Courtney Pringle-Carver, one of Canada’s Top 40 Under 40®

Earlier this year, Atlantic Lottery’s Vice President of External Affairs, Courtney Pringle-Carver, was named a recipient of Canada’s Top 40 Under 40®, the country’s most coveted award for young business leaders.

This past week, Pringle-Carver gathered with all 40 recipients for a series of events and the Awards Night Gala in Toronto. Organized by Founding Partner Caldwell and Presenting Partner MNP, the events showcased the diversity of talent and provided a forum for recipients to learn from one another.

“Critical to achieving any kind of success is focusing on what we can be, not what we should be,” Pringle-Carver said, when asked what has contributed to her success. “Leadership means seeing the possibilities for others, and providing them with opportunities, in the way that others have provided opportunities for us.”

Pringle-Carver leads Atlantic Lottery’s Public Affairs, Communications and Corporate Brand efforts, all while maintaining a deep dedication to community service and life-long learning. She has served on numerous charitable boards, chaired fundraising galas for the Canadian Cancer Society and the New Brunswick Adoption Foundation and is a past member of the Order of New Brunswick Advisory Council. In addition to these accomplishments, Pringle-Carver has undertaken executive education programs with the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Harvard Law School and is in the process of completing her Master of Public Administration at Dalhousie University. She is a previous recipient of the Canada 150 award and a YWCA Woman of Distinction award.

“We are all exceptionally proud of Courtney and her accomplishments,” said Brent Scrimshaw, Atlantic Lottery President and CEO. “It is leaders like her who help to build a stronger, better Atlantic Canada for all of us.”

As a proud New Brunswicker and mother of one, Pringle-Carver feels this award is also meaningful at a regional level, illustrating what other Atlantic Canadians can achieve right here at home with hard work and perseverance.

“We have important stories to share as Atlantic Canadians,” Pringle-Carver said. “Not only is our region home to legacy industries tied closely to our cultural identity, it houses a vibrant innovation ecosystem and a determined workforce.

“To be afforded the opportunity to represent our region on the national stage has been a remarkable honour, and one I’m confident will bestowed on many more Atlantic Canadians in coming years.”
