Chairman and CEO of The Remington Group, Rudolph P. Bratty, was honoured with a prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award as members of the GTA’s new home construction industry gathered to celebrate at the 32nd Annual BILD Awards last Friday, April 27, 2012
"I very much appreciate this award," said Mr. Bratty, who accepted the award in front of family and friends. "It means a lot to me and to The Remington family, and your generosity will not go unremembered."
"Rudy has a lifetime of achievements in this industry and the association is so proud to recognize and congratulate him for all of his accomplishments," said BILD Chair Paul Golini Jr.
Mr. Bratty followed in his father’s footsteps in the construction industry, building on Donato Bratty’s legacy as a homebuilder. Together with his brother Jerry, Rudy Bratty created The Remington Group Inc. more than 40 years ago and since then has established a reputation as one of the most successful property developers in the Greater Toronto Area.
A long-time member of BILD, Mr. Bratty has been involved in a wide range of business ventures, from residential and commercial developments to publishing, construction and finance. Most notably, his award-winning Downtown Markham project is underway and will bring 15,000 residents and 16,000 employees to the revitalized area. It’s a massive undertaking that underscores a longstanding desire to be at the cutting edge of the industry.
His lengthy list of business accomplishments are matched by his humanitarian and civic roles, serving as a director on numerous boards and showing devotion to a number of charitable causes, foundations and organizations. For his outstanding service, Mr. Bratty has been recognized by several notable institutions, including the Rudolph P. Bratty Exhibition Hall in the Canadian Museum of Immigration Pier 21 in Halifax.
