MONTREAL, Sept. 20, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Bell today congratulates BCE Chair Thomas C. O'Neill, FCA for receiving the ICAO Award of Outstanding Merit from the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario (CPA Ontario) at a gala awards ceremony last evening. CPA Ontario's highest honour, the Award of Outstanding Merit recognizes Mr. O'Neill's contributions both to his profession and to the community.

"It is a great pleasure, on behalf of everyone on the Bell team, to congratulate Tom O'Neill on being recognized with this professional honour," said George Cope, President and Chief Executive Officer of BCE and Bell Canada. "His leadership in the boardroom and his commitment to community make him an outstanding role model."

Originally from Québec City, Mr. O'Neill graduated from Queen's University before joining Price Waterhouse in 1967. He rose to become Chair of the Board of PWC Consulting prior to his retirement in 2002. Mr. O'Neill joined the BCE Board of Directors in 2003 and became Chair of the Board in February 2009.

Governance honours Under Mr. O'Neill's leadership, BCE's Board of Directors has been recognized twice this year for excellence in corporate governance. BCE was named the winner of the first-ever award for best overall corporate governance from the Canadian Society of Corporate Secretaries, awarded for best practices in building and sustaining shareholder and stakeholder value. And the Canadian Coalition for Good Governance gave BCE its Gavel Award, recognizing the company for effective communications with shareholders.

First awarded in 1984, the ICAO Award of Outstanding Merit recognizes service to the accounting profession and community involvement. With only 49 previous recipients, Mr. O'Neill joins a select group of his peers to be recognized in this manner by CPA Ontario, the qualifying and regulatory body for Chartered Professional Accountants in Ontario ( www.cpaontario.ca).
