Each year, OBJ and the Ottawa Board of Trade choose 40 of the region’s top young entrepreneurs and business executives and recognize them for their professional achievements, expertise and community service.

In these profiles, OBJ highlights some of this year’s recipients – their impressive accomplishments, what drives them and how they like to spend their downtime away from the business world.
See the full list of recipient profiles here and be sure to check out photos of the 2019 gala here.



Education: Bachelor of science in biological sciences, University of Alberta (2004)

Biggest business achievement: As the first official employee at Assent Compliance, I’ve been part of the evolution of the customer success group over the past eight years.

Biggest obstacles overcome: Retaining customers through a period of extreme growth and technology advancements in our software platform and transitioning to the product management team with no formal background or training.

Biggest influences: My wife and boys. I was 24 when I met my future wife and 25 when I moved across the country to be lucky enough to join the lives of her and her wonderful dudes. That brought me to Assent, which has been the defining element in my professional career. 

First job: Cashier at Dairy Queen

Advice I’d give the younger me: Breathe. Failure is essential; you do not have to be perfect and you will learn so much every time things do not go exactly the way you had planned. 

Favourite pastime: Hockey

Favourite movie: I am a rom-com junkie! Pick one!

Favourite song: Courage by the Tragically Hip
