EDITOR'S NOTE

Ottawa’s hiring boom

T

he National Capital Region’s hiring spree is back in full swing. After collectively reducing the local jobless rate to its lowest level in a generation in 2018, Ottawa-Gatineau employers once again pushed the unemployment rate below the five-per-cent mark this July. But with Statistics Canada only breaking the labour market down into broad industry categories, it can be difficult to discern what specific sectors and organizations are driving those job gains beyond the federal government (which, as one can see on page four, has a roughly similarly sized workforce as two years ago). This year’s edition of the Book of Lists uncovers a significant part of that story. With the support of commercial real estate firm Cresa, OBJ undertook one of the largest-ever expansions of its Book of Lists research. We nearly doubled the number of businesses surveyed in 2019 and added a new question to identify the companies with the fastest-growing workforces, measured by the net year-over-year gain in employee headcount. The results, which start on page 61, reveal both a broad cross-section of businesses as well as several discenerable trends. Security-oriented businesses – including global defence giants such as General Dynamics and Lockheed Martin, tech firms such as March Networks and personnel providers including Securitas – are found throughout the top-40 list. Several homebuilders also rank highly alongside local success stories such as Kettleman’s Bagel Co. and leaders in rapidly emerging technology fields, including autonomous vehicles (Ford Connectivity and Innovation Centre) and artificial intelligence (MindBridge Ai). This expanded research effort also allowed us to add new sector-specific lists to this year’s publication. Debuting in 2019 are rankings of the largest managed service providers (page 12), fintech firms (page 33) and digital agencies (also on page 33). What’s in Book of Lists On the following pages, readers will find detailed facts and figures on more than 600 companies, organized into dozens of economic sectors. Even in the age of Google, there’s no other resource that contains as much clearly organized information about the companies doing business in the nation’s capital. This publication is divided into five chapters

that focus on the city’s key economic sectors. Each section opens with a page of facts and figures about a specific industry and is followed by a Who’s Who guide that introduces several of the sector’s top executives. As always, the rankings of the largest firms – broken down into more than two dozen industry categories – are the heart of the Book of Lists. Each chapter closes with a mini-list, such as a look at Ottawa’s hottest real estate markets (page 28), some of the city’s fastest-growing tech firms (page 38) and top tourism performers (page 56). The back of the Book of Lists looks at the largest government vendors (pages 74 and 75), the biggest construction projects (pages 76 and 77) and the highest-paid executives in the private and public sectors (pages 78 to 81). A full index appears on the following page. Credit where it’s due This publication is only possible with the cooperation 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. OBJ’s researcher, Lisa Thibodeau, spent countless hours sending out surveys, organizing the results and interviewing local executives. The Book of Lists is produced by OBJ graphic designers Tanya ConnollyHolmes and Celine Paquette. Thank you to all the businesses who support the Book of Lists, particularly our cover sponsor, Commissionaires Ottawa. This publication is also available for purchase in a digital format, with our databases organized in an Excel file at OBJ.ca. Whether you prefer the print or digital edition, the Book of Lists is an invaluable business directory, buyer’s guide and research tool that will be a versatile resource for your organization throughout the year.

BUSINESS SERVICES

Steve Sampson Senior vice-president, Global Public Affairs After attending the University in Halifax and graduate school in England, Steve Sampson put down roots in Ottawa, where he would go on to become senior vice-president of Global Public Affairs, one of the capital’s largest government relations firms. Sampson found himself in the nation’s capital in 2000 when he volunteered to work on the federal Liberals’ election campaign. He climbed the ranks and served stints in the transport minister’s office in addition to working as a legislative assistant for the government house leader. When the Liberals were defeated in the 2006 election, Sampson found himself out of a job. He quickly transitioned to working for local manufacturing trade associations, which he says helped ease his transition over to Global Public Affairs in 2011. “I’m a big believer that government should not operate in isolation or behind closed doors,” he says. “If we don’t have good lines of communication, it’s just not going to work.”

