The Leadership Agency Launches Campaign to Recognize Canada's Top Leaders

Updated: Jun 29, 2018

Centrepiece of the campaign is the ‘We Celebrate Leaders’ video series that will recognize the diverse journeys of 12 best-in-class leaders





TORONTO – May 16, 2018 – Marking its first anniversary, The Leadership Agency, specialists in leadership and sales recruitment for business and high growth technology companies, today announced ‘We Celebrate Leaders’ (WCL), a video series that showcases the country’s best leaders, explores what it takes to be a great leader, and highlights proven approaches to retaining leadership talent. The first three videos in the series will launch on June 12, 2018.


WCL is a one-of-a-kind recognition program in Canada, profiling leaders from managers to CEOs at organizations ranging from disruptive start-ups to Fortune 500 companies. These successful individuals, who have demonstrated outstanding leadership, will provide valuable advice and insights into their journeys and experiences. With 75 percent of hiring decisions based on knowing, liking, and feeling inspired by a company’s leader, WCL will help CEOs of growth companies and HR professionals better understand what it takes to lead and win in this economy. Over the next 12 months, 12 leaders will be profiled in a compelling series of video interviews. The selection of these leaders is based on the following criteria:

  • Have been instrumental in guiding companies through business transformation;

  • Have successfully navigated tech startups through early growth phases;

  • Have built teams, disruptive technology solutions, or diverse workplace cultures that have been fundamental to their company’s growth.

“Leadership can be demonstrated in a variety of ways, and the journey to becoming a leader is different for many,” says Jamie Hoobanoff, founder and CEO of The Leadership Agency. “As leaders are constantly on the move, the average tenure of an executive in a specific role is 2.3 years. Add to this fact the increasing size and pace of venture capital investment in Canada’s technology startups, and you have a market where growth trajectories are the highest ever, and the war for leadership talent is fierce. ‘We Celebrate Leaders’ aims to recognize those trailblazers who are leading beyond their title, positioning their companies for success, and elevating Canada’s position on the world’s stage.”
