TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 15, 2010) - Groupworks Financial Corp.

Groupworks is a leading consolidator of Canadian Employee Benefit, Pension advisory and HR firms and is listed on the TSX Venture exchange.

"Groupworks is thrilled to be included with the best growth companies in Canada.

"As an emerging publicly listed company, we are especially thankful to all of our clients, advisors, employees, partners and stakeholders for their support in enabling our growth."

PROFIT Magazine's HOT 50 is the definitive ranking of Canada's Emerging Growth Companies. Published in the October issue of PROFIT magazine and online at PROFITguide.com and canadianbusiness.com, the HOT 50 Canadian-owned, private and publicly traded companies based on percentage revenue growth over two years.

"Creativity, foresight and focus are just some of the traits required to launch a successful business in today's volatile marketplace," said PROFIT Magazine's Editor, Ian Portsmouth. "This year's PROFIT HOT 50 leaders have these qualities in abundance."

Among its recent accomplishments, Groupworks has added close to 100 new corporate clients and has expanded services in Quebec and Manitoba. The Company continues to introduce more comprehensive market solutions, build a broader source of suppliers and proprietary solutions and recruit a deeper bench of advisors and expertise. Today the Company provides services nationwide with over 150 staff in offices across six provinces.
