Matt Llewellyn, Rockwood CFO wins 2022 Report on Business Best Executive Award

Annual awards program from The Globe and Mail celebrates excellence among non-CEO leaders

Calgary, Alberta 

Rockwood is pleased to announce that our CFO, Matt Llewellyn, has been awarded a 2022 Report on Business Best Executive Award. The Report on Business Best Executive Awards is an annual program to celebrate excellence among non-CEO leaders at the SVP, EVP and C-suite (or equivalent) levels.

The 50 winners chosen for 2022 represent the best of Canadian leadership in five functional areas: Finance; Human Resources; Operations; Sales and Marketing; and Technology.

Matt Llewellyn was one of 10 winners in the Finance category. It is his first award distinction from the Globe and Mail. Said Matt upon receiving the award, “It is a great honour to be recognized. And while I may be the named recipient of the Best Executive Award, it is truly a reflection of the great team I’m a part of at Rockwood and I share this with the entire Rockwood organization.” 

“In an industry rife with budget overruns and rudimentary financial practices and processes, Matt has been foundational in developing leading-edge practices at Rockwood, ensuring that financial intelligence is at the forefront of luxury custom home building. In his role, Matt has significant operational involvement, supporting and guiding other leaders across the Rockwood organization, forging critical links throughout the organization to strengthen the organization’s financial integrity, practices, and performance.  We are all incredibly lucky to have such an approachable, invested, caring, and exceptionally intelligent and capable CFO,” said Allison Grafton, President and Founder of Rockwood Custom Homes, as she congratulated Matt on this prestigious award.  

The Globe and Mail launched the Report on Business Best Executive Awards in 2020. Winning executives for 2022 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 29 and in print April 30.
