I bristled earlier this year while reading a farewell column penned by an outgoing Montreal Gazette journalist. Reflecting on a career that spanned nearly 30 years, Sue Montgomery said she steered clear of covering the city’s corporate community because she was uninterested in reporting on “boring businessmen.” With the greatest respect to Ms. Montgomery’s excellent coverage of justice and social issues, she evidently hasn’t had the opportunity to meet many of the dynamic and creative people leading companies across the country. Particularly those in the National Capital Region. The office buildings in and around Ottawa are chock-full of stories about perseverance, risk-taking, innovation and fascinating achievements. This year’s OBJ Book of Lists contains several of them. Roger Woeller, the CEO of clean-tech firm BluMetric, has travelled from the tropics to the high Arctic, helping to decommission military bases and clean up the water and ground contaminated by unexploded artillery shells and bombs. Barbara Veder, a vice-president at consulting firm Morneau Shepell, is finding new ways of delivering her HR services online, which has helped encourage people who normally wouldn’t seek out help to get it. And Pat McGowan – who heads TV, video and film production studio inMotion – has co-produced a television series on aboriginal firefighters in northern Ontario. These are just a handful of the people profiled in the Book of Lists, which aims to give readers a deeper understanding of the individuals and companies that make up Ottawa’s economy. Divided into five of the city’s primary industries, each section opens with a statistical snapshot that gives an overview of the sector’s economic performance. That’s followed by the Who’s Who profiles,

which introduce some of the region’s top executives. As always, the rankings of the largest firms – broken down into more than three dozen industry categories – form the heart of the Book of Lists. They’re followed by a new feature aimed at highlighting the more colourful side of Ottawa’s business community. Nine mini-lists take a closer look at the stories behind some of the city’s oldest family-owned businesses, celebrities born and raised in Ottawa as well as the lumber barons who helped put the region on the map in the 1800s. A full index can be found on the following page. This publication is a constant work in progress, with the data contained in the lists being updated throughout the year. That’s only possible thanks to the co-operation of all the companies and organizations that responded to our requests for information. Without their willingness to provide accurate and up-to-date data, the Book of Lists would not be possible. This publication is also available for purchase in a digital format, with our databases organized in Excel files, at OBJ.ca. Earlier this year, the Conference Board of Canada predicted that Ottawa-Gatineau would have the lowest GDP growth in 2015 among the country’s major metropolitan areas outside Alberta, where the economy has been hit hard by low energy prices. But starting in 2016, Ottawa-Gatineau is forecast to join the upper half of the topperforming cities on the strength of its resilient tech sector, a healthy construction industry and stability in the public sector. With the hundreds of executives and companies who are profiled on the following pages poised to take advantage of these opportunities, there’s little chance of “boring businesspeople” bogging down OBJ’s stories in the years ahead.

BUSINESS HISTORY

Looking back at the Ottawa Board of Trade centennial John Rudolphus Booth

Written by Steven Fouchard

Philemon Wright

Henry Franklin Bronson

From logging capital to national capital: Meet three of Ottawa’s lumber barons Written by Steven Fouchard

B

efore “Silicon Valley North” or the “(civil service) city that fun forgot,” Ottawa was a lumber town. In 1806, Napoleon was blockading European ports, so British officials looked to the future Canadian capital for the materials it needed for shipbuilding – military and otherwise. Its red and white pine forests would help keep the empire afloat through much of the 1800s in addition to driving significant growth in the region. An 1869 report from the U.S. State Department identified timber as Canada’s top export, with Ottawa as a major centre of activity. By the late 1800s, more than 15,000 men in the region were working in lumber, sparking significant population growth and economic activity. The names of some of the industry’s business leaders – Booth, Bronson and others – are still prominent in Ottawa. Here are some of their stories: Philemon Wright Also well-remembered as the founder of Gatineau, Massachusetts-born Mr. Wright was the first of the lumber barons to attempt what many thought impossible: pilot a timber raft to Quebec City, where the wood could be sold for export to Britain. Wrightstown, the community he founded at the foot of the Chaudière Falls, became a commercial hub of mills (hemp, grist and lumber) and shops. Henry Franklin Bronson He reportedly decided almost immediately after visiting the Ottawa Valley that he’d found the perfect place for a sawmill. He and partner John Harris bought land on Victoria Island, paid $200 for rights to use Chaudière Falls and established a highly modern operation. In the 1960s, a descendant would donate part of Bronson’s land holdings to the National Capital Commission, which expropriated the rest a few years later. John Rudolphus Booth Perhaps the best known of Ottawa’s lumber barons, Mr. Booth’s operation is credited with outputting more product than any comparable operation in the world by 1892 as well as supplying lumber for construction of the Parliament Buildings. Mr. Booth’s first business venture was an ill-fated machine shop that burnt down. By working days as a carpenter and spending nights crafting shingles for the Wright family, he managed to establish a shingle factory of his own and began his career ascent.

verge of becoming a reality.” In its centennial year, the Board of Trade welcomed a new president, prominent Ottawa retailer E.R. Fisher. At 42, Mr. Fisher was then the youngest president in the board’s history. Mr. Fisher was said to be “a keen Ottawa Board of Trade supporter for many years” and had previously served on several committees as well as spending three years as vicepresident. An article introducing the new president said Mr. Fisher “has always held a firm conviction that the business man’s most effective way to express his opinions to government, and to champion the free enterprise way of life is through the Board of Trade movement.”

