Burlington’s Entrepreneurial Spirit
is proud to host this year’s
Distinguished Entrepreneur Award Dinner
The 2017 inductee into the Burlington Entrepreneur Hall of Fame is
President of Leggat Chevrolet Cadillac Buick GMC Limited
This celebatory evening will have cocktails, a plated dinner and entertainment.
This is the fourth time the Chamber of Commerce has hosted the event honouring local entrepreneurs. This event has a great tradition of recognizing and honouring great Burlington business leaders and it’s important that we acknowledge and thank these people for their contributions to our city. Mr. Leggat opened his first Burlington auto dealership, Leggat Pontiac Buick Cadillac, in 1968 and, since then, he has consistently served Burlington and the surrounding communities with passion, leadership, integrity and generosity. His business has grown from that single dealership 49 years ago to Leggat Auto Group which now owns and operates a total of eleven dealerships in Burlington, Ancaster, Milton, Hamilton, Owen Sound and Toronto. He is a well-known philanthropist in Burlington and has been called a 'philanthropic superstar'. He was the first chair of the Burlington Community Foundation, chaired Joseph Brant Hospital's first major capital campaign in 1985, and has a long history of personal and corporate giving to many local organizations. He and his dedicated staff have left a positive mark on the Burlington landscape.
