Hachborn to be Inducted into the Canadian Business Hall of Fame

WaltThis spring, Walter J. Hachborn, co-founder of Home Hardware Stores Limited, will be inducted into the Canadian Business Hall of Fame.

The ceremony for the Canadian Business Hall of Fame will take place May 4, 2015, in Toronto. The honor celebrates the exceptional achievements of Canada’s most distinguished business leaders, both past and present.

During the span of his almost 80-year career, Hachborn’s leadership and entrepreneurialism have had tremendous impact on the national hardware industry and the survival of the independent home improvement retailer in Canada, according to a press release from Home Hardware.

“I cannot imagine a greater honor than to be selected for entry into the Canadian Business Hall of Fame,” Hachborn says. “I am truly humbled and enormously grateful to have my name listed among Canada’s most distinguished business leaders.”

Hachborn dedicated his career to his vision of helping independent hardware retailers grow their businesses, according to the press release.

Paul Straus, President of Home Hardware, will be accepting the award in May on behalf of Hachborn.
