Canada’s Top 40 Under 40: John Molson alum makes the list
Finance Executive says Concordia contributed to his success
The honourees were highlighted in the National Post, will be profiled in a feature article in the October edition of FP Magazine, and will also be featured on BNN Bloomberg in an interview series, Canada’s Next Leaders, throughout the summer.
Schlaepfer is president and CEO of Select Vantage Inc. and says that what we learned in the MBA in Investment Management program has contributed to his success.
“I’m in a field where, previously, there wasn’t a lot of academic credibility. Guys would rely purely on their instincts. Because of my education, the exchanges and banks took our firm more seriously. My MBA and CFA (chartered financial analyst) credentials gave me the skills to present what we do to the industry in a more data-oriented, professional way.”
Schlaepfer and the other recipients will receive their awards at the Top 40 Awards Night Gala at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on the night of November 6, 2019. Earlier this summer, Schlaepfer was named to Concordia’s 50 Under 50 Shaping Business list.

Getting to Know you
If you had to eat one thing for every meal for the rest of your life, what would you eat?
If I had to drink one thing forever, it would be tomato juice. So much salt. So tasty. If I could eat pho for every meal though, I would die a happy man.
What is something that you think everyone should do at least once in their live? Move to a city where you don’t know anyone! It is the absolute best way to figure out who you are and grow as a person. I moved to St Petersburg, Florida for 5 years from Ohio, not knowing a single person, and it was the best decision of my life. That, and fate / Tinder helped me meet my incredible wife while I was there (who happens to be Canadian, hence why I’m in Canada)!
What song would you sing on karaoke night?
Truthfully, I’ve never done karaoke. I’m terrified I would take it way too seriously and end up playing out decades of unresolved heartbreak a la The Beatles “In My Life”. That, or, I would rip it to Kendrick Lamar’s “Backseat Freestyle”.
If you could have dinner with any three people, past or present, who would they be?
President Obama, Stephen King, and Heath Ledger. I feel like those are three people I could toss a few IPA’s back and have some deep conversations with.
In Canada, we work with a number of brands including Smirnoff, Guinness, Aperol, Stella Artois and Budweiser and continue to grow year on year.
Work + Work = No Life
Having video only available in our largest meeting rooms was simply not acceptable. We surveyed the landscape and after intensive research we put a heavy emphasis on broadening this digital communication to all of our meeting rooms, bringing the high quality visual and audio fidelity of a large room system, to our medium and small sized spaces.
But why would we invest so heavily in outfitting our smaller meeting rooms with video?
So much information is conveyed via body language, and facial expressions, that not having it available is like losing one of your senses. When negotiating a deal of any kind, you need to have the most information you can possibly get.
However, we took it one step further: We have outfitted our team rooms with full video capabilities, as well as large 4K enabled TVs, so you can literally get the big picture.
In today’s fast-paced and highly connected business world time is money. This is why we are always trying to ensure that our clients are able to make the best use of the time they have. Video, not only cuts costs as well as improves business efficiency. Booking time to bring your whole team out to a separate location, running around with equipment, and taking breaks can be a constant distraction and ultimately a waste of valuable time.aluable time.
none of the details slip by you when you’re trying to get the big picture.
Do you use GoToMeeting, Skype, Webex or Zoom? Not to worry, our new Polycom Studio Video Bars support all major platforms.
This is just another way that The Rostie Group continues working hard to ensure that our clients have the best possible experience in our rooms.