The Ottawa Board of Trade, which became the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce in 2001, pre-dates Confederation by a decade. On the occasion of its centennial in May 1957, a special supplement was published in the Ottawa Citizen. Looking back, it offers a fascinating glimpse of Ottawa in the late ’50s and provides an overview of the Board of Trade’s work at the time. A lot has changed since 1957, but then – as now – traffic was a major topic of discussion. The removal of the Canadian National Railway’s crosstown rail tracks was underway and was “expected to bring a tremendous relief to the traffic situation.” CNR planned to move EARLY DAYS its operations from One story in the Catherine Street supplement discusses the to the far west end Board of Trade’s role in and construction of keeping the Rideau Canal two new lines was open to boat traffic when, underway “near South in 1910, the CPR proposed March.” to close it from The Plans were set “for Deep Cut (near Waverly the construction of a Avenue) to the Ottawa new east-west traffic River “so as to provide artery from Hurdman’s added ingress and egress – OTTAWA CITIZEN SUPPLEMENT MARKING THE CENTENNIAL OF Bridge to the west end of railways to the city.” THE OTTAWA BOARD OF TRADE of the capital and a By the end of the IN MAY 1957 junction with Highway year that plan had been 17 beyond Britannia.” dropped, thanks in no It notes that rail lines in the city to that small part to “civic opposition sparked by point had developed to meet the needs of the Board of Trade.” the lumber industry that had been at its Another article notes that the board centre in the 19th century.

or the first time in at least three years, fewer than 100,000 local residents were employed in public administration in June 2015, according to Statistics Canada data. That’s down by more than 21,000 positions since November 2012 and has coincided with the federal government’s spending restraint that’s also affected private businesses in the region. Local companies landed nearly $2.5 billion worth of government contracts in the most recent fiscal year, down approximately 40 per cent from 2011-12. Elsewhere, consumer spending shot up after a minor contraction in 2013 as individuals appear to be on more solid financial ground. The number of consumer bankruptcies fell to its lowest level in at least nine years to 2,494 cases, a 40 per cent decline compared with 2009.

WHO'S WHO Profiles of key executives at some of the top HR consulting companies in Ottawa-Gatineau. See page 18 for a complete list of the sector’s largest firms in the region. Profiles by Jacob Serebrin

Barbara Veder, vice-president of clinical services and research lead, Morneau Shepell New technology is changing the world of employee assistance programs and Barbara Veder says she’s excited about helping people in new ways. She’s the vice-president of clinical services and the research lead at Morneau Shepell, a pension and benefit consulting firm and provider of employee assistance programs. Armed with a master’s of social work from Wilfrid Laurier University, she’s been with the company for 21 years. Collectively, the company handles some 160,000 cases

Susannah Crabtree, retirement consultant and office leader, Mercer Ottawa Susannah Crabtree says her work is all about people. She’s been the leader of Mercer’s Ottawa office for two years and headed the company’s local retirement business for three years. She also still works as a retirement consultant and a consulting actuary – her previous positions at Mercer, a company she’s been with for 10 years. She has an educational background in psychology and mathematics after completing a double major – graduating with honours – at McGill University. She says that background serves her well in her job. The psychology helps her understand people, while math plays a big role in her work as

in the field annually. But Ms. Veder also puts a priority on developing new and unique solutions for her clients. The company has launched an app and now provides counselling in both video and chat formats. She says that’s helped reach younger people. The increased anonymity of online counselling helps encourage people who normally wouldn’t seek out help to get it. She’s been recognized for her work, winning the Contribution to the Field Award from the Employee Assistance Trade Association. Much of her community involvement is in her field. She sits on the board of the Employee Assistance Research Foundation and was the president of the Mood Disorders Association of Ontario.

an actuary. “Consulting requires more than just analytical thinking,” she says. “You have to connect with people very quickly.” As the office leader, Ms. Crabtree’s key responsibilities include promoting the Mercer brand in Ottawa and eastern Ontario. She also aims to build relationships and keep her office working together despite having four primary business lines: retirement, investments, talent management and employee health and benefits. She also has to serve her own clients and stay on top of new developments in her field. It’s not just about work, though. “Community involvement is something we’re really big on,” she says. In May, Ms. Crabtree and her colleagues spent a volunteer day helping Christie Lake Camp, which serves underprivileged youth, prepare for the summer. Her office also raises more than $20,000 annually for the United Way – something Ms. Crabtree is particularly proud of, given that the local office has fewer than 50 employees.

Suzanne Simpson, president and CEO, Human Resource Systems Group For Suzanne Simpson, human resources is all about strategy. “What is it about your talent that’s going to make your company more successful? What do you have to do in order to make them real assets to your success?” she asks. “We’re really there to support organizational success.” Ms. Simpson has been in her current position since she founded the Human Resource Systems Group 26 years ago. Previously, she was a member of the Canadian Forces, where she rose to the rank of captain, as well as a senior manager at Canada Post. Ms. Simpson holds a Ph.D in industrial

psychology, which she says aids her in her dayto-day work. “A lot of the work that industrial psychologists do relates to managing talent in the workplace, assessing talent, developing talent,” she says. Over the years, Ms. Simpson’s key responsibilities have evolved significantly. She started the company as a sole proprietor, but as it grew into a medium-sized professional services firm, her role has evolved into a management position. Ms. Simpson has won several awards for her work. In 2011, she was named corporate Businesswoman of the Year by the Women’s Business Network. When it comes to community involvement, much of Ms. Simpson’s work is around helping women succeed in their careers, something that started during her time as a military officer. She’s a member of the Women Presidents' Organization, which provides peer leadership, and is active in Kiwanis.

POLITICS

From the boardroom to public office: Four politicians who started in business Written by Steven Fouchard Larry O'Brien

F

ormer Ottawa West-Nepean MP John Baird generated headlines earlier this year when he announced he was leaving public life after a 20year political career that included serving in key cabinet positions at both the federal and provincial levels. Mr. Baird’s early career included time as a staffer with then-federal defence minister Perrin Beatty as well as work as a lobbyist. His post-politics career has landed Mr. Baird squarely in the corporate world, where he sits on the international advisory board of Barrick Gold, serves as a director at Canadian Pacific Railway and acts as an advisor to Hong Kong billionaire Richard Li. Mr. Baird may have made his mark in politics before entering the business world, but several other notable Canadian lawmakers stood for public office after early corporate successes. Here are some of their stories:

Brian Mulroney Early career: Although he failed the Quebec bar exam on his first two tries, Mr. Mulroney developed a reputation in the province as a skilled labour negotiator and was instrumental in ending several difficult strikes in his work with Montreal law firm Ogilvy Renault. After losing his initial bid for the Progressive Conservative leadership to Joe Clark in 1976, he was named executive vice-president of the Iron Ore Co. of Canada and was later named president. Business performance: Mr. Mulroney is widely credited with improving labour relations at the Iron Ore Co., which increased profits under his leadership. Political performance: After leading the Tories to their first majority in more 20 years, Mr. Mulroney made his mark with the privatization of 23 Crown corporations and the Free Trade Agreement of 1988. He’s also been called Canada’s greenest prime minister for negotiating the Canada-U.S. acid rain treaty and bringing in the Environmental Protection Act.