Rob Mariani General manager and senior vice-president, Hill & Knowlton Rob Mariani has never been afraid of taking a risk. “I look at risk through a simple lens – I always feel confident in my ability to land on my feet,” he says. So when the opportunity to leave his job at Mitel and kickstart his own company presented itself in 2002, he didn’t hesitate. Mariani created Ascentum, an online program that helped connect governments and citizens online to discuss policy issues. In the 10 years he ran the company, Mariani surpassed his own expectations, employing 20 staff and creating a profitable business in an otherwise less-than-profitable market. Ascentum was acquired in 2012 by Hill & Knowlton and brought Mariani on board as senior vice-president. He became general manager in 2017, a move that has allowed him to stick closer to his family and take on a new challenge of leading the Ottawa team. “The democratization of policy and adding more voices to that process has been incredible,” he says. “I hope I’m infusing that same objective into this company.”

WHO'S WHO

Profiles of key executives at some of the largest PR and government relations firms in the region. See page 12 for a list of the sector’s largest companies in Ottawa-Gatineau. Profiles by Lisa Thibodeau

Managing principal, Earnscliffe Calgary native Andre Albinati has two very distinct passions: public policy and live music. After studying political science at the University of Alberta, Albinati began his career in provincial politics working for the official opposition in Alberta. Following his move to Ottawa to work in a federal minister's office and later as a policy advisor, Albinati says he connected with Earnscliffe in 2003, making the switch to public policy. “I feel very fortunate to be able to work in an industry that I love,” he says. “It’s a passion and something I love doing, especially with such an incredible team.” With over 15 years at the company, he says he looks forward to continuing to grow Earnscliffe’s diverse client list and broadening its national presence. When it comes time to unwind, Albinati has been known to drive to Montreal and Toronto to catch a concert and can often be found in various live music venues in Ottawa. “If I'm going out for fun, it's often because there is a good band in town,” he says.

Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real estate industry continued its hot streak in 2018-19 with commercial vacancy rates tightening, residential prices rapidly appreciating and home resale and new construction remaining at elevated levels.

Average home resale price Source: Ottawa Real Estate Board

The average home resale price surpassed $500,000 for the first time in June 2019, breaking through a symbolic threshold. A Royal LePage analysis found the aggregate home price in Ottawa rose 6.2 per cent year-over-year in the second quarter of 2019, surpassing predictions from the previous quarter.

Chantal Boyer-Casey Principal, 4té

WHO'S WHO

Profiles of key executives at some of the largest interior design firms in Ottawa-Gatineau. See page 20 for a complete list of the sector’s largest firms in the region. Profiles by Lisa Thibodeau

4té’s Chantal Boyer-Casey discovered her passion for interior design almost by accident. With dreams of becoming a professional dancer, Boyer-Casey stumbled onto interior design in her senior high school years and applied to Algonquin College’s design program. After graduation, she entered the workforce as a junior designer, gaining some experience at other firms, and joined 4té in 2004. Since then, Boyer-Casey has not looked back, taking over the company with her fellow principal designers in 2017. While she may not have pictured herself running a company, Boyer-Casey has found her place. She was named a 2019 Forty Under 40 recipient in recognition of her work to grow the business.

Sarah Oakley Principal, Parallel 45 Design Group Ever since Sarah Oakley joined Parallel 45 (originally Turnbull Design Consultants) in 2003 she has built a name for herself as one of Ottawa’s leading medical office designer, working on more than 100 projects in the city. From the time she graduated in 2000, Oakley has solely practiced commercial design, honing her skills and fulfilling her love of art and creativity. When the idea of taking over the company was presented to her in 2012, Oakley says she knew it was the right decision. Oakley and her business partners rebranded the company a few years later, giving the office a new look and the company a new name: Parallel 45. Since Oakley’s succession, the business has doubled in both size and gross revenue.

David Gibbons Principal, LWG David Gibbons has been working as an interior designer for the last 35 years, with a career spanning from junior designer to owner of one of the industry’s largest firms in Ottawa. Starting out in Toronto, Gibbons entered the workforce straight out of college. From there, he worked at a handful of other firms before starting his own company. After being bought out by a larger firm, Gibbons made the transition to Ottawa and LWG, joining the firm as an associate. Now approaching his 20th year with the company and 10th year as owner, he says the firm’s family-like atmosphere makes for a positive workplace. “We are very strong in ensuring our employees have a good life-work balance,” he says. “As long as they meet deadlines, we’re happy.”

