In presenting the award to Andrea, Elaine Mah, Intel of Canada Ltd. business marketing manager, explained: “Only with innovative thinking could Andrea combine her background in forestry with her desire to protect the environment for future generations. By continuing to believe that one person can make an impact and by continuing to push the envelope on behalf of her clients, Andrea is setting the new standard for innovation.” Andrea was presented with her award – an 18-karat gold broach designed by Tiffany & Co. – at a gala awards dinner in Toronto on Tuesday evening. In accepting the prize she said: “I am so honored by this award and in particular to have won in the innovation category. Innovation is at the heart of everything we do at Remsoft. I feel lucky that we have the freedom to stop and think and to put new ideas into practice. “I also want to acknowledge the phenomenal group we have at Remsoft who are focused and talented and enable the very innovation that I’m being recognized for.” Andrea is the president and co-founder of Fredericton-based Remsoft, which makes the world’s leading software system for sustainable, long-term forest management.

New Brunswick Premier Bernard Lord, who was in Toronto to speak at the Economic Club of Toronto, was invited to offer congratulation to a surprised Ms Feunekes. Taking the podium after Ms Mah, he said: “In New Brunswick, we have long recognized and celebrated Andrea Feunekes as the quintessential entrepreneurial success story, and Remsoft is held up as an example of how a high-tech, export-oriented company can start, grow and flourish from a New Brunswick base. "Now with the national spotlight illuminating her many achievements, the rest of Canada can join with New Brunswickers in showing admiration for this very successful business woman."