Paul Martin Early career: The man who would become Canada’s 21st prime minister was the executive assistant to Power Corp. CEO Maurice Strong and just 32 years old when the management and holding company took a controlling share in Canada Steamship Lines. Mr. Martin was appointed to CSL’s board of directors and became its president and CEO in 1973.

Business performance: CSL had been rocked by cost overruns in constructing several tankers when Mr. Martin took the helm. Soon afterwards, the company took another hit from a two-month strike by workers on the Great Lakes. Power Corp. put the CSL subsidiary up for sale in 1981 and Mr. Martin, along with several partners, purchased it. Mr. Martin led an expansion into international waters before stepping aside after his election as MP for the Montreal riding of LaSalle-Émard. Today, CSL Group operates both Canadian and international subsidiaries. Political performance: Mr. Martin is widely hailed as a “deficit slayer” for his work as finance minister under Liberal prime minister Jean Chrétien when he balanced five consecutive federal budgets. As prime minister, his accomplishments include a major federal-provincial agreement on health care spending and the historic Kelowna Accord. However, the latter initiative – which allocated government funding for aboriginal education, employment and housing – was not implemented by the Conservative government that succeeded Mr. Martin’s Liberals.

Belinda Stronach Early career: The future Liberal cabinet minister started her business career on the board of Magna International, an auto parts company founded in 1957 by her father, Frank. She sat on the board from 1988 to 2004 and served as vicepresident and executive vice-president before being named CEO in 2001. Business performance: Ms. Stronach is credited with leading the company to post record sales and profits. She has been called one of Canada’s 100 most powerful women and a “Global Leader of Tomorrow” by the World Economic Forum.

Political performance: After helping to facilitate the negotiations that led to the merger of the Canadian Alliance and Progressive Conservative parties, Ms. Stronach entered the leadership contest for the newly minted Conservative Party of Canada. She won 35 per cent of the vote, finishing second behind future Prime Minister Stephen Harper. She was subsequently elected MP for Newmarket-Aurora but left the Conservative Party in 2005, when she crossed the floor of the House of Commons to join the cabinet of the governing Liberals. Though she was re-elected in 2006, Ms. Stronach announced the following year that she would not run again.

Larry O'Brien Early career: Ottawa’s 58th mayor is an Algonquin College graduate who worked for several companies in Ottawa’s tech sector before launching his own firm, Insta-Call Ltd. It went bankrupt in 1979. On his blog, Mr. O’Brien calls it “an ill-conceived idea that was executed in a sloppy manner.” He bounced back in 1982 with the founding of Calian Technology Ltd. Business performance: Mr. O’Brien retired as CEO of Calian in 2005 when its annual sales totaled $177 million. His initial investment was just $35. Political performance: Mr. O’Brien helped bring a new convention centre to downtown Ottawa and was instrumental in the redevelopment of Lansdowne Park, but frequently courted controversy. He was forced to temporarily step aside as mayor in 2009 during his criminal trial on charges that he’d offered a political rival a bribe to drop out of the 2006 mayoral race. He was ultimately acquitted.

he average resale home price in Ottawa reached an all-time high of $404,254 in June 2015 – an increase of nearly onethird over the past six years, according to data from the Ottawa Real Estate Board. New home construction in 2014, however, fell by 12 per cent over 2013 levels. According to the Conference Board of Canada, weak employment has dampened demand for new homes despite low interest rates. Additionally, the research organization says there are signs of oversupply in Ottawa’s condominium sector. Meanwhile, commercial vacancy rates have continued to climb upwards as demand for office space remained muted after several large blocks of office space hit the market.

WHO'S WHO Profiles of key executives at some of the top homebuilding companies in Ottawa-Gatineau. See page 26 for a complete list of the sector’s largest firms in the region. Profiles by Jacob Serebrin

CEO, the Minto Group Prior to becoming CEO of the Minto Group two years ago, Michael Waters helped the company expand its real estate investment management business as well as grow its operations to new geographic regions in Ontario, Alberta and Florida. Other previous positions include being president of Minto’s Canadian land development and homebuilding business as well as serving as the company’s chief financial officer. Mr. Waters has an educational background in both business and finance. He holds a bachelor of commerce degree from the University of British Columbia

as well as an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He’s also a chartered financial analyst and a chartered professional accountant. Minto has won multiple awards for its work, including being named Ontario Home Builder of the Year by the Ontario Home Builders' Association in 2012 and 2014. Mr. Waters’ community involvement has largely centred around youth sports and education. He’s currently a member of Algonquin College’s Board of Governors and sits on the advisory board of the Sprott School of Business at Carleton University.

Kevin O’Shea, division president in Ottawa, Mattamy Homes Kevin O’Shea may new to his job, but he’s hardly a newcomer to the real estate development business or Ottawa. He worked at Monarch Corp. for 17 years before it was bought by Mattamy, which named him division president in Ottawa slightly more than six months ago. His previous positions include vicepresident of operations for Ottawa, construction

superintendent and project manager. Mr. O’Shea worked in residential construction while in school and entered the industry full-time after completing a B.A. degree in environmental studies at Carleton University. He also takes pride in the fact that the company has seven points of sale in Ottawa and constructs some 800 new homes annually. Mattamy gives back to the community through several initiatives. The company is the title sponsor of The Ride, a cycling event that supports the Ottawa Hospital Foundation. It’s also sponsored a charity golf tournament for Kids Come 1st.

Michael Waters,

Kris Singhal, owner, Richcraft Group of Cos. Kris Singhal has been in the homebuilding business since he started the Richcraft Group in 1983. Since then it’s “gone through three major recessions and a very strong upswing in the market since 1990,” he says. He says many people don’t fully appreciate the capital-intensive or risky nature of the industry. “It takes a long time to realize a return on your investment,” he says. Mr. Singhal’s previous positions include

working as the deputy controller for Northern Telecom and serving as an executive financial project manager for the federal government’s Department of Supply and Services, a predecessor to Public Works and Government Services Canada. He holds a diverse and deep educational background. Mr. Singhal is a lawyer and holds bachelor of commerce and financial management degrees. He’s also a certified management accountant. In 2014, the company received the Greater Ottawa Home Builders' Association Grand SAMMY Builder of the Year Award. Mr. Singhal has also received an award from the Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce. His community involvement includes supporting CHEO as well as sponsoring the Richcraft Recreation Complex in Kanata and the Richcraft Sensplex in Gloucester.

ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT

Ottawa’s other famous five From a classic pop singer/songwriter to one of the most bizarre comedians ever, Ottawa has produced more than its share of extraordinary talent. Here are the stories of five of the city’s best: Written by Steven Fouchard

Paul Anka Before he wrote mega-hits such as Diana, Puppy Love and Lonely Boy, this Fisher Park High School alumnus paid his dues at open mic nights all over Ottawa. According to an Anka biography in the City of Ottawa archives, Mr. Anka’s father was concerned his son wasn’t paying enough attention to his studies. His solution? Send the boy to live with an uncle in Hollywood. It would be in New York, where the young Mr. Anka travelled in 1957, that he’d find fame. He reportedly earned some $100,000 that year and would make four times more in the following years. Still a major concert draw, Mr. Anka has U.S. and Canadian dates booked through November 2015.

Dan Aykroyd The legendary comedian and actor attended Catholic high schools in Ottawa and apparently planned to be a priest until his late teens. At the age of 17, he met his future Saturday Night Live boss, Lorne Michaels, when both men were working on the CBC sketch comedy show The Hart and Lorne Terrific Hour. Mr. Aykroyd further indulged his passion for acting at Carleton University, where he became heavily involved in theatre, though he would drop out before finishing a degree. After a subsequent move to Toronto, he would become part of the famed Second City comedy troupe before joining the original Saturday Night Live cast. His highly successful career in film has included several major comedy hits, including The Blues Brothers and Ghostbusters, and earned him an Oscar nomination for his role in Driving Miss Daisy.

Tom Green This surrealist comic and Algonquin alumnus is definitely an acquired taste. The notoriety he developed locally with the Tom Green Show (on which, among other bizarre antics, he tormented his parents by painting their house plaid) garnered national and finally international attention. A stint on MTV led to supporting roles in big productions such as SNL spinoff Superstar and Charlie’s Angels. He co-wrote, directed and starred in 2001’s Freddy Got Fingered, a semi-autobiographical and bizarre comedy. Though it would eventually develop a cult audience, it was not well-liked at the time. Critic Roger Ebert said, “This movie isn't the bottom of the barrel. This movie isn't below the bottom of the barrel. This movie doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence with barrels.” Mr. Green continues to tour as a stand-up and hosts a podcast and talk show on his website, tomgreen.com.

Norm MacDonald This hyper-sarcastic comedian and actor was actually born in Quebec City, but spent many early years in Ottawa that included a stint in Algonquin College’s broadcast television program. Like Mr. Aykroyd, he’d drop out before finishing but landed on his feet. He toured Canada as a stand-up comedian but went to Hollywood to find more opportunity and got a big break as a writer for Roseanne. He would later carve out a unique niche at SNL’s Weekend Update desk, starting in 1994. He was fired by a network executive, who didn’t like his style, before the start of the 1997-98 season. Though he co-starred in some big movies, including Adam Sandler’s Billy Madison, those in which he took leading roles (Screwed, Dirty Work) failed to find either commercial or critical success. Mr. Macdonald continues to work in TV and tour as a stand-up.

Alanis Morissette

Alanis Morissette

32

The daughter of two Ottawa educators, Ms. Morissette was a creative dynamo from the age of nine, when she began writing her first songs. Her first single, Fate Stay With Me, was a local hit and she parlayed that into national success with her first LP, Alanis, in 1991. Her 1992 follow-up, Now is the Time, failed to connect, so Ms. Morissette decamped for Los Angeles. The result, Jagged Little Pill, sold more than 33 million copies worldwide and won four Grammy Awards. While none of her subsequent releases would reach those heights, Ms. Morissette is still celebrated as a groundbreaking musician.

he number of people working in Ottawa’s tech sector has tumbled over the last year, even as investors continue to pour money into the local industry. Statistics Canada reported that there were 36,400 people working in tech in June 2015, the lowest number since October 1996. It’s a dramatic reversal of the gains made in 2013 and through to April 2014, when the sector employed 64,200 people. Financing deals and successful initial public offerings continue to generate positive headlines for the sector. First-half venture capital levels are the highest in at least five years and have already surpassed the amount raised in all of 2014.

Chris Judge, head of operations, Novozymes Ottawa Chris Judge has held his current position as head of operations at Novozymes’ Ottawa facility for slightly more than a year after spending most of his career in human resources. Most recently, he was in charge of HR for Iogen. When that company’s enzyme business was acquired by Novozymes, Mr. Judge went with it and worked as the head of HR for Novozymes Ottawa before taking over the facility. One of his major accomplishments is that his facility has gone six years without a

lost-time accident. In a facility where people work with potential dangers including harsh chemicals and high-pressure steam, he says that achievement is not insignificant. “I’d like to think I’ve played my role in promoting a culture of health and safety at work,” he says. “We’re always reluctant to tout statistics like that because we feel we’re tempting fate.” He’s currently working to increase Novozymes Ottawa’s community involvement. “We’ve done a number of one-off initiatives,” he says. When the facility sold off its old copper wire, the proceeds went to five local charities.

Steve Dodds, CEO, Energate In September, Steve Dodds will celebrate his second year as CEO of Energate, an energy management solutions developer. His previous positions include seven years as the firm’s chief operating officer, co-founding contract manufacturer BreconRidge and holding several positions at Mitel, where he spent 17 years and rose to the position of vicepresident of operations. His eye is on his next major project – bringing Energate into profitability. He expects

that to happen before the end of the year. Having worked in the telecom industry, Mr. Dodds says he thought he knew about long sales cycles, but “it doesn’t even compare to the sales cycle when you’re dealing with utilities,” which can take up to four years, he says. The company has received some notable accolades for its work. Energate made Deloitte’s Fast 50 list of the 50 fastest-growing companies in Canada in 2009, 2010 and 2013. In 2013 it also made the list of the 500 fastest-growing companies in North America. For Energate, community involvement is “all about paying it forward,” Mr. Dodds says. The company has an internship program for Carleton University students. Mr. Dodds is also involved with the university's Mindtrust Leadership Development Program, a mentorship program for business students.