OTTAWA’S HOTTEST NEIGHBOURHOODS Several Stittsville neighbourhoods, as well as the community of Leitrim, have joined popular areas in and around Manotick and several westend rural regions as Ottawa’s hottest real estate markets, according to data from the Ottawa Real Estate Board. The pace at which home prices are rising continues to accelerate. Between 2014 and 2019, 48 of 59 neighbourhoods saw prices jump by more than 20 per cent. That’s up from 21 out of 59 neighbourhoods between 2013 and 2018. Here are 15 of the hottest neighbourhoods in Ottawa, ranked by the real estate board’s home price index benchmark.

Benoit Lavigne Vice-president of managed services, SMITH Gatineau-born Benoit Lavigne has always had an interest in good customer service. He owned several Quebec corner stores in the mid-1980s, managing the locations for nearly a decade. In 1997, Lavigne’s career changed directions as he became increasingly interested in the technology side of business. He went back to school for programming that year, following the emergence of e-commerce. After completing a co-op at Microsoft, Lavigne was hired by Cactus Commerce in 2000. SMITH was born following U.S.-based Ascentium’s acquisition of Cactus Commerce in 2011. Lavigne stuck with the company and advanced to vice-president of managed services in 2014, where he has continued to grow the company. He says he hopes to double it in size over the next few years.

Chris Smith Founder and CEO, OPIN Software Chris Smith started his career as a technology consultant with the government and spent nearly eight years learning about the technical problems plaguing large organizations and how to find solutions for them. “I feel like being a consultant was really a stepping stone for me to start the agency,” he says. Since he started the company, OPIN has been recognized as Canada’s fastest growing digital agency and recently expanded into New York state. Aside from running the digital agency, Smith is also the vice-president of Kids and Code, a local organization supporting young people with a passion for computer science.

Vicki Iverson Co-founder and chief technology officer, Iversoft When Vicki Iverson’s career lead her down a path of self-employment, she never imagined that nearly a decade later she would be in charge of one of the largest digital agencies in Ottawa. With several family members working in computer science – her grandfather created a coding language called APL in the 1960s – Iverson came by her career choice honestly. Following stints at Apple and Sybase, she launched her own freelance business and incorporated the firm in 2010, creating Iversoft Solutions. The company has been growing steadily ever since, expanding to 35 staff and acquiring a marketing agency along the way.

TOURISM

Paul Akehurst Managing director, JPdL and Intertask Paul Akehurst got his start in the industry at a young age, stuffing and addressing envelopes in his basement for his dad’s event-planning companies. Both JPdL and Intertask Conferences were founded in the early 1970s by Akehurst’s father. Originally focusing on tourism and special events in Ottawa, JPdL has continued to transform under Paul’s leadership. When his father retired in 2010, Akehurst became managing director and followed his dad’s vision of running corporate events for local and national associations. “Ever since I was a little boy I always idolized my dad and knew my mission was to join his business,” he says. “My dad and I were more like brothers than the typical father and son, but I definitely still had the pressure of living up to his standards.” After attending university, where he played varsity football – something he still enjoys to this day – Akehurst found his way back to his father’s company. In 1997, he assisted with the organization of the Ottawa convention that saw the signing of a landmark global anti-landmine treaty, which he says was a highlight for him and accelerated his career in event planning. Now approaching his 10th year as managing director, Akehurst says he attributes the company’s longevity to his dedicated team. “Our people make the difference. Our staff and the relationships we have with our clients and suppliers, that’s what makes us successful.”

Daniel Mackinnon Co-owner, Blackbook Lifestyle When Daniel Mackinnon started Blackbook Lifestyle in 2010 he never imagined the company would be hosting the Juno Awards after-party just two short years later. After graduating from Carleton University’s journalism program in 2004, Mackinnon tried his hand at internships and freelance work at the CBC and The Globe and Mail. It was in 2006 that he started his own fashion and lifestyle magazine called Spade. With independent publishing proving less sustainable, Mackinnon opened the door to a new entrepreneurial pursuit: event planning and PR. Along with his business partner James Jefferson, the duo created Blackbook Lifestyle, a “smaller boutique full-suite firm” – which he says was a fairly smooth career transition. Using the connections he had made through Spade, Mackinnon built up an impressive portfolio including the launch of H&M in Ottawa, the opening of the first Andaz Hotel and of course the Juno Awards parties in 2012. “We really pride ourselves on being an owner-operated firm,” he says. “We love the city and are trying to do new and exciting things here.” Being a “one-stop-shop” for clients has helped the business tap into a niche market, and is a large part of what makes it so successful, he says. The company is able to take on every part of an event, including furniture sourcing and speech writing, which creates a great relationship between the client and the company.

