Canadian Business and PROFIT today ranked LumiGroup No. 370 on the 27th annual ranking of Canada’s 500 Fastest-Growing Companies. Only 44 Montreal-based companies have been ranked in 2015 and LumiGroup is proud to be part of them. Published in the October issue of Canadian Business and at PROFITguide.com, the PROFIT 500 ranks Canadian businesses by their five-year revenue growth.
“The PROFIT 500 represent the highest tier of entrepreneurialism in Canada,” says James Cowan, Editor-in-chief of PROFIT and Canadian Business. “They should be lauded for the positive economic contributions they’ve made to their communities — and the entire country. They are examples of what can be accomplished with innovation, discipline and determination."
LumiGroup is a homegrown Montreal success story. CEO Jean-Claude Calabro, an electrician and HEC Montréal business graduate, previously ranked as a finalist of the Université de Montréal business program’s Entrepreneur of the Year award. He started his agency as a one-man show in a small boardroom at a local manufacturer in 1995. Today, his team of Lighting Specialists contributes to most of the high-profile renovation and construction projects in downtown Montreal and Quebec City. Mr. Calabro is certified by the IESNA (Illuminating Engineering Society of North America) and is LC (Lighting Certified) with NCQLP (National Council on Qualification for the Lighting Professions), one of the few people in North America with this accreditation.
“LumiGroup is honoured to be among the top 500 in Canada,” says CEO Jean-Claude Calabro. “This achievement reflects our team’s dedication and service excellence to Quebec’s community of architects, designers and engineers, with LumiGroup representing leading-edge manufacturers from around the world.”
