Welcome to the 2017 Power 50 list, which ranks the most influential people in the industry.
#45: Mark Freed, Genumark (asi/204588)
2016 Rank: N/A
Industry Experience: 23 years
The head of Toronto-based Genumark, Freed joins the Power 50 list on the back of strengthening company sales – which grew to nearly $50 million in 2016 – and his clear influence north of the border. His business savvy only tells part of the story, though, as Freed was honored with the 2011 Bess Cohn Humanitarian of the Year Award for his strong sense of social responsibility.
