Atlantic Business Magazine's Top 50 CEOs for 2010 were announced Wednesday night at the World Trade and Convention Centre in Halifax, including 12 on the list from Newfoundland and Labrador.
Approximately 780 people joined the magazine in its 12th annual salute to Atlantic Canadian corporate leadership excellence.
According to a news release, in addition to business leadership, the Top 50 CEO awards also celebrate community involvement and civic pride. This year's Top 50 CEOs donate more than $38-million to charity, volunteer with 500 professional and not-for-profit organizations, generate more than $12-billion in annual revenue and create over 57,000 jobs.
Hubert Hutton, Publisher of Atlantic Business Magazine, says he has considerable confidence in the region's business prospects despite the economic downturn, and that this can be attributed to the ingenuity and determination of the Top 50 CEOs.
"That these 40 men and 10 women retained their charitable commitments while having to realign their corporate strategies to new global realities makes their achievements even more worthy of recognition," he said. "Atlantic Canadian corporate leadership has never been more deserving of celebration."
CEOs from Newfoundland and Labrador who made the list are:
Cathy Bennett, CEO, Bennett Group of Companies, St. John's;

    I agree 100% with Taxpayer. Any fool can run a quasi-government operation with the unlimited resources that can be made available to them by the government.

    There is a huge difference between an entrepreneur or small business manager and some hack feeding at the government trough.

    This is a joke right. CEO of Nf Liquor Corp is included in the list. Are they still telling people how they buy low and sell high? It is wrong to compare companies who have to actually compete for business to be lumped with the Liquor Corporation and Newfoundland Power. Other companies have a much harder time surviving and deserve proper reward for their achievements.
