About the Distinguished Business Leader Award

The Distinguished Business Leader Award is both a celebration of ethical leadership and a legacy to support future leaders. Co-presented by the Haskayne School of Business and the Calgary Chamber of Commerce, the award has recognized outstanding leaders in the Calgary business community since 1993. In 2019 we were joined in this endeavour by Calgary Foundation as our gala partner. Since its inception, it has served to honour exemplary Calgarians for their outstanding personal and professional achievements, commitment to community and business acumen.

Each year, the recipient of the Distinguished Business Leader Award is celebrated at an awards dinner. The gala dinner not only endeavours to recognize the exceptional contribution of our community’s ethical business leaders, but also to support our future leaders.

Since 2008, proceeds from ticket sales and sponsorships for the gala dinner have been directed towards the endowment of a scholarship that is awarded annually to a Haskayne undergraduate student who reflects the award recipients’ commitment to ethical leadership. A portion of the proceeds also supports new entrepreneurs with the Emerging Entrepreneur scholarship offered through the Calgary Chamber.
