This is Mandy Rennehan, the Blue-Collar CEO™.

The Cape Breton Partnership is pleased to announce that Mandy Rennehan will be this year’s keynote speaker during the annual Investor Summit on October 10, 2019 at the Keltic Lodge at the Highlands.

“We are thrilled to have Mandy be a part of this year’s Investor Summit,” says Carla Arsenault, Cape Breton Partnership President & CEO. “Mandy is a successful Nova Scotia-born entrepreneur that has an interesting story to share.  We hope her presence encourages new and returning guests to join us for what’s sure to be an exciting Summit.”

Mandy Rennehan’s called the Blue-Collar CEO™ for her ability to navigate between the white- and blue-collar worlds, using her (respectfully) uncensored style. She left her hometown of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, at 18 with a dirty hockey bag and an audacious dream. By 19, she founded Freshco.ca (not the grocery store!), Canada’s #1, full-service, reconstruction and retail maintenance provider operating across Canada and the eastern United States serving clients like Anthropologie, Apple, Banana Republic, Home Depot, Lululemon, Nike, Restoration Hardware, Sephora, The Gap, Tiffany & Co., plus many more.

The Cape Breton Partnership’s annual Investor Summit brings together over 200 business, community, and government leaders from across the island to network, celebrate innovation and establish new partnerships, collaborate, and develop solutions for issues facing local businesses.

The Summit will kick off at 10 a.m. and include presentations and panel discussions with a focus on up and coming opportunities around the island.  The evening includes a gala dinner sponsored by the Atlantic Lottery Corporation, where Economic Impact Awards are presented to individuals and organizations who have made significant contributions to the Cape Breton economy through innovation, entrepreneurship, and new investments.
