P.E.I. businessman Tim Banks was recognized as a Top 50 CEO for the fifth time and has been inducted into the Atlantic Business Magazine Hall of Fame. The ceremony was held on the weekend in Halifax.

The citation says the winners of this award are chosen because the CEO is an exceptional business leader, dedicated to growing their business and also a supporter of their community.

Atlantic Business Magazine says that its Top 50 CEO award winners are also a little bit lawless, in the most positive sense of the word, because “they consistently question the status quo. They rarely follow convention. And they are always searching for more efficient and effective ways of getting the job done.”

This description fits Bank perfectly, said the magazine. Banks was the only person from Prince Edward Island to be chosen as a top 50 CEO in 2008.

As the head of one of the largest construction and design-build companies in the Atlantic region, Banks looked to his parents as being the source of his success. “My parents didn’t have much, but they worked hard and they always made me look for the best in everyone,” he says of his early influences.  “They always made me feel confident and they instilled in me the sense that I had the same abilities as everyone else. They taught me not to be afraid of following my dreams.”

The Atlantic Business Magazine Hall of Fame was created as a way of honouring those that made the Top 50 CEO list five times. This year, Banks was included as one of only 18 people who have accomplished this since the awards inception.

Banks’ construction company, APM, has grown to include offices in Charlottetown, Halifax, Toronto and Calgary, employing hundreds of people, and earning millions of dollars in annual revenue.
