Popularly known as the Great White North, Canada has been an important pothole of world business deals today. And why not, for it is home to some of the most proficient deal makers and influential pedlars of the west. Call them business magnates or trade honchos, they are the true moguls of business who have helped Canada become a powerhouse that it is today. Who can undermine the contribution of Pattison Empire by still-effervescent Jim Pattison who has dodged age as just a number? Can you ignore the efforts by Heather Reisnman as the CEO of Indigo Books & Music Inc? The name Paul Browning is enough to define the next generation Canadian oil and gas market. Had Frank Mckenna had a LinkedIn profile, the internet would surely have been jammed! Does the name Mark Wiseman ring a bell? Sure it does, for he is responsible for managing the largest pot of investable money in Canada; his decisions affecting the fate of 18 million Canadians! The boardrooms and backrooms of Canada’s top business houses wouldn’t have worked as efficiently as they are, had these men and women not acted as torchbearers! Peek-a-boo into this section and update yourself with the profile, life and works of some of the most influential and famous Canadian business magnates.
