The Valens Company Inc., an innovator manufacturer of cannabis products, announced that Tyler Robson, CEO, Chair and Co-Founder of The Valens Company has been selected as a recipient of Canada’s Top 40 Under 40® for 2021.
Canada’s Top 40 Under 40® is an annual leadership award that recognizes exceptional achievement by 40 outstanding Canadians who are under the age of 40. Founded in 1995 by Caldwell, Top 40 has recognized almost 1,000 outstanding Canadians and is the country’s most coveted award for young business and community leaders. Top 40 alumni now include hundreds of nationally and internationally prominent CEOs, executives, and entrepreneurs in the private, public and social economy sectors.
Robson and his peers were selected from hundreds of nominees by a respected and independent Advisory Board, comprising 30 diverse leaders from across Canada. Four key criteria were assessed to select the recipients: Vision & Innovation, Leadership, Impact & Influence, and Social Responsibility.
“Achieving Top 40 signals a level of dedication and commitment that shows up in Tyler’s leadership style, and is what helps drive and propel our leadership and success of The Valens Company,” said Jeff Fallows, President of The Valens Company. “He is a team player, always ready to lend a helping hand or be a listening ear to someone in need. This approach has not only unified employees, but also enabled Valens to reach all its operational milestones.”
In 2021, Robson led Valens through four major acquisitions, including LYF Technologies, Verse Cannabis, Citizen Stash and Florida-based Green Roads, marking Valens’ expansion into the US. Under his leadership, Robson has made sustainability a core element to Valens’ company culture, developing a sustainable cannabis destruction method specially designed to not only be compliant with Health Canada, but to also be as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible.
Fallows continued, “Tyler is a one-of-a kind, natural-born leader. We are proud to have him as part of the Valens team and congratulate him on this major accomplishment.”
The 2021 Top 40 Recipients were announced on Friday in the National Post. Recipients will be honored at a series of events to take place in the coming months.
