Dave Singh wins 2021 Report on Business Best Executive Award
Tucows’ CFO recognized through The Globe and Mail’s annual award, celebrating excellence among non-CEO leaders
April 23, 2021 – TORONTO – Tucows (NASDAQ: TCX, TSX: TC) is thrilled to announce that its Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Dave Singh, has been awarded a 2021 Report on Business Best Executive Award. Dave is one of ten leaders recognized in the Canadian finance sector and was nominated by his team for being a champion of equality, justice and charitable giving.
As CFO at Tucows — a global company dedicated to making the internet better — Dave is mandated with championing business growth, building the business for scale, and growing an elite world-class finance team. His contributions to the organization, however, go far beyond his role as a financial advisor.
“It’s no secret that the last year has been particularly challenging, for people and businesses alike,” said Jess Johannson, Tucows’ Chief People Officer. “If there was ever a time to keep the status quo, this was it. But rather than staying idle, Dave pushed us to lean into the issues at hand and to contribute wherever we could. From starting employee resource groups to introducing new charity initiatives, Dave helped us foster community in a time when we all needed it the most.”
The Best Executive Award is an annual program hosted by The Globe and Mail that celebrates excellence among executives at the SVP, EVP and C-Suite level. Each year the Report on Business recognizes 50 leaders working within the finance, human resources, operations, sales or marketing, and technology sectors who make an exceptional impact within their organizations.
“Dave has been a trusted partner at Tucows for over five years and I’m proud to see him recognized within the Canadian finance industry,” said Elliot Noss, CEO and President, Tucows. “Under his stewardship, we have undergone four critical acquisitions, evolved our financial practice, and have equipped our team with the tools and resources to scale the company at large. He is an admired leader and we’re grateful for the contributions he continues to make within — and outside of — our organization.”
Tucows — which includes Ascio, Enom, EPAG, Hover, OpenSRS and Ting Internet — provides network access, mobile technology services, domain names and other internet services. The company currently employs over 800 people worldwide and is slated to grow its dispersed workforce by an additional 20 per cent in 2021.
The Globe and Mail first launched the Report on Business Best Executive Awards in 2020. Winning executives for 2021 were chosen after a call for nominations for leaders at Canadian public and private businesses, not-for-profit 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, published online on April 23 and in print April 24. To learn more about the Best Executive Awards program and to see this year’s winners, please visit www.tgam.ca/BestExec.
