Rob Gordon congratulates alum Jordan GoureUWindsor president Rob Gordon congratulates alum Jordan Goure on the Innovation Award his company received at the 2024 Business Excellence Awards.

Grads honoured for business acumen

The concept of a resumé — reducing a job seeker to a piece of paper — is archaic, says Jordan Goure (BA 2014).

He is president and CEO of Picsume, a tech company with a mission of providing dynamic work profiles that match candidates with their ideal jobs. The company won an Innovation Award sponsored by the University of Windsor Alumni Association at the Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards reception Wednesday at the Chrysler Theatre.

“The resumé is the past. Picsume is the future,” Goure says. “Our core values of innovation, efficiency, and meritocracy drive us to create a seamless experience for both candidates and employers.”

The awards honour top businesses, individuals, and organizations in Windsor-Essex in 12 categories.

Other winners with a UWindsor connection include:

  • Professional of the Year Tim Brady (BSc 1996), owner of Brady’s Drug Store, with pharmacies in Belle River, Essex, and Tilbury;
  • ErgoNow office furniture store, owned by Sue Brunet (BHK 1993), Company of the Year with fewer than 25 employees; and
  • Meighen Nehme (BComm 2002), president of the Job Shoppe employment agency, winner of the Athena Leadership Award.
