MONTREAL – June 21, 2010. Pivotal Payments is pleased to announce that Philip Fayer, the company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, has been named one of Canada’s Top 40 Under 40TM for 2009.
“It’s truly an honour to have made this list, and to be considered among the country’s best and brightest,” said Mr. Fayer. “I see it as a tribute to the entrepreneurial spirit that we’ve established here at Pivotal Payments, and the exceptional job that our employees have done in growing this company and making it what it is today.”
Canada’s Top 40 Under 40TM is a prestigious national award program that annually honours 40 Canadians in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors under the age of 40. Now in its 15th year, the program is managed by founding sponsor The Caldwell Partners International. Other national sponsors include Deloitte, National Bank Financial, The Globe and Mail and WestJet.
Philip Fayer and his peers were selected from over 1,200 nominees by an independent advisory board comprised of 25 business leaders from across Canada. Honourees were chosen on five key criteria: vision and leadership; innovation and achievement; impact; community involvement and contribution; and strategy for growth.
The 2009 recipients of Canada’s Top 40 Under 40TM were featured in the June 7 edition of The Globe and Mail. They also attended a series of celebratory events in Toronto in early June, including an awards ceremony held at the Canadian Broadcasting Centre at noon on Tuesday, June 8, where they were presented with their Top 40 Crystal Cube.