WHO'S WHO

Profiles of key executives at some of the largest corporate event planning companies in Ottawa-Gatineau. See page 44 for the full list of the sector’s largest firms in the region. Profiles by Lisa Thibodeau

President, The Willow Group When Sarah Zgraggen isn’t practicing her putting, you can find her directing the team at The Willow Group – one of the city’s largest corporate event planning firms. Following a 15-year career in marketing for Stanley Black & Decker, Zgraggen saw the opportunity to use her knowledge of content creation and event planning in a new way. She joined the association management company The Willow Group in 2000, assisting the team in managing the company’s not-for-profit clients. “I always liked business and I have a very good business mind, so to me there is nothing better than running a company that runs other companies,” she says. Zgraggen originally joined the team as a marketing and communications lead, but in 2012 took over as president with the support of company owner and close friend Kathy Jones. “Having the right people around you and finding ways to encourage them and having them react positively to it is so rewarding,” she says. As she approaches her 10th year as president, Zgraggen says she hopes to continue running the company at its current pace. With around 10 employees, she says she’s proud to offer employees an environment where they can satisfy clients while maintaining work-life balance. Ottawa Business Journal obj.ca

Tourism partnership A guided bike and walking culinary tour of Ottawa takes visitors to some of the capital’s major attractions through the city’s scenic bicycle paths and helps them discover some of Ottawa’s hidden gems and must-see eateries in the Glebe, including Lansdowne Park and the Ottawa Farmers' Market.

Tie: Escapade Music Festival AND Ottawa Chamberfest Event of the year Two of the capital’s major music festivals – featuring decidedly different genres – shared top honours for event of the year. Escapade Music Festival attracts more than 30,000 electronic music fans to Lansdowne Park for a weekend of house, trance, drum and bass, dubstep and more. Ottawa Chamberfest, meanwhile, is the world’s largest chamber music festival, featuring concerts in beautiful Ottawa churches and offering a wide array of music. >

Ottawa Art Gallery New visitor experience Since its grand reopening following its expansion project, the Ottawa Art Gallery has welcomed more than 350,000 visitors. The OAG spans five floors, with more than 55,000 square feet of programmable space, including a dedicated gallery for the Firestone Collection of Canadian Art, which includes works by the Group of Seven.

Star of the City: Colette Latour of the Sheraton Ottawa Hotel Colette Latour wasn’t about to let a blackout keep her from being a shining example of customer service in the city’s tourism industry. The Sheraton Ottawa Hotel employee was among those honoured by Ottawa Tourism for going the extra mile to serve visitors to the nation’s capital in 2018. Latour, who went above and beyond to ensure a guest’s safety, was named the ultimate Star of the City during a ceremony at Algonquin College. After the guest’s Dublin-Toronto flight was unexpectedly diverted to Ottawa, his wife called the Sheraton to let staff know he had midstage dementia and was without a bank card or credit card. She says Latour arranged for her husband’s food, discreetly made sure his bus driver was aware of the situation and even followed up to make sure he had arrived at his final destination safely – all while dealing with a power outage at her own home as well as helping other guests who had been stranded from the same flight.

AWARDS, ORGANIZATIONS & OTHER BUSINESS SECTORS

John Bradley Owner, JT Bradley’s John Bradley has been involved in his family’s business for decades, from cleaning floors in his teens to taking ownership in 1994. The historic JT Bradley’s convenience store was started by John’s greatgrandfather in 1898 and has remained in the family ever since. While John spent much of his youth working there, he set off on his own path after college, getting a job with Schneiders Foods. “When the opportunity came up to get back into the business I decided to do it,” he says. “There’s so much good history there.” John has worked to keep the Navan business relevant, bringing two major partnerships to the store. In 2002, it gained an LCBO agency store, which was a “game changer” for the retailer. More recently, the company became a distributor for Purina Agrifeed, which Bradley says has been a huge draw for the local farmers in the area. “We knew that it had to be more of a convenience shop than a general store,” he says. “Urban Orléans keeps getting closer and closer, but that is also great because that means new customers are coming in.”

