Ches Penney

Born in Carbonear in 1932, the eldest of twelve children, the President and CEO of Penney Group learned to accept a leadership role early. Mr. Penney began a career in banking,moving into private business several years later.

Over the years, Mr. Penney's business interests have grown into a number of companies which stretch from St. John's to Vancouver Island, covering everything from automobiles to marine transportation, heavy construction, concrete, ship repair, steel fabrication, real estate and fish processing.

With holdings and business interests in five provinces across Canada, it should come as no surprise that today, the Penney Group is one of Newfoundland and Labrador's largest private commercial enterprises employing up to 3,000 people, with annual revenues in excess of $350 million.
