Ben TeKamp

The Ben TeKamp Memorial Award has been established to be presented to an outstanding business that is new or has reinvented itself to meet the changing needs of Leeds and Grenville.

Description

Be it on the farm or in the boardroom, he was a citizen of Brockville with a lengthy resume to certainly be proud of. Although best known as Mayor Ben, his political career was just one of his many contributions to the Brockville community.

He is also remembered as an accomplished businessman and a believer, supporter and motivator of new entrepreneurs and people interested in starting their own business. Working with local community economic development agencies, Ben spent years helping new businesses turn into successful livelihoods.
