Albi President Inducted into Alberta Home Builder Hall of Fame

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 22, 2010) - It is with great pride that Albi Homes recognizes the induction of Allan J. Klassen, President and Managing Partner, into the Canadian Home Builders Association – Alberta Hall of Fame.

The award was presented to Mr. Klassen by outgoing association President, Deep Shergil, during the President's Dinner at the CHBA-Alberta annual conference in Jasper on Saturday, September 18th. Awestruck by the much-respected honour, Klassen commented, "I feel very humbled and honored to be acknowledged in the industry in this manner. I feel that I have been blessed and am grateful to have been given the opportunities and responsibilities to serve our industry over the last number of years – in Calgary and Alberta as a whole."

The Hall of Fame, which is not necessarily an annual induction, recognizes individuals who have contributed and made a difference in the home building industry in Alberta over the years. "This award is dually an honour to follow in the footsteps of so many great leaders in our industry," remarked Klassen, "including our very own founders and co-chairman, Tom and Debra Mauro who were inducted into the CHBA-Alberta Hall of Fame in 2007."

Prior to his induction, Mr. Klassen held numerous industry responsibilities including President of the CHBA-Calgary in 2004/05 and President of CHBA-Alberta in 2005/06. In 2007 he was awarded the "George Frieser Award" the highest level of recognition given for a volunteer at the provincial level for his leadership in gaining local and provincial support of the One Voice – One Industry initiative.
