Alfonzo Criminisi – Elite Sweets Brands Inc.

There’s no faking the taste and texture of an authentic Italian dessert. That, at least, is the opinion of Elite Sweets Inc., which says it brings the flavor and quality of grandma’s delicious chocolate almond tortetufo, white raspberry cheesecake and other classic treats to the freezer aisle. The Brampton, Ontario, Canada-based company makes and distributes […]

Based in Toronto, Aurora Importing & Distributing Limited has been on a quest to deliver the highest level of product quality and authenticity in traditional Italian imports and fine foods from around the world more than 61 […]

Barkman Concrete

When sales reps for Barkman Concrete go to tradeshows, they run into a problem not uncommon in sales: people don’t believe them, but it’s not for the usual reasons. Barkman’s recent line of wood replica products so closely imitate the real thing it’s hard to tell they’re actually made from concrete. “People are down on […]

Dave Schaller – Delta-v Capital

You know the story. A team of tech-savvy disruptors risks all to bring their vision to the masses. They’re in it now and for the long haul, be the destination bankruptcy or billion-dollar IPO. Only, plans change. Products evolve. People grow. New opportunities arise, and these entrepreneurs may be keen to take advantage. Secondary liquidity […]

Epicure

After one of Epicure’s consultants teaches a cooking class at your house, you might be able to turn out authentic pad thai in as little as 10 minutes or whip up a healthy vegetarian omelet using the company’s microwavable cookware. CEO Amelia Warren says her company wants to remind people how easy it is to […]

Jim DeCarlo – StratWealth

“What’s your next?” A simple question, perhaps, but one that’s been known to stump a lot of otherwise smart folks who may not know just where they are going or what their holdings may enable them to do in life. That’s OK, assures Jim DeCarlo, the chief executive officer of Maryland-based StratWealth who helps clients […]

John Prado – Siemens Bolivia

Chief executive officers have their stump speeches, but given the opportunity to be heard, John Prado may opt for a lesson that encompasses history and political economy. Bolivia, the land-locked South American country of his birth and return, is blessed with natural resources that have not been used to full advantage. For far too long, […]

Michael Stafford – ASB Investment Management

It began, as so many American stories do, with risk and hard work. When John Saul arrived from Ireland in 1851, his first job involved landscaping the grounds of the U.S. Capitol, lending shape and substance to a city still in its infancy, and a nation not much older than that. Today, more than a […]

Osprey Marine and Mariner Seafoods

Business and politics don’t always mix, as was the case in 2014, when war in Ukraine and subsequent embargoes by Russia sent the companies that supply those markets scrambling to find new customers. Luckily, after more than 40 years, the Mann family says it knows how to navigate both meteorological and political storms. The family […]

Paul Carlson and Thomas Fautrel – Seventy2 Capital

A one-time rising star in the Maryland House of Delegates from 1998 to 2002, Paul Carlson earned the respect of educators by spearheading such initiatives as early childhood development, smaller class sizes and teacher training, but has long since found another calling in the investment world. “What I care about is helping people, in a […]
