REVISED – April 23, 2015, Winnipeg, Manitoba Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN) wishes to congratulate APTN Chief Executive Officer Jean La Rose, on being named the ‘CEO HR Champion of the Year’at the 2015 HR Excellence Awards (formerly known as the Excellence in Leadership Awards Gala). The event, hosted by the Human Resource Management Association of Manitoba (HRMAM), was held last night at The Metropolitan Entertainment Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The ‘CEO HR Champion of the Year Award’recognizes an individual that has demonstrated excellence in championing and driving innovative and bold Human Resource strategies. An individual championing in HR is described by the HRMAM as someone who demonstrates a commitment to their employees; involves their HR leaders in key decisions and strategic planning; leads with integrity; champions a respectful and inclusive workplace; and demonstrates vision and addresses future challenges.

Jean La Rose was named Chief Executive Officer of APTN in November 2002. Under his guidance, the network has moved to a digital, high-definition platform and now employs over 130 people. More recently, he was faced with facilitating the renewal process of the network’s broadcasting licence while ensuring the entire organization stayed motivated and focused – in which he proved successful. Often described as a true role model and leader by his friends and peers, Mr. La Rose understands the importance of being part of a well-rounded team. For him, APTN’s employees are the foundation of the network’s success. He supports his staff professionally and personally through open communication and by creating an overall positive working environment.
