Changemakers is an editorial award program produced by Report on Business magazine at The Globe and Mail. Its intent is to showcase the emerging leaders transforming business today.
Rob is one of 50 winners of the award.
Rob leads the operations and financial performance of both Skyline Energy, a clean energy asset manager, and Skyline Clean Energy Fund, an equity growth fund comprised of solar and biogas assets totalling 37.75 MW/DC1 in size. Both are part of Skyline Group of Companies (Skyline), a $6.4 billion2 asset acquisitions, management, development, and investment entity.
“With Rob’s leadership, Skyline Clean Energy Fund and its asset manager, Skyline Energy, continue to invest in—and support the further development of—clean energy technology and solutions that can help Canada reach its carbon emissions reduction targets,” said Jason Castellan, Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer, Skyline Group of Companies.
“Rob understands that the benefits of the Fund’s growth and success go beyond providing an attractive investment opportunity for investors. This is about positioning Skyline as leaders and influencers in the Canadian clean energy industry and helping accelerate the expansion of that industry.”
The Globe and Mail solicited nominations for the Changemakers award in the fall of 2021. Winners were selected by The Globe and Mail’s award-winning editorial team for their ideas, accomplishments, and impact, as determined by their nominations, subsequent interviews, and reference checks.
“The world is facing more challenges than ever before – climate change, racial discrimination, income inequality, not to mention the pandemic,” says Dawn Calleja, editor of Report on Business magazine.
“So it’s heartening to meet this year’s crop of 50 Changemakers, who are searching for solutions to many of these problems and offering some inspiration.”
Editorial coverage of all 2022 Changemakers can be found in the March 2022 issue of Report on Business magazine, distributed with The Globe and Mail on Saturday, February 26th, and online now at https://tgam.ca/changemakers.