Don Mann Owner, Sanderson Roofing Don Mann’s career came full circle in 1980 when he returned to work alongside his dad at Sanderson Roofing. Mann spent many of his teen years working at the company, which opened its doors in 1895. In the summer, he would drive trucks and assist the sheet metal workers before returning to school in the fall. After graduating from university, he went on to work in Nova Scotia and Alberta with Parks Services as well as the Department of Lands and Forests. “About six years later, my dad called me up and asked me if I wanted to come back to work for him, and I immediately said ‘yes’ ... I think I was ready then, and I’ve been working here ever since.” Mann took full control over the company in 1995 when his dad retired, striving to maintain a high level of customer service. “We've never tried to be the lowest-priced roofer. We've just always tried to do good quality work,” he says. Mann has continued a family tradition of community involvement. He has served as vice-president on the Ottawa Construction Association as well as worked with the Rotary Club of Ottawa and Easter Seals Foundation.

Owner, Marchand Lighting and Electrical Jacques Marchand never pictured himself taking over his family’s company, but in his 33rd year as owner he says he still has lots of untapped energy left to give. Marchand Electric, an electrical and lighting distributor, opened its doors in 1892 and has served its customers in Ottawa and the surrounding areas for nearly 130 years. After studying to become a stock broker in Toronto and spending some years in the Alberta oil fields, Marchand returned to the company to assist his dad and eventually purchased it in 1986. “When I bought it, the company was under a lot of stress,” he says. “We had to make a lot of changes. We got rid of a lot of staff, changed all of our vendors and moved offices. It was tough.” Today, with his son, daughter and wife working by his side, Marchand says he is exploring more e-commerce options, increasing gross profits and expanding the product line. “I don’t want to get too oversized as a company because we won’t be able to fill orders as efficiently,” he says. “We’re workaholics over here and our customer service reflects that – we always get the job done.”

THE LIST

2019 FORTY UNDER 40 (LISTED IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER)

Stephanie Appotive

Krystal Cameron

39, director of operations, owner, Howard Fine Jewellers & Custom Designers

36, senior director, product market engagement and operations, Assent Compliance

Biggest obstacle overcome: Achieving an equitable and successful family business succession plan. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: Excellence is not a destination, it is a journey that has to be travelled every day. Maintaining a level of excellence requires a team of experts who have passion, empathy, vision, communication skills, respect, strong work ethic, grit and resilience.

Biggest obstacles overcome: Retaining customers through a period of extreme growth and technology advancements in our software platform and transitioning to the product management team with no formal background or training. Biggest influences: My wife and boys. I was 24 when I met my future wife and 25 when I moved across the country to be lucky enough to join the lives of her and her wonderful dudes.

Alexis Ashworth 39, CEO, Habitat for Humanity Greater Ottawa Biggest obstacle overcome: I was 24 when I became executive director of Habitat for Humanity in Halifax. I had no experience with construction, leadership or management. What I had was a passion for the cause and an entrepreneurial drive to succeed. The organization was building a home every two years when I joined, and when I left four years later we were building five homes per year and had opened a social enterprise, the ReStore. Biggest influence: Mark Rodgers, CEO of Habitat for Humanity Canada. He is a strong leader who isn’t afraid of change and is constantly looking for ways to improve our organization.

Ian Bingeman 39, executive director, Youth Ottawa Biggest obstacle overcome: Assuming the role of executive director unexpectedly with no formal training and little experience in the administrative side of the non-profit sector. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: Relationships are key. You can’t operate if you can’t trust, and you can’t trust if you don’t put a big emphasis on the small talk.

Joseph Carpinone 38, vice-president and partner, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton Consulting Biggest obstacle overcome: Leaving a secure and comfortable job to help build and grow a new consulting firm. Biggest influence: My mother. She helped instill confidence in me at a very young age. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: Controlling my emotions and finding a balance between aggression and passion.

James Ciesielski 39, chief technical officer and co-founder, Rewind Biggest obstacle overcome: Convincing myself to leave a “safe” job and go for it on my own. Biggest influence: My wife; she is all the things I am not but aspire to be. First job: I was the backup Ottawa Citizen delivery boy for my street. Advice I’d give the younger me: Relax ​– it’s not as bad as you think; everything works out in the end.

Francois de Bellefeuille 31, general manager, Spiria Digital

Katie Black 37, partner, Caza Saikaley LLP Biggest obstacle overcome: Despite being a single parent, I graduated second out of 168 students completing their third year of the English bachelor of laws program in the Faculty of Common Law. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: Communication is key: who is going to do what and by when? Effective litigation requires clear project management.

