BNN Bloomberg: Jeff Freeborough, managing partner at Caldwell Partners and John Hughes, senior vice president at Private Enterprise, MNP, join BNN Bloomberg to discuss the 2020 Top 40 Under 40 honourees.
This year’s honourees were selected from a field of 1,000 nominations that resulted in 350 written submissions that led to about 100 individuals being chosen for an interview. Caldwell and MNP conducted the interviews virtually and then created a shortlist of candidates for the independent advisory board to consider. The selection meeting, which is typically held in person in May, was conducted over Zoom on Sept. 15, 2020. Some 35 people, including the advisory board comprising industry and professional leaders from across Canada, which includes past Top 40 recipients, took part.
Representatives from Caldwell Partners were on hand to answer questions and board members used the Slido polling app to cast their votes.
Each honouree was selected based on their achievements in each of four selection criteria:
- Vision and innovation
- Impact and influence
- Social responsibility
