About the Top 50 CEO Awards

Since 1999, Atlantic Business Magazine has dedicated one of its six issues per year to profiling Atlantic Canada’s most accomplished business leaders. Our intention is to give a worthy individual the recognition he/she deserves as well as to use their example to inspire other companies and business leaders to achieve similar success.

Nominations are submitted by our readers and nominees are judged according to: their corporate, community and industry involvement; their company’s growth in recent years; and, their responses to various managerial challenges. A written profile and picture of all 50 award winners is printed in our May/June issue (37,000 copies are distributed across the region). Their accomplishments are also celebrated at a formal red-carpet reception, dinner and awards gala.

During the gala, we also announce: our Top 50 CEO Hall of Fame awards (inductees are five-time Top 50 CEO award winners); and the CEO of the Year for the entire region. The CEO of the Year is chosen from the ranks of the Top 50 CEO award winners.

While Atlantic Business Magazine’s Top 50 CEO Awards are already recognized as Atlantic Canada’s premiere business recognition event, our constant goal is to surpass the success of the year before.
