Canadian robotics firm acknowledged for energy, sustainability and superior results

(Kitchener, ON, Canada – November 20, 2014) Knightsbridge Human Capital Solutions and Richardson GMP in partnership with BNN and Canadian Business magazine have announced Clearpath Robotics a winner of the 2014 Canada’s Passion Capitalist Award. Winners were announced live on BNN this afternoon and will be profiled in the current edition of Canadian Business on newsstands today.

Based on the best-selling book Passion Capital by Paul Alofs, Canada’s Passion Capital is a national awards program that celebrates Canadian organizations who achieved long-term success by creating Passion Capital — the energy, intensity, and sustainability that enables organizations to overcome adversity and achieve outstanding results over time. “If you don’t have an irrational love for what you’re doing, then you’re not going to keep doing it in the face of friction, challenges, and adversity,” said Matt Rendall, Chief Executive Officer at Clearpath Robotics. “We’re fortunate to have a team of extremely valuable people who love what they do, and we’re thrilled to be a recipient of the Passion Capital Award.”

“This is the third year that Knightsbridge has sponsored the Canada’s Passion Capitalists awards program, and we continue to be impressed by the quality of the amazing organizations that work so hard to nurture the passion and dedication of their people. We have a lot to learn from them,” said David R. Shaw, Founder and CEO at Knightsbridge Human Capital Solutions. Adds Richardson GMP President and CEO, Andrew Marsh, “The 2014 Winners are exceptional organizations, large and small, that exemplify what it means to have passion capital. They understand the importance of culture, courage, and strategy and they do the hard work of developing these things within their organization. It’s that determination that drives their success and sets them apart from other organizations.”
