Event summary produced by The Globe and Mail Events team. The Globe’s editorial department was not involved.
On May 27, The Globe and Mail’s Report on Business magazine hosted its first-ever Best Executive Summit, featuring winners from the second edition of ROB’s Best Executive Awards. The winners, who are awarded in five categories, represent outstanding leadership across a diverse group of industries and call attention to the impressive work happening at the C-Suite executive level across Canada. Nominations are strictly limited to non-CEO C-Suite roles, highlighting the important role played by other executive team members within Canadian organizations. As the program’s tagline states: CEOs often get the glory, but they’re not the whole story.
