Techopia Live: Kyle Braatz, CEO of the Year 2022

Kyle Braatz is on a mission to change health care. That’s a lofty goal, but the company he leads and co-founded is growing in leaps and bounds with revenues exceeding $600 million. In September, Braatz was named the 2022 CEO of the Year by Ottawa Business Journal and the Ottawa Board of Trade.

Over almost 12 years, Braatz has taken the company from an idea he and business partners Brad Dyment and Chris Wise hashed out in his living room to a multinational enterprise that provides nutritional supplements and other natural health-care products as well as treatment plans to more than five million patients.

Now with 900 employees, about 300 located in Ottawa, Fullscript raised US$240 million in equity financing – the biggest such funding haul in the nation’s capital since the dot-com boom in the early 2000s – and acquired one of its biggest competitors.

There is no stopping the University of Ottawa alumnus, who is the 23rd recipient of CEO of the Year, joining a who’s who of local business executives, including Shopify co-founder Tobi Lütke, Calian Group’s Kevin Ford and Kinaxis CEO John Sicard.

CEO of the Year is sponsored by Boyden, a specialist in executive recruitment with offices in Ottawa.
