Lillian Lyle, Chief Executive Officer, was the recipient of The Tom Ryan Award of Ethics, Integrity Above All in 2005. The coveted Tom Ryan Award is presented annually in memory of one of the Contact Management field’s most ardent advocates, Tom Ryan – a pioneer of the Telephone Message Industry. This Industry-specific award pays homage to companies that exhibit quality service while adhering to a mandate based on commitment to ethics and integrity above all else. Also taken into consideration is the company’s overall dedication to maintaining a cohesive working environment, practicing ongoing internal and external customer service initiatives and continuous involvement in industry and community programs. Lillian was also voted as The Squamish Business Person of the Year in 2003, a nomination entered by an employee. Lil served on the Board of Directors for CAM-X from 1998 to 2009 as well as the Squamish Chamber of Commerce from 2004 to 2007. She is also the Chair of the CAM-X Award Committee so she fully expects her staff to exceed her expectations!
