowing down. Plans include pursuing his long time passion for cycling at home and abroad.
