A South Surrey hair salon owner was among employers recognized this month for creating meaningful employment opportunities for adults with developmental disabilities.

Marty Hunter of Fresh Hair Concepts was among six employers throughout Surrey, White Rock and Delta to receive a 2015 Innovative Labour Solutions Award Oct. 1 at Eaglequest Golf Club.

Hunter was recognized in the 5-99 Employees category.

The 1-4 Employees category was won by Philip Aguirre of Newton Business Improvement Association; Les Merson and Kathryn McLean of Stenberg College won in the 100-499 Employees; and Anna Christian of the City of Surrey’s Cemetery Services won in the 500+ Employees category.
