We're pleased to present more of our profiles of the 2011 Winning Edge Award nominees!

Goodmen Roofing Ltd - Winning Edge Award and Family Friendly Award nominee

Double nominees, Rob & Sandi Christensen of Goodmen Roofing

Nominated for both the Winning Edge Award and the Family Friendly Award, Goodmen Roofing Ltd. is owned by Sandi and Rob Christensen. The company was founded in 1999 on the east side of Airdrie and currently employs 19 staff.

This full service roofing contractor offers its residential and commercial customers a full range of sloped and flat roofing systems. They also offer repair services and roof maintenance programs custom tailored to each project. The company recently introduced a new Repairs & Maintenance Division.

Rob and Sandi were rendered virtually speechless by their nominations, but did have this to say:

Sandi is particularly proud of the Family Friendly Award nomination, as she says they try really hard to make each employee feel like part of their family:

Goodmen Roofing staff are proud to give back to the community and have volunteered at the Airdrie Pro Rodeo for a number of years. They also participate in the Canada Day Parade, with all of their employees proudly riding the route on the Goodmen Roofing parade float.


Natural e Green - Eco Edge Award nominee

Tamara Laschinsky, owner of Natural e Green, wants you to be healthy. And to be kind to our environment.

Laschinsky established Naturel e Green in 2009 to provide non-toxic and eco-friendly products for the whole family including personal care, cleaning products and gifts. They also offer information and education for consumers on toxic chemicals and the hazards they pose to human health as well as environmental health.

Lachinsky is proud that her company was able to double its sales in the last year and triple its customer and reader base. Amazingly, she also found time to publish two books in 2010 as well as over 500 wellness articles that have been reprinted worldwide in various online websites and magazines.

Although she was nominated for this award last year, being nominated again is gratifiying:

Naturel e Green is based online and as such, serves all of North America and a customer and reader base of about 4,000 people worldwide. A recently revamped website includes a new gift basket division as well as a full range of product offerings.
