convenience industry. She bought Kane's
Distributing from her parents when they
retired in 1999. She has maintained a tightknit
community at her company despite
challenges during the COVID crisis. With the
first lockdown in 2020, Canadian businesses
were forced to keep their doors shut unless essential, but
Kane's Distributing was deemed essential because it sells
PPE products. Kane's innovative, entrepreneurial mind has
helped keep the company thriving, as she was the impetus
for them to diversify and move into other industries such as
micro markets. She also decided to partner with Nayax and
shift to more cashless payment solutions.

agency established in 1955. BBI provides

Ashley
Marcellus
trade shows and business to the next level by literally
" thinking outside the box. " Marcellus was able to pivot to
help BBI clients maximize their experience successfully.
She introduced the BBI Early Access Box, offering a sneak
peek at manufacturer's items and deals in virtual trade
shows. It included product samples, deal sheets and links

is inspiring how Marcellus tackled a problem and created a
unique way to advance and thrive during unprecedented
