At Sterling, we were thrilled to hear that our CEO, David Van Slingerland, was selected to receive the Order of Vaughan, the highest civic honor available from the City of Vaughan. David was chosen based on his contributions to both business and medical technology, having been a long-time collaborator and supporter of the city’s economic development initiatives, and a significant driver of the city’s vision to become a world-class center for medical innovation. Besides his success in creating valuable, high-tech manufacturing jobs at Sterling Industries, David has also been an active supporter of the city’s MedTech startup ecosystem, donating both time and resources to growing the next generation of Vaughan’s MedTech leaders.
On November 3rd 2022, David was honored by the city, and presented the Order of Vaughan by Mayor Bevilacqua. Vaughan is part of the Greater Toronto Area and has been one of Canada’s fastest growing cities and economic zones in recent decades. “I am extremely grateful to be recognized by the City, and for the opportunities that Vaughan has provided both myself and Sterling Industries, through continual collaboration and a shared vision for the city’s future,” said Van Slingerland. Vaughan has been developing a reputation as both a center of medical innovation, and a critical hub in the Ontario Technology Corridor.
On behalf of all of us at Sterling Industries:
Thank you for all that you do for our team and our community. We look forward to pushing the vision forward: working together, continuing to grow, create great jobs and support medical innovation in our community.
