The Chamber of Commerce for Greater Moncton celebrated the winners of its 37th annual Business Excellence Awards at a gala event Tuesday at Moncton’s Delta by Marriott Beauséjour.
This year, the chamber named Jim Dixon Business Person of the Year.

Dixon, Chief Financial Officer of Ashford Properties, a commercial leasing and development company, holds a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics from Mount Allison University and is a member of the board with Young Impact Jeunesse and Downtown Moncton Centre-Ville Inc.

This year’s winners were chosen from a list of 55 nominees in ten categories and include:

  • Luxe Salon (Young Entrepreneur)
  • Beyond 202/20 Optometry (Emerging Business)
  • ALIVE Kombucha (Environmental Excellence)
  • Surreal Design Studio Inc. (Newcomer Entrepreneur)
  • D.A.S. Concrete Countertops Inc. (Innovation)
  • BGC Moncton (Non-Profit Organization of the Year)
  • Accor (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion)
  • Hive Engineering Limited (Excellence in Business for Small and Medium Enterprise)
  • Greystone Energy Systems (Excellence in Business)
  • Hospice New Brunswick (People’s Choice).

This year’s event, the first of its kind since the pandemic forced the last two galas to go virtual to respect health mandates, was “Back to the Ballroom.”

Moncton Chamber CEO John Wishart expressed gratitude to celebrate in person for the first time since 2019. It’s been a tough year, he says, as the business community continues to recover since the pandemic.

“Fallout from the pandemic, rising costs, supply chain and workforce issues, as well as social issues have weighed heavy on our business community,” said Wishart in a release.

“We have very much been looking forward to seizing the opportunity to celebrate the excellence of our business community in person, a community which has demonstrated resiliency and courage again and again while facing formidable circumstances.”

Each award category’s winner was chosen by a diverse panel of judges representing the plurality of Moncton’s business community.

The People’s Choice Award was tabulated using online votes from the chamber’s website, while the Business Person of the Year was voted on by the chamber’s 17-person board of directors.
