EY Entrepreneur of the Year
EY Awards Gala

It was a privilege to be in the company of the EY Entrepreneur Of The YearTM 2016 finalists. An impressive turnout of over a 1000 supporters gathered in Calgary’s downtown convention centre for this Awards Gala. We were there to acknowledge the gutsy people who take the risks and hits of growing thriving businesses.

Of the 50 entrepreneurial finalists, Manitoba was strongly represented by:

Walt Morris of the Walt Morris Group of Companies
Elmer Hildebrand of Golden West Broadcasting Ltd.
Dr. Albert Friesen of Medicure Inc.
Brent Clegg of FWS Group of Companies
James Giesbrecht, Rick Kuffel, Trevor Maquire and Rudi Wierckx of RTDS Technologies Inc.

Walt demonstrates what it takes to be counted among these economic leaders. His desire to start, acquire and sustain profitable businesses puts him in the unique position to provide employment opportunities, and to serve the people in his community.

The winner hailed from Saskatchewan, a leader in global grain distribution, Murad Al-Katib of AGT Food and Ingredients Inc.

Business owners like Walt Morris, show it’s possible to live the entrepreneur dream, for those who stay focused, listen to their gut and never give up.