Roger Woeller, CEO, BluMetric Environmental Roger Woeller has been working in clean tech since before that term even existed. In 1982, he started working for WESA, which was then known as Water Earth Science Associates. Starting as a scientist, he rose through the company to become its CEO. When WESA was acquired by BluMetric, he became the latter firm’s chief corporate development officer before becoming its co-CEO. He’s been the company’s sole chief executive since March 2014. His educational background includes a bachelor of science degree in geology and environmental studies as well as a master’s degree in hydrogeology. It’s a career that’s allowed him to work “in over 25 countries and throughout North

America – from the tropics to the high Arctic – for a variety of clients including governments, airlines and mines.” Some notable projects among those include decommissioning a military base in the United States as well as dealing with soil and groundwater contamination from unexploded artillery shells and bombs. He also worked on an engineered wetland system that cleans wastewater for an aluminium smelter and refinery in Saudi Arabia without using chemicals. Because it allows the water to be reused, it saves million of litres of water daily as well as millions of dollars every year. Mr. Woeller’s community involvement includes being a member of the Canadian Ski Patrol, a volunteer-based first aid organization, and being a volunteer firefighter for more than 25 years.

FINANCE/FAMILY FIRMS

Century-old, family owned Written by Steven Fouchard Many businesses pass from one generation to another, but these Ottawa companies have remained under the same family’s ownership for a century or more:

Fulton's Pancake House and Sugar Bush The Fulton family has been producing maple syrup in eastern Ontario since the early 1840s, when John Fulton and his brothers first arrived in the area from Scotland. The operation is currently owned by the fourth generation of Fultons, and includes a 120-seat restaurant and retail maple shop in addition to its maple production facility. Halogen employees joined Toronto Stock Exchange officials to officially open the market on May 17, 2013, the day shares of the Ottawa software firm began trading. PHOTO COURTESY OF THE TMX GROUP

A.H. Fitzsimmons 1878 Co. As the name suggests, this local real estate brokerage has been in operation in the capital region for more than 135 years. In addition to being a founding member of the Ottawa Real Estate Board, A.H. Fitzsimmons was also party to the development of the Photo Co-op System, a precursor to the Multiple Listing Service.

down debt. Some observers predicted lessthan-rosy results and were proved correct when Mitel shares fell more than 12 per cent on its debut. One analyst quoted by the New York Times, called it an “unmitigated disaster.” More recently, however, Mitel shares have nearly quadrupled in value since late 2012.

Halogen Software

Smart Technologies

The developer of employee management software ended an 18-month drought of Canadian tech IPOs when it went public in 2013. The company didn’t disappoint, issuing nearly 5 million common shares for total proceeds of $55 million. A report from Bloomberg pegged its market capitalization at $275 million and Halogen shares jumped 15 per cent on the TSX during its first day of trading. As then-CEO Paul Loucks previously told OBJ, “That was the day you knew you had success.”

The Calgary-based digital whiteboard firm, which had substantial manufacturing facilities in Ottawa, raised $660 million in its 2010 IPO. A report from Bloomberg report pegged it as the second-largest U.S. IPO of the year and the biggest from a Canadian company in at least a decade. PHOTO BY COLE BURSTON

ttawa software firm Shopify grabbed the spotlight earlier this year with its US$131-million initial public offering. It was the latest local company to make a public debut in recent years. Here are the stories of other IPOs originating in the nation’s capital:

Kinaxis Just over a year after Halogen’s TSX debut, this supply chain management solutions made headlines with its $100.6-million IPO. Its share price shot up 14 per cent on opening day. “We’re pleased to see increased inbound interest from not only potential investors, but also from employees,” chief financial officer Richard Monkman previously told OBJ.

Mitel Networks Mitel’s 2010 IPO was, at the time, Ottawa’s largest-ever. Valued at US$147.37 million, it was below the $230-million goal but still enabled the company to significantly pay

Tweed Marijuana The first Canadian medical marijuana supplier to go public, this Smith Falls-based operation made a solidly impressive debut in April 2014. Tweed ended up with a market cap of $90 million and was the most actively traded share on its inaugural day of trading on the TSX Venture exchange. “It’s the first day, and it’s a phenomenal first day,” chairman Bruce Linton told the Huffington Post.

The Marchand story began in 1892 with Paul Eugène, who worked on the construction of hydroelectric dams in the Ottawa and Montreal areas. His son, Eugène François, returned to Canada after serving in the First World War and studied electrical engineering. After a stint working for Gatineau Power (which subsequently became part of Hydro Quebec), Eugène François teamed up with his three brothers to open an electrical distribution business on Sparks Street in downtown Ottawa. Jacques Marchand purchased the business from his uncles and father in 1986. Marchand Lighting and Electrical currently has three showrooms across Ottawa and Gatineau.

Sanderson Roofing Sanderson Roofing was founded in 1895 by John Sanderson, who had been working for another company when he decided to strike out on his own. He passed away in 1908 in his 30s, but left behind a considerably expanded Sanderson Roofing. Mr. Sanderson was succeeded by his sons, Herbert and Arthur, who managed it through the Great Depression and the two world wars. Herbert Sanderson’s son-in-law, Lloyd Mann, was hired in the late 1940s. He would later become president and be succeeded by his son, Donald, who runs the company today.

E.R. Fisher Menswear E.R. Fisher has been a fixture in Westboro for many years, but Emerson Ralph Fisher opened the original store on Sparks Street in the fall of 1905. The $30,000 loan that got him started was paid back quickly. Mr. Fisher’s son, Bud, would take over the business in 1938 following his father’s death. The loyal and capable staff kept things running while Bud Fisher served in the Canadian Navy during the Second World War. His sons – Richard, Tony and Peter – took the helm after their father retired. Peter Fisher’s daughter, Sonia, purchased a majority shareholding interest in the business from her uncle Tony and aunt Susan in 2009 and still works closely with her father.

he proportion of tourists visiting Ottawa from Canadian provinces other than Ontario and Quebec increased for at least the second straight year in 2014, according to Ottawa Tourism data. In 2012, 24 per cent of visitors to Ottawa came from eastern, western and northern Canada as well as the Prairie provinces. That increased to 32 per cent last year as the proportion of visitors from Ontario and Quebec shrank. At the same time, the number of passengers using the Ottawa International Airport to fly to or from domestic destinations climbed 2.1 per cent last year, even as the number of international travellers declined.