Chantal Boyer-Casey 37, principal, interior designer, 4té Biggest obstacle overcome: Completing the business succession within seven months of returning early from maternity leave and balancing being a new business owner and mother of two young children under the age of three. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: Challenges in business are critical to keep learning and growing. It doesn’t matter how much time and effort you put into your business, you’re nothing without a great team.

66

Biggest obstacle overcome: After becoming general manager, I kept my previous role as technical director and continued to perform both roles despite having limited time and resources. In addition, as a francophone working in a largely anglophone environment, I had to improve my English skills quite rapidly. Biggest influence: Stephane Rouleau, the president and co-founder of Spiria. He showed me that it is possible to do business while being transparent and being yourself. He leads a 150-employee company with integrity as a primary value.

Heather Desjardins 39, founder and owner, the Open Door Educational Services Biggest obstacle overcome: Bootstrapping my business while going through pregnancy, having a newborn and now a toddler diagnosed with autism has been a challenge. Biggest influences: Susan Barton has dedicated herself to raising awareness about dyslexia for parents and educators. My parents have always been a remarkable example of integrity, caring and living full and admirable lives.

THE LIST

2019 FORTY UNDER 40 (LISTED IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER)

Alex Dorward

Erin Fenn

29, chief operating officer, Simple Story; co-CEO and co-founder, AdmissionsConsulting.ca

37, chief operating officer, 1VALET

Biggest obstacle overcome: For much of my twenties, I struggled to maintain good mental health. For a long time, I was either completely unaware or in denial of the issues, which mainly stemmed from overworking and built-up stress. This typically resulted in flareups of my Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, which consequently resulted in weight loss and physical health issues. I eventually realized the situation and created a plan to tackle this.

Jana Dybinski

Biggest obstacle overcome: It’s an obstacle I seem to truly enjoy, and that’s being first to market. Be it a product, pricing model or leadership style, I’m willing to go first. That has required a ton of learning and tenacity. Biggest influences: My father worked hard and took pride in his career. My dear friend understands the art to the balance between working and living. My first mentor taught me “everything is easier when you realize it’s not you, it’s all of them,” and other salacious pearls of wisdom always good for a laugh and a reality check.

36, vice-president, marketing and culture, Rebel.com

Amy Friesen

Biggest obstacle overcome: Fear of being vulnerable as a leader. Leading with vulnerability and heart (especially in the tech industry) took courage and is the backbone of the work I’m most proud of. Supporting other leaders to do the same is a big part of my path ahead. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: As in life, the only thing we truly control in business is how we show up and react to whatever is in front of us.

Biggest obstacle overcome: Learning to be confident in my vision and my abilities. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: Not everyone gets you. When you take the leap to not only start a business but develop a brand new industry, many people won’t be on board. However, what you learn is to seek out the people who believe in you and your vision and build like you’ve never built before.

Kelly Elliott 38, partner, Canada director –​ practice support and optimization, Dentons Canada LLP Biggest obstacle overcome: Six pregnancies (three miscarriages and three babies) in six years while on my journey to partnership! Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: Hard work pays off, even if sometimes it feels like you’re simply treading water.

38, founder and CEO, Tea & Toast

Josh Garellek 35, founder and CEO, Arctic Leaf Biggest obstacle overcome: One of my ventures in which I invested a significant amount of my time and money failed in November 2018. I needed to step away from it for my own sanity. I had to learn to accept that failure and learn from it.

Sacha Gera Kara Eusebio 31, senior manager of strategic partnerships, Invest Ottawa and Bayview Yards Biggest obstacle overcome: Moving to Canada two-and-a-half years ago from the United States. After applying for dozens and dozens of jobs, the only offer I received was to do temporary data entry for Cornerstone Housing for Women, an organization that provides safe shelter for homeless women in Ottawa. It turned out to be the best thing that could have happened.

Mostafa Farrokhabadi 31, director of grid analytics and technology, BluWave-ai Biggest obstacle overcome: Getting out of my professional, emotional and personal comfort zone multiple times ​– for example, when I went to Sweden to get my master’s degree, left Sweden to come to Canada for my PhD and later moved to Ottawa to join a startup as the first paid employee. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: Know your audience.

