Metro's top exec was named Outstanding CEO for 2020, an honour presented by Bennett Jones LLP, Caldwell Partners International Inc., National Post and BNN Bloomberg

The CEO of Metro, Eric R. La Flèche, has been named Canada’s outstanding CEO of the Year for 2020. Presented by Bennett Jones LLP, Caldwell Partners International Inc., the National Post and BNN Bloomberg, the award recognizes the company's performance over time in several categories: vision and leadership, corporate performance, global competitiveness, innovative business achievements and corporate responsibility. "Under La Flèche's guidance, Metro has increased revenues to over $16 billion annually and employs 90,000 Canadians," according to the Outstanding CEO of the Year website.

La Flèche was quick to give credit to the entire Metro team for the honour, saying, "I very much think this is a company award. I’m the CEO of a company, so it’s a company award. Retail is a team sport. I lead a team and this award is more a team thing than an individual award.”
