It was under a shower of confetti and in an uproar of applause that we celebrated Groupe Dynamite’s 40th anniversary* at our Annual Meeting, on December 11, 2015.
Andrew Lutfy, CEO, shared his sense of pride with all 700 Head Office and Distribution Centre employees while looking back on what was built over the years. We came to realize that success—especially sustained success—in this business is about the ability to continuously reinvent ourselves, stay ahead, and innovate. Forty years of thriving brings a load of ups and downs, and highs and lows. However, Groupe Dynamite’s true greatness comes from all the individuals who have walked through the doors of the company over the years with the sole purpose of contributing to our story. When you add all those up, it transcends into something bigger, which is Groupe Dynamite today.
The spirit of celebration was high throughout the ceremony, making everyone excited and proud to be a part of this special milestone. The Annual Meeting concluded with our employees smiling wide as they walked down the runway showcasing our latest collections, creating a buzz amongst the crowd!
*The first “Le Garage” store opened in 1975 at Place Versailles, Montreal. Today, Groupe Dynamite operates more than 380 stores worldwide. Over the years, we saw our brands and our technology evolve to ensure our growth and success. All of this has been possible thanks to the dedication, commitment and passion of our 1,500 employees.
