Leaders of Tomorrow

June 26, 2014 - Calgary, Alberta

Rockwood Custom Homes staff were honoured to be recognized as one of 20 outstanding Calgary companies to be named as Business in Calgary’s Leaders of Tomorrow 2014. Allison Grafton, president of Rockwood, was one of the 20 leaders singled out to receive the award at a ceremony and awards presentation held at Calgary’s Metropolitan Centre this Thursday evening.

The host of the event, Business in Calgary (BIC) magazine is a monthly publication that writes about the people, trends and events that make Calgary a prominent western business centre. The magazine promotes the entrepreneurial spirit of Calgary and showcases the city businesses—from start ups to corporate giants—that make Calgary a great place to do business.

BIC’s Leaders of Tomorrow program recognizes people in the local business community who have contributed to making Calgary a great city, through their personal integrity, values, business initiatives, community involvement, innovation, and philanthropic activities. Leaders of Tomorrow are owners, partners, CEOs or presidents of successful private and public companies based in Calgary, and are the primary stakeholders responsible for the performance of their employees and company direction.

Said Allison Grafton upon receiving the award, “I’m humbled and honoured to be part of this great group of Calgarians receiving the Leaders of Tomorrow award this evening. The award is really a representation of all of the hard work and dedication of the entire Rockwood Custom Homes team. We have thrived in Calgary’s vibrant and robust economic scene and couldn’t be prouder of how Rockwood has grown over the past five years. A big thank you to Business in Calgary and all of the generous sponsors of the Leaders of Tomorrow program.”