38, senior vice-president, cloud products, Ribbon Communications Biggest obstacle overcome: Figuring how to serve in a demanding executive position while being an attentive husband and father to our triplet children. There is no cookie-cutter recipe or shortcut, and no one degree, course or mentor can prepare you for it. Most important lesson you’ve learned in business: People and relationships are the real assets behind any successful business. Employees will go the extra mile if you are empathetic and take the time to listen to them.

Elliott Gillespie 39, president, Gold Bar Whiskey Biggest business achievement: Taking an idea to market, then bringing that product to more than 25 countries in less than three years. Biggest obstacle overcome: Learning an industry from scratch and then building a global network of partners one by one. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: It is all about relationships. Few things can be achieved over the phone; meet people face to face.

2019 FORTY UNDER 40 (LISTED IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER)

Sender Gordon

Brandon Malleck

31, director of investment and leasing, Regional Group

33, manager, technical services and projects, Bentall Kennedy

Biggest obstacle overcome: Truthfully, I don’t feel that I have faced any obstacles. Every day brings its challenges; however, I see them as learning opportunities. As a fourth-generation family member in a family business, I am always focused on earning my own credibility and not getting painted with the brush of nepotism. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: Failure is not an option. A creative solution can always be found.

Biggest obstacle overcome: Leading a very experienced team with limited professional experience. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: Emotions cloud rational judgment; stick to the facts and don’t let personalities affect the logic (or a good night’s sleep).

Matt McEvoy Chantal Hackett 33, CEO, Sing House Studios Biggest obstacle overcome: Blending my artistic self and business self to an entirely new degree. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: Delegate and make time for yourself. During my first year after moving into my commercial space, I eventually burned out. Now, I say no a lot more and yes to the right opportunities so that I can have as balanced a life as possible.

Joanne Kudakiewicz 36, wealth adviser manager, Yorkville Asset Management Biggest obstacle overcome: Developing a new financial services division while helping design and build our home and caring for an incredible five-year-old daughter has been an adventure. Finding a work-life balance that works for me and my family has been incredibly important both professionally and personally. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: To be patient. Success doesn’t happen overnight, but with dedication and hard work you can accomplish almost anything.

Steve Lavigne 37, director of technology, OPIN Software Biggest obstacle overcome: Being a husband and father, I have always had to find the right balance between my professional life and my personal life. I am a bit of a workaholic and work doesn’t always feel like work, so finding that balance is something I have had to overcome. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: The importance of learning from everyone around me, from interns to CEOs. Everyone in an organization has something different to offer and, in most cases, has a different perspective on any given topic.

Cindy MacKay 39, fund development and marketing coordinator, Orléans-Cumberland Community Resource Centre Biggest obstacle overcome: We are a very small organization with a small geographic service area. Finding ways to grow our donor database and community support without creating donor fatigue is always an issue. Most important lessons I’ve learned in business: Surround yourself with people who challenge you to do more and be better. Ensure you take time to think things through before committing.

68

34, CEO, MaxBounty Biggest obstacle overcome: Transitioning our business to new ownership while ensuring that our staff and clients continued to have confidence in our business throughout the entire process. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: The importance of trust. Be true to your word and keep the promises you make.

Ron McLester 39, vice-president, truth, reconciliation & indigenization, Algonquin College Biggest obstacle overcome: Indigenous work has only recently become attractive to mainstream stakeholders. Finding an organization willing to explore this has not been an easy task. Most important lessons I’ve learned in business: My first executive leader told me to always remember three things: be friendly, be firm and be fair.

Aliasgar Morbi 37, managing partner, Brash Product Development Biggest obstacle overcome: Pivoting and persevering through financial struggles, family obligations and self-doubt. Biggest influences: My parents. They have taught me the importance of hard work and sacrifice in reaching for your goals. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: There is no single path to success. In my first startup, we had many advisers and mentors, all of whom genuinely supported us. But some pushed us in opposing directions and shared advice that was strongly dependent on their own perspectives and experiences. It took a few years of testing, pivoting and constantly reinventing to understand that each entrepreneur’s journey is unique.

Alex Patrick 34, president, Take the Shot Productions Biggest obstacle overcome: Convincing Bell Media and Netflix to co-finance Frontier despite the fact that they are fierce competitors. Biggest influence: My grandfather, John Sylvain. He taught me how to be a gentleman. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: That even the biggest obstacles or challenges have solutions.

