President, Hotspex Media
“Fortune favors the brave.” With that mantra, Josh co-founded one of Canada’s fastest growing digital media companies and was recognized as an EY Entrepreneur of the year nominee. His company was also recognized as a Top 100 Growth Company (#24) and credited with awards in digital story telling and innovation. With a strong focus on business results and client success he led his company to an acquisition in late 2018 by one of North America’s most innovative research and insights firm. Now overseeing a media team that is leading the way in cognitive behavior targeting to place ads in greater context, he works with advertisers all over the world to help their media dollars work harder and make advertising more relevant and enjoyable for consumers.
“I am so humbled to be part of the UIC. I think legacy is everything and it’s important to show my kids that you have a responsibility to give back and help those less fortunate. As a group we want to bring awareness to the causes and research that typically aren’t as promoted. With this group of brilliant and accomplished people and the incredible team at the foundation I know we can not only achieve our goals, but surpass them.”