WHO'S WHO Profiles of key executives at some of the top catering companies in Ottawa-Gatineau. See page 51 for a complete list of the sector’s largest firms in the region. Profiles by Jacob Serebrin

Sheila Whyte, owner, Thyme & Again For the owner of a catering company, Sheila Whyte’s educational background in western civilization and literature might appear somewhat unusual. Still, her time at university indirectly led to her interest in the catering business. “I supported myself while I was there by working for a catering company and that’s where I got my bug,” she says. After returning to Ottawa, she worked for other catering companies before deciding to

start her own business in 1991. Some of the notable projects she’s worked on include catering the VIP tents and staff meals at Ottawa Bluesfest. She’s also had a partnership with the Ottawa Jazz Festival since 2003. Ms. Whyte’s company is one of the cofounders of Savour Ottawa, an organization that promotes local food. The company also supports the Ottawa Mission and the Parkdale Food Centre. Such work has led to several awards for Ms. Whyte, including a Community Builder award and being named Businesswomen of the Year, among others. PHOTO BY LOIS SIEGEL

Steve Lachance, founder and president, Bytown Catering Steve Lachance has been running Bytown Catering since he started the business in 1996, but its origins go back much further. In 1989, while studying economics at the University of Ottawa, he went into business by opening a chip wagon. That grew into three chip trucks, an ice cream shop, a popcorn shop, video store and a maintenance contract on campus. In 1996, he started catering part-time. It became his full-time focus in 1999. When it comes to notable projects, Mr. Lachance points to three events he’s done for Vélo Québec, a Montreal-based group that

encourages cycling. The most recent one, a bike tour of the Simcoe, Welland and Niagara region, saw his company feed 2,000 cyclists for six days. That’s a total of more than 32,000 meals. Bytown Catering has won multiple awards. It’s received the Consumer’s Choice Award 15 years in a row as well as the Better Business Bureau’s Torch Award for Marketplace Trust in 2010. Mr. Lachance was named one of OBJ’s Forty Under 40 in 2008. That year he also won Entrepreneur of the Year from the Regroupement des gens d'affaires de la Capitale Nationale. The business has a high level of community involvement, including a golf tournament that marked its 15th year in August that raises money for St. Joe’s Supper Table and ALS Ontario, he says. Mr. Lachance has also sat on several boards and his business caters several events for nonprofits at cost.

Ann Rickenbacker, director of catering sales, Westin Ottawa Ann Rickenbacker has worked in the hotel industry since 1998 and will mark her sixth year in her current position later in 2015. Her educational background is in hotel and restaurant management, which she studied at Algonquin College after completing a degree in French at the University of Western Ontario. In addition to prospecting and working with clients as they plan their events, she also runs the hotel’s internal events, which means working directly on its community involvement. Among those events are the Christmas Cheer Breakfast, which raises money for several

local charities. There’s also a Christmas party for the St. Joe’s Women’s Centre, a dinner event that served more than 200 women and children last year. She also works on the Quality of Life Gala, sponsored by the Westin Ottawa, which raises money for St. Joe’s. Ms. Rickenbacker says some of the notable projects she’s worked on include organizing the United States Embassy’s Fourth of July party for four years. That event attracts between 3,000 and 4,000 people. A certified sommelier, Ms. Rickenbacker is continuing to pursue her wine studies and is helping with the hotel’s wine list.

SPORTS

Fair-weather days: Four Ottawa sport success stories From the Senators’ surprisingly complex Stanley Cup history to the comparatively brief history of the Ottawa Lynx, here are a few of the stories behind the capital’s more notable championship-winning sports teams: Written by Steven Fouchard

Ottawa Senators The Sens’ history with the Stanley Cup is somewhat murky and historians disagree over how many championships the team ought to be credited with prior to 1915 (it’s either nine, 10 or 11, depending on who you ask). If one jumps to the early NHL years, things start to get interesting with the so-called ‘Super Six’ period of the 1920s in which the team finished the regular season in first place seven times and won four Stanley Cups. But the team was in bad financial shape by the late ’20s, in part because Ottawa was the league’s smallest market. Attendance was on an upswing in the ’30s but not enough to sustain the team, which did not return for the 1934-35 season. Fans of the reincarnated Senators are still waiting for the Stanley Cup to return to Ottawa.

1975 Gee-Gees While the University of Ottawa’s men’s football program dates back to the late 1800s and has been consistently strong and competitive, the 1975 Gee-Gees set an especially high bar. Coach Don Gilbert, a CFL alumnus

who played for the Ottawa Rough Riders and Winnipeg Blue Bombers, led the team to a perfect 11-0 regular season (the team also went undefeated in the 2014 regular season). When the Gee-Gees later defeated the Calgary Dinos in the 1975 Vanier Cup game, they became the first undefeated team to become Canadian university football champs. That was just one of several milestones for the team. Twenty-one players from the 1975 Gee-Gees would be selected for the CFL draft, setting a Canadian Interuniversity Sports record. Players from the squad were selected 13 times to play on CIS all-star teams. The entire team was inducted this year into the Gee-Gees Football Hall of Fame – the first time a full team has been included – as well as the Ottawa Sports Hall of Fame.

A statue at TD Place pays tribute to legendary Ottawa Rough Riders coach Frank Clair.

(1973 and 1976). Those would be the Rough Riders’ last Cup wins before the team entered a period of decline and folded in 1996.

Ottawa Rough Riders

Ottawa Lynx

Ottawa’s pro football franchise won back-to-back Grey Cups in 1925 and 1926. Technically, however, credit goes to the Ottawa Senators, a name they adopted in 1925 and would play under until 1927. As the Rough Riders, they’d win again in 1940 and 1951. Legendary coach Frank “The Professor” Clair would lead the team to three Cup wins in his 14 seasons at the helm (1960, 1968 and 1969) and rack up a stellar 116-75 record. The postClair ’70s were also good years in which a mix of rookies and veterans of the Clair era charged to two more Grey Cup victories

Launched by Ottawa 67’s owner Howard Darwin in 1993, the capital’s own Triple-A International League team played 14 seasons and 1,000 games at Lynx Stadium. Initially affiliated with the Montreal Expos before becoming a farm team for the Baltimore Orioles and, later, the Philadelphia Phillies, the Lynx won the league championship in 1995. Sadly, the team would never reach those heights again before being sold and relocated to Allentown, Pa., for the 2008 season.

