Jeff Granberg, Co-Owner and CEO of PD Group of Companies Inc., was recently named the EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2017 Prairies, in the Real Estate and Construction division. Coming as no surprise to anyone who has had the opportunity to work with him, he was also honored, being awarded as the overall winner and named THE EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2017 Prairies.
Since his promotion to Vice President of Operations in 1997, Jeff has "Dared to be Different" leading Park Derochie into new markets and new ventures along the way. Always looking for new ways to do things, being confident in his people has allowed Park Derochie to not only compete but be successful in those endeavors.
The last few years in construction has required Park Derochie to make changes. Switching their focus from new construction to maintenance and from Oil & Gas to being more diversified, moving into new provinces and into the United States. Throughout this Park Derochie has still seen impressive continued growth.
Jeff recognizes, that he is only as good as his people and attributes his success to believing in them. Acknowledging "the work boots on the ground, because they are the ones that are successful, they are the ones who go out there every single day. They have to go on the 14 & 7 rotations, working in cold environments and they are our success."
On November 30, 2017, as the Prairies region's EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2017, Jeff will compete with top entrepreneurs from the Pacific, Ontario, Atlantic and Quebec regions for the national honor of Canada's EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2017.
