About the Award

Alberta’s Business Person of the Year Award was created in 1997 by Alberta Venture magazine to recognize excellence in the leadership of Alberta’s corporate community. The recipient is chosen for a combination of principled leadership, strategic thinking, unceasing pursuit of excellence and balanced workplace values. Alberta’s Business Person of the Year is the cover story for Alberta Venture’s December issue.

In addition to the cover story, the award recipient will give a 30-minute address at Alberta’s Business Person of the Year Awards on November 30, 2016 at the BMO Centre in Calgary.

Selection Criteria

The recipient will be a senior executive in Alberta who exemplifies exceptional leadership both inside and outside his/her business. The judging panel will consider a variety of qualities including but not limited to innovation, drive, fairness, passion and wisdom.

All decisions of the judges are final.
