The program is a joint initiative of Ottawa Business Journal and the Ottawa Board of Trade. It’s widely recognized as the region’s most sought-after business award for people under the age of 40.

The 2021 judging panel was chaired by OBJ publisher Michael Curran and included Gregory Richards from the Telfer School of Management Executive MBA and Robert Rhéaume from BDO Canada as well as two alumni, Joelle Hall from Richardson Wealth and Pascal St-Jean from TEC Canada.

One quote from today’s announcement that stuck with us was about innovation being a theme of the recipients this year and the impressive mix of leaders including family transitions, “the kids are stepping up and really innovating … taking a business to a whole new level” Pascal St-Jean (TEC Canada). Our President, Matthew Carr, being one of those bring new ideas to the table at Gifford Carr Insurance Group.
