In December, Athabasca Basin Development (ABD) was selected as Business of the Year by SaskBusiness Magazine. ABD joins an elite group of previous winners, including Cameco, Mosaic, Concorde Group of Companies, and Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority.

“We are proud, and very humbled, to have received this recognition,” says Geoff Gay, CEO of ABD. “As an Aboriginal-owned investment company, we started from humble beginnings and have worked hard over the last twelve years, reinvesting earnings to grow our company. Back in the early days, we never would have imagined we would be where we are today, and we are incredibly honoured to have been chosen as this year’s Business of the Year.”

Saskatchewan Business Magazine is the province’s premier source for positive business news regarding Saskatchewan’s industry sectors and overall economy. It is home to the original and official Top 100 Companies Listing in Saskatchewan. “The Business of the Year is awarded to companies that have given back to the community and remained admirable corporate citizens,” says Twila Reddekopp, Publisher at SaskBusiness Magazine. “It is a way to show our appreciation to innovative, well respected and benevolent businesses. This year we are happy to recognize ABD for their contribution to the Saskatchewan economy and more importantly, our communities.”

“Our company was built on the foundation of seven communities uniting together, and without it, we would not be where we are today,” says Gay. “There are so many people who have contributed to our success – industry, our shareholders, management and employees. Without all of you, we would not be where we are today. It is with this continued support and investment from our partners that we will see more success into the future.”
