Toronto (April 19, 2023) Canada Pooch is excited to announce that our President, Domenic Finelli, has been awarded a 2023 Report on Business magazine Best Executive Award.

The Report on Business magazine Best Executive Awards is an annual editorial initiative which celebrates excellence among non-CEO leaders at the SVP, EVP and C-suite (or equivalent) levels. The winners chosen for 2023 represent exceptional non-CEO leadership in five functional areas: Finance; Human Resources; Operations; Sales and Marketing; and Technology

Under Domenic's guidance, Canada Pooch has become one of the top growing brands in the pet industry. His passion for innovation and commitment to delivering operational excellence across the organization have been pivotal in shaping the culture and vision of Canada Pooch. The Canada Pooch team is incredibly proud of Domenic's accomplishments.

“Dom is a one-of-a-kind leader. He has shown an unparalleled ability to evolve at every stage of our business. Dom has driven the evolution of Canada Pooch’s operations through rapid growth and has done an exceptional job expanding our operational infrastructure to accommodate our growing business complexity.” Jacqueline Prehogan, CEO of Canada Pooch. 

 The Globe and Mail launched the Report on Business magazine Best Executive Awards in 2020. Winning executives for 2023 were chosen after a call for nominations for leaders at Canadian public and private businesses, not-for-profits, institutions and/or academic institutions. Nominations were assessed by the Report on Business editorial team based on career background, leadership style, achievements, and impact.

Winners of the Best Executive Awards are profiled editorially in the April issue of Report on Business magazine, out online on April 19 and in print April 29.
