We already knew she was a bold leader.

McRock cofounder is 2021 Big Ideas Bold Leaders Award Winner

Haskayne School of Business at the University of Calgary honoured Whitney Rockley (MBA’97) with the Big Ideas Bold Leaders Award at the 2021 annual alumni awards.

The name of the award says a lot. Big ideas? Yes. Bold leader? Definitely. It’s no surprise they selected McRock’s cofounder for this honour. Look at the selection criteria and it makes even more sense. Nominees must have taken on something big; created something outstanding or made an enormous impact by inspiring change, motivating others or enabling positive change in the community. We know first hand she’s done all of this and more.

Whitney was known by her Haskayne peers as being very studious. She was enthralled with the MBA content she was learning, and it sure paid off. The McRock team and all of our partners can attest to how effectively she has put her education to use. Lucky us!

Whitney believes in the power of surrounding yourself with good people personally and professionally. “It’s about family. About having the support around you and having a sounding board. Surround yourself with people you admire and look up to.”

Fun facts about Whitney: one of her personal hobbies is martial arts and her favourite work-from-home accessory are fuzzy slippers.
Congratulations, Whitney! They could not have selected a more deserving recipient.