Banners marking the championships won in the Senators' early history hang from the roof of the Canadian Tire Centre.

WHO'S WHO Profiles of key executives at some of the top film and television companies in Ottawa-Gatineau. See page 66 for a complete list of the sector’s largest firms in the region. Profiles by Jacob Serebrin

Ed Blomeley, CEO, The Blomeley Group of Cos. Ed Blomeley got his start working in radio broadcasting before moving into TV and, now, streaming video over the Internet. He’s the president and CEO of Blomeley Communications, a company he started in 1988. His previous positions include working in radio and as a freelance sports broadcaster, as well as spending six years working for CJOH-TV. While covering the Calgary Olympics, he heard about an opportunity in Ottawa. “At that time,” he says, “Ottawa didn’t really have a core of sports broadcasters.” So he came back to the city and set up shop.

His educational background is in broadcasting, which he studied at Algonquin College. Some of his notable projects include producing Don Cherry’s Rock’em Sock’em DVDs every year as well as working on the coverage of three Olympic Games. He’s currently in the process of developing and launching an online television channel named TruckGuysTV. Given his long history in the sports broadcasting world, it’s no surprise that Mr. Blomeley’s favourite TV programs are sportsrelated. He says he loves the beginnings and ends of sports broadcasts – the pundits, the features, the intros and recaps.

Chris Knight, owner, Gusto TV Chris Knight is the owner of Gusto TV. While he has only been in his current position for slightly more than a year, he’s been running TV production firms for nearly two decades. He started Knight Enterprises in 1997. Originally a producer of TV programming for other broadcasters, the company entered the broadcasting business with the launch of Gusto TV in December 2013. The food-focused TV channel now reaches four million homes across Canada. Going into TV was a change for Mr. Knight. His educational background includes three years

studying commerce at the University of Ottawa. While some of his notable projects include writing eight cookbooks and producing hundreds of hours of TV, they pale in comparison to launching Gusto TV. “When we launched, everyone told me that I was crazy, that a small independent company – particularly one based in Ottawa – does not get into the broadcasting game (because) it’s the dominion of the big billion-dollar corporations,” he says. His awards and recognition include multiple Gemini nominations, a James Beard Award for food media and a Gourmand World Cookbook Award. The channel’s community involvement includes supporting the Canadian Cookbook Awards, sponsoring the Devour! The Film Food Fest in Nova Scotia and co-sponsoring Operation Big Turkey with Farm Boy, which feeds around 1,500 people in need on Christmas Eve.

Pat McGowan, CEO, inMotion Pat McGowan says his work is all about creating an experience. He’s the owner of inMotion, a TV, video and film production studio. Mr. McGowan bought the company in 1998 but his background in the local film and TV production industry goes back further than that. In 1987, he started to work with sound – first as a composer and later doing audio postproduction. Before purchasing inMotion, he owned a company named Blue Turtle Sound. One of inMotion’s recent notable projects was video production work for the Canadian

Museum for Human Rights. Over the course of a year, Mr. McGowan and his team produced 66 different pieces of video that are on display at the museum. The company also co-produced a TV series about aboriginal firefighters in northern Ontario for APTN, called Playing With Fire. The company’s community involvement focuses on producing videos for charities on a pro-bono basis. “We have a program at our company called Play It Forward,” Mr. McGowan says. Through that program, he’s helped Carefor Health & Community Services, the Snowsuit Fund and supported health-care research.

Biggest influence My dad. I learned from him the details of how to conduct business as well as how to achieve work-life balance. He was a hard-working individual and was always available to help his family and friends in whatever capacity he could. My father. He was great with dealing with people in the industry. He was very fair and kind. He was also a great father. My dad. He has always conducted himself with the highest ethics and has always chosen the high road. In starting the brewery with him, he was always there to be a sounding board, a confidant and a friend who believed in me. My father, due to his entrepreneurship and belief that if you work hard and believe in yourself, you will be successful in life. My Grammie Glendenning. The kindest, most caring, most forgiving person I know. She taught me how a good person carries oneself. My uncle. I was impressed by his dedication to his work and what he has achieved. He built a company from scratch and today it’s one of the biggest in his trade. My mother. She taught me at a very young age that things don’t always go your way and life can be hard, but if you work hard and stay focused, success will follow. My father. He led by example with his work ethic, loyalty and honesty. Jack Layton taught me more than any other person I’ve ever worked with. His openness to new ways of doing business and politics will forever be with me. My family, coach/mentor, realtors, leadership team and support staff I work alongside every day. I am blessed to go to work with entrepreneurs and be surrounded by people who want to do more. Christopher Van Barr, the senior partner in my litigation group at Gowlings. He is a role model in terms of his legal expertise, client service standards and work-life balance. My parents always worked tirelessly and had their own side projects. When I was young, my father once said, "Buying property can be as easy as buying candy." An easy way to explain managing property and leverage to an eight-year-old. It stuck. My business partners are incredible and they have been the biggest influences on me, but also my parents, my in-laws, my sister and of course my incredible wife. I will say, however, that my father-in-law has been a huge influence on our business on a mentoring level. My mom always told me you have to love what you do and if you don’t, do something else. My parents. They taught me what hard work and drive could accomplish and, more important, that work could and should be fun.

My dad. He was the type of guy who would treat a warehouse worker or service person with the same respect as he would a CEO. He truly took pride in his work and knew the value of providing exceptional customer service. Aydin Mirzaee, my mentor and boss while I worked at Fluidware.

Honours bachelor of Landing a pilot contract with Chapters/Indigo, from initial ConnectOTT arts in Russian, contact to verbal agreement, in less than four days. concentration in German, University of Ottawa (2008) MBA, Carnegie Mellon Launching the permanent stamp at Canada Post in 2007.

ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT/CORPORATE LEADERS

Ottawa on film: Eight movies shot in the capital Written by Steven Fouchard

O

ttawa may still lag behind Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver as a Canadian movie production hub, but the city placed a renewed emphasis on attracting productions with the founding of the Ottawa Film Office by Invest Ottawa in 2012. There are signs that the effort is paying off, judging by this (by no means exhaustive) list of recent made-inOttawa movies and some of the stars the productions brought to town. Summer’s Blood (2009) Ottawa’s own Lee Demarbre (the man also responsible for the film Jesus Christ: Vampire Hunter) directed Ashley Greene in this scare-fest. Ms. Greene, who also played Alice Cullen in the Twilight series, is a young woman who’s stalked by not just one killer, but a whole family of them as she searches for the father she’s never met. Sacrifice (2011) Academy Awardwinner Cuba Gooding Jr. and Christian Slater costarred in this action thriller that includes a background cameo by the City Centre complex off Scott Street. Despite actually being quite a vibrant commercial space, the warehouses and office building can still show off its industrial past. Metal Tornado (2011) This made-for-TV disaster epic features Lou Diamond Phillips (who played rocker Richie Valens in La Bamba) battling a man-made “magnetic vortex.” Mr. Phillips also spent time in both Ottawa and Montreal shooting a monster flick named Carny in 2008. It was then that he told the Ottawa Citizen, over lunch at Metcalfe’s Main Street Bar & Grill (which he said made a mean liver and onions), that he finds Canadian film crews to be particularly polite. The Day (2011) The mood is a little heavier in this story of post-apocalyptic survival. Dominic

Top executives: Five celebrated CEOs Written by Steven Fouchard

Monaghan of Lost and the Lord of the Rings trilogy plays a relatively small part despite being featured prominently on the poster. A Google search suggests local media didn’t pay the movie much attention, despite Mr. Monaghan’s obvious star power. An interesting fact about The Day, via the movie website IMDB: it was shot completely in sequence, a rarity in the industry. House at the End of the Street (2012) Ottawa’s Zed Filmworks scored a coup by casting Jennifer Lawrence in this homegrown thriller just before she attained mega-star status with the Hunger Games series. Her Canadian co-star, Max Thieriot, later told MTV that Ms. Lawrence was “really cool. (A) down-to-earth girl from Kentucky.” House at the End of the Street also featured Elisabeth Shue, who appeared in The Karate Kid and Adventures in Babysitting, among other films. Penthouse North (2013) Michael Keaton, star of Tim Burton’s Batman films, headlined this suspense thriller. Scenes were filmed all over downtown, including on Metcalfe Street and at the Chateau Laurier. A report from CTV noted that there’d been few sightings of Ms. Keaton and co-star Michelle Monaghan, who also appeared in Mission: Impossible III and True Detective. Clown (2013) Peter Stormare (the quiet, pancake-loving killer in the Coen Brothers’ Fargo) was topbilled in this evil clown story. Co-star Eli Roth is better known as the director of the ultra-gruesome Hostel films. Two Countries (in production) A product of the south Indian state of Kerala, this romantic comedy was shot in July and August of this year in nearby Almonte. CBC reported that its stars, including Matma Mohandas, are some of the biggest in India.

Shopify CEO Tobias Lütke is a tough act to follow. In 2014, his gamechanging e-commerce platform closed a $100-million venture capital deal, grew its customer base to 100,000 and moved into its current (and spectacular) space in the Performance Court office building at 150 Elgin St. He was the obvious choice for The Globe and Mail’s CEO of the year nod. He was given the same recognition at the Best Ottawa Business Awards gala. This year, Mr. Lütke and Shopify took things further with the firm’s debut on the New York and Toronto stock exchanges. He’s unquestionably one to watch and joins a long line of impressive Ottawa-based CEOs who have been recognized by OBJ and the Ottawa Chamber of Commerce. Here’s a recap of some of the other high achievers who have been given the nod:

Paul Loucks, Halogen Software (2013) Mr. Loucks, who recently resigned his post at Halogen, led the company to a $55-million IPO on the TSX. Born in Ottawa but raised in Prince Edward Island, Mr. Loucks led Halogen for 15 years and advised firms to work towards long-term goals rather than betting on overnight success.

Louise Wendling, Costco Canada (2012) While working in marketing for Price Club, Ms. Wendling received several promotions that ultimately led to the top job when Price Club and Costco merged. While the initial plan was to open just 10 stores in Canada, there were more than 80 and several additional locations in the pipeline when Ms. Wendling was named CEO of the Year.

Karen Kinsley, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. (2009) Pembroke-born Ms. Kinsley became a certified chartered accountant but found her true professional passion was for real estate. She worked alongside Ottawa real estate legend Bill Teron for several years before joining CMHC in 1987 and rising to the CEO position in 2003.

Roy Mlakar, Ottawa Senators (2008) Mr. Mlakar turned around a team that had filed for bankruptcy protection and was having trouble paying its players. By the time he was named CEO of the Year, average game attendance was 19,000 and ticket revenues were up by more than 25 per cent. The business leaders judging the BOBs in 2008 called him “an outstanding CEO” and said the team’s success “is in large measure attributable to the capabilities of the entire Senators organization, but especially its leadership under Roy.”

Roger Greenberg, Minto (2004) Minto, an institution in Ottawa real estate, was celebrating its 50th anniversary when its chief executive was named CEO of the Year. Part of the second generation of Greenbergs to run the company, he was keen not to take all the credit, telling OBJ, “This is not a CEO-driven company.” Minto was, and remains, a highly successful and diversified operation with holdings in Toronto and south Florida as well as Ottawa. Among its multi-unit properties is the 32-storey Metropole tower near Island Park Drive.

CONSTRUCTION PERMITS

TOP CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS City of Ottawa construction permits, July 2014 to June 2015 Source: City of Ottawa

The value of construction projects planned in Ottawa hit its highest level in at least six years in 2014, led by government office renovations, new condo buildings and the latest step in expanding the Rideau Centre. The city issued construction permits for an estimated $2.68 billion worth of projects last year, an increase of more than 12 per cent over 2013. These figures largely exclude the value of the Confederation Line light-rail transit project, Ottawa's largest transportation infrastructure initiative since the building of the Rideau Canal. Construction on the 13-station line is expected to wrap up by late 2017 and be fully operational by May 2018. The top building projects by value between July 2014 and June 2015 are:
