The 13th Calgary Leader Awards celebrate business leaders and their historic achievements. The awards celebrate the men and women who not only provide great services and products to their community but who have led the way the past 20 months.

“The leaders being recognized this year are exceptional in that the past 20 months have been anything but predictable,” says Trina Holland, associate vice president, Diversified Industries, ATB Business. ATB has been a major sponsor of the Leaders Awards for years. “Spanning a wide range of industries, the leaders have shown that the Calgary business community is vibrant, diverse, and innovative. To be a successful leader in this environment has required levels of resiliency, patience, and unwavering optimism unlike we have ever seen.” 

The judges used a range of criteria to choose the winners. “Market leadership, innovation, and community engagement were foremost for me,” says judge Catherine Grygar, a partner at Stikeman Elliott LLP. “A Business in Calgary Leader, in my view, has the acumen to identify opportunities and potential where others may not, has an ability to translate vision into action, and is engaged in the communities where they work and live.”  

Kevin won this award for installing a culture of care and awareness at Premiere Van Lines Calgary, resulting in a high level of service and a commitment to the environment and charitable organizations. 

“We are so proud of Kevin for his outstanding work and accomplishments. There is no one more deserving of this award,” says Magnus Olsen, Premiere Van Lines Inc. “Kevin amplifies the Phone family business ethics and values; he cares about his team, his customers, and the community.”
