Report on Business is pleased to announce the winners of its second annual Best Executive Awards, which celebrates excellence among non-CEO leaders at the SVP, EVP and C-suite (or equivalent) levels.

The 2021 winners represent the best of Canadian leadership in five functional areas: Finance; Human Resources; Operations; Sales and Marketing; and Technology.

“Over the last year, we’ve seen the importance of strong, creative, and empathetic leadership at the executive levels,” says James Cowan, editor, Report on Business magazine. “As leaders in both their companies and their respective fields, these executives work across their organizations, while anchoring their departments in times of ongoing crisis.”

Winning executives were chosen after a call for nominations for Canadian leaders at public and private businesses, not-for-profits, associations and academic institutions. Nominations were assessed by the Report on Business editorial team based on career background, leadership style, achievements, and impact.



Edward Shim, Managing Director at Studio 1 Labs, and SOSCIP-alum, was awarded Best Executive: Operations, by the Globe and Mail earlier this month. A hearty congratulations to Edward!
