EY MARGOT MICALLEF CANADA GABRIELLAS KITCHEN SKINNYPASTAEarlier this week, we received the good news that our CEO Margot Micallef has been named a finalist in the EY Entrepreneur of the Year Prairies 2016 awards program. The awards are designed to recognize outstanding entrepreneurs for their financial performance, vision, leadership, personal integrity and entrepreneurial spirit.

Margot, who is nominated in the business-to-business products and services category, certainly fits the bill. She is CEO and founder of Gabriella’s Kitchen, not to mention president and founder of Oliver Capital Partners, a Calgary-based merchant bank.

From the EY press release: “Our entrepreneurs are building a better working world one company at a time,” says Rob Jolley, EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Prairies Program Director. “In this region, we are consistently impressed with the calibre of men and women who are leading businesses, driving our economy forward and providing jobs to thousands of people. Our judges have a tough job narrowing down these fantastic stories into winners. We have a top notch group of finalists.”

Click here for a list of all finalists, and we’ll find out who the Prairies winners are on October 13, 2016, at a gala in Calgary.

Congratulations to Margot and to all of the finalists!
