Recognizing the Top 20 Leaders in Calgary

This month, Business in Calgary has unveiled its list of 20 recipients recognized for business excellence with the 2021 Calgary Leaders Award. Selected as one of the recipients is 4Seasons Transportation CEO Brooke Garcia!

The annual Calgary Leader Award recognizes the owners, CEOs and presidents of Calgary companies who contribute in an outstanding way to our vibrant and growing city. Calgary Business Leaders stand out in our community through their personal integrity, values, business initiatives, community involvement and innovation. Each year,  leaders demonstrating these qualities are nominated for the Business in Calgary Leaders program and An independent panel of judges assess all nominations to select the top 20 individuals. 

“Market leadership, innovation and community engagement were foremost judging criteria for me,” says judge Catherine Grygar, a partner at Stikeman Elliott LLP. “A Business in Calgary Leader, in my view, has the acumen to identify opportunities and potential where others may not, has an ability to translate vision into action, and is engaged in the communities where they work and live.” 

“The Leaders being recognized this year are exceptional in that the past 20 months have been anything but predictable,” says Trina Holland, Associate Vice President, Diversified Industries, ATB Business.  “Spanning a wide range of industries, the leaders have shown that the Calgary business community is vibrant, diverse and innovative. To be a successful leader in this environment has required levels of resiliency, patience, and unwavering optimism unlike we have ever seen.”

This year’s Calgary Leaders have businesses in a variety of industries, from robotics to consumer products, oil and gas to media and entertainment. Together, they employ close to 7,000 people.