Jacob Shabinsky

Christopher Thompson

34, managing director, Glenview Homes

32, president and co-founder, Whitewater Brewing Company

Biggest influence: My father, Mark, for his grit and determination. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: Always act with integrity. It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it.

Ali Shafaee 39, director, DNA Presents

Biggest business achievement: Providing year-round employment to a rural area. Biggest obstacle overcome: Lack of experience. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: Cash is king.

Danya Vered 33, vice-president, StrategyCorp

Biggest business achievement: Reaching the 10-year milestone with Escapade Music Festival. What started out as a one-day parking lot concert with a few hundred attendees has turned into a nationally recognized festival with more than 30,000 attendees. Biggest obstacle overcome: In 2016, Escapade suffered a big blow during the festival when adverse weather caused us to close down our main stage with more than 12,000 people already on site. With the help of city officials, local partners and a strong team, we managed to relocate festival-goers into the TD Place arena and continue the event with minimal impact to performing artists and fans.

Candace Sutcliffe 39, chief operating officer and co-proprietor, CA Paradis/The Chef’s Paradise Biggest obstacles overcome: Fear and selfdoubt. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: Transparency, integrity and humility will win every time.

Biggest obstacle overcome: Learning how and when to advocate best for myself and others. Biggest influences: My mother and late father. With six kids, their approach was always that you are only as happy as your least happy child. So you can celebrate your victories, but there is always more hard work to be done.

Hamed Zadeh 37, CEO, SINIX Media Group Biggest influence: My dad. He has told me to never aim for second place and to treat everybody with the same respect regardless of their social standing or race. He always challenged me and encouraged me to aim higher and higher. Most important lesson you’ve learned in business: If you consistently provide quality work with great customer service, your business will not only grow but flourish. Also, treat your employees and partners with the utmost respect and always over-deliver.

Joelle Zagury 37, owner and optometrist, Merivale Vision Care

Liam Swords 37, broker of record/owner, Plum Realty Biggest obstacle overcome: Moving out of day-to-day sales into a leadership role of growing the company. I had to create a unique value proposition to attract enough highly effective realtors to join Plum Realty. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: Take the emotion out. I was negotiating on my own behalf on a real estate deal and I got caught up in wanting to win. I lost all power and ended up “getting the deal,” although not on the terms I should have accepted. Looking back, I realize I let emotion get the best of me.

Elias Theodossiou 39, owner, EVOO Greek Kitchen and Mati restaurant Biggest obstacle overcome: Building and operating two successful restaurants while continuously battling Crohn’s disease. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: The importance of establishing key internal processes at the onset of opening a business. At first, my main focus was on customer satisfaction (experience, quality food, etc.) and not necessarily the back office of the business.

Biggest obstacle overcome: Building the business while being an attentive parent to our three children. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: Always tackle issues right away in a direct, honest way. I learned that avoiding difficult conversations or dancing around the truth does not serve anyone and can act as a barrier to progress.

John Zinati 39, owner and broker of record, Zinati Realty Biggest obstacle overcome: Maintaining a healthy work-life balance. I’ve often asked successful businesspeople what their biggest regret is, and the answer is always missing out on their spouses’ and kids’ lives when they were young. I’ve made it a priority to be there for my family every day. Most important lesson I’ve learned in business: Be persistent. When I was trying to break into the commercial real estate industry, I did my research and made a coffee appointment with a well-known broker. We met, and he said he was impressed but didn’t have a job for me at the time. I continued to keep in contact and never gave up until I sold him on giving me a chance to make my own position.

THAT INCLUDES...

*Thierry Mesana’s salary figure is a combination of his compensation from the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, where he is president and CEO, and the University of Ottawa, where he is a director. **Denis Gravel’s salary figure is a combination of his compensation from the Eastern Ontario Laboratory Association, where he is a pathologist and La Cité, where he is a manager. The provincial government does not disclose the work location of individuals included in its annual disclosure of public-sector employees who earn more than $100,000. This means that many Ottawa residents who work for Toronto-based ministries and organizations, such as those employed by the Crown Attorney’s Office, have been excluded.

The provincial government does not disclose the work location of individuals included in its annual disclosure of public-sector employees who earn more than $100,000. This means that many Ottawa residents who work for Toronto-based ministries and organizations, such as those employed by the Crown Attorney’s Office, have been excluded.
