- PROFIT and Canadian Business unveil 18th annual list of Canada's Top Female Entrepreneurs -
TORONTO, May 16, 2016 /CNW/ - PROFIT and Canadian Business today ranked Leigh Himel, Co-CEO of Gravity Partners Ltd. No. 4 on the 18th annual W100 list of Canada's Top Female Entrepreneurs.
"Gravity is a new generation of digital companies that are earning our place back at the Executive marketing strategy table," said Leigh Himel, Co-CEO, Gravity Partners. "We've been a well kept secret up to now, focused on producing significant results for forward-thinking clients in a challenging marketing environment."
"With a digital first, millennial generation you won't be successful using strategies from the past. The risk many companies face is standing still," said Himel. "By the time most marketing plans are baked and approved, they are already out of date. We built our company to understand this reality and change the way marketing planning is done for a networked world."
"The members of the 2016 W100 each possess the talent and tenacity to start and grow a successful business," said James Cowan, Editor-in-chief of PROFIT and Canadian Business. "Their remarkable achievements serve as proof that ambitious, risk-taking female entrepreneurs are integral to the growth of the Canadian economy."
Published today at PROFITguide.com, the W100 ranks female entrepreneurs using a proprietary formula that considers the size, growth rate and profitability of the businesses they own and manage. Full W100 editorial coverage will also appear in the June 2016 issue of Canadian Business and online at Chatelaine.com.
