Sourov De and Ryan Burgio, Stryve Group’s two managing partners, have each been recognized this year in The Waterloo Region Record’s annual Top 40 Under 40 awards.
This award is presented to the top forty “unheralded leaders” under 40 years of age residing in the Waterloo region that have made outstanding contributions and achievements within the community. Each recipient was honoured at The Top 40 Under 40 reception on February 22, 2012.
Sourov and Ryan founded Stryve Group in 2008, at the ages of 26 and 27 years old respectively. Today Stryve Group is a successful and rapidly growing marketing firm. Over the last 3 years, they’ve built an impressive client list which includes TD Bank and best-selling authors, David Chilton of The Wealthy Barber series, as well as Janet & Greta Podleski of the Looneyspoons Collection. Sourov and Ryan are also leaders in the digital and social media space, as founders of the popular LinkedIn group, Social Media Marketing Canada. They have both been extensively involved in the KW community as faculty members at Conestoga College, mentors for the YMCA Cross-Cultural Program, and as members of several volunteer organizations and boards.
“Sourov and Ryan are two of a kind. They both left excellent, well-paid positions in corporate Canada to pursue the most worthwhile of dreams — to make a difference. They truly want to positively impact society and prove it daily with their passion and energy.” – David Chilton, author of the best-selling book The Wealthy Barber Returns.
