Chad Wasilenkoff Nominated as one of BNN’s Top Newsmakers 2010

Chad Wasilenkoff, CEO of Fortress Paper Ltd., made it onto BNN’s Top Newsmaker of the Year 2010, a list that recognizes game-changing business leaders in Canada.

Wasilenkoff was acknowledged this year for picking up the bankrupt pulp mill in Thurso, Quebec and acquiring Optical Security Assets from the Bank of Canada, a division that makes security threads for paper money. His original $2-million investment in Fortress is worth 80 million today, and his stock is up 300% over the last year.

Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall was chosen as the Top Newsmaker of 2010 for his role in the tabled hostile takeover of Potash Corporation by BHP Billiton.
