CINEPLEX CEO Gets Nod From National Business Magazine


Ellis Jacob, president and CEO of Cineplex Inc., was one of four CEOs honoured in Canadian Business magazine's inaugural CEO of the Year awards. Jacob was named 2013's Most Innovative CEO and received his award at a gala dinner held in Toronto, November 6, 2013. 

According to the magazine, the CEO of the Year program focuses on successful strategies implemented by CEOs who have made a major contribution to the Canadian business community and to Canada's overall economic success. CEOs with less than five years experience in the role are eligible for the Top New CEO award.

Winners were chosen based on corporate performance in addition to a review by an independent advisory board consisting of Canada's top business leaders, academics and strategists.

"We all tend to be quick to call out a bad CEO, but we don't give great leaders nearly enough praise," said Canadian Business editor Duncan Hood. "With these CEO of the Year Awards, we are starting a tradition of doing just that, because good chief executives don't just create value for shareholders, they create economy-boosting value for Canada, through jobs, new products and innovations."
