In a move that is long overdue, the Canadian Press is reporting that RIM co-CEOs Jim Balsillie and Mike Lazaridis are the latest inductees to the Canadian Business Hall of Fame. The brain trust of our favorite company from Waterloo were among six luminaries to be given the honour by the Junior Achievement of Canada organization.
Inductees to the Hall of Fame are nominated by their peers and are chosen by an independent selection committee representing Canada’s foremost business, academic and media institutions. Mike and Jim will be formally inducted at a ceremony in Toronto next May. Congratulations, gentlemen!
