Beedie alumni win big in BIV’s Forty Under 40 list

Dec 13, 2011

Alumni from the Beedie School of Business at SFU have made a big impact on the recently-published Business in Vancouver Forty under 40 list for 2011. According to the British Columbia business publication, the winners represent a wide array of businesses, “but they all have one focus: an unstoppable desire to be the best in their field.”

Beedie graduates who made this year’s prestigious list include Robin Dhir (BBA), Benjamin Sparrow (Management of Technology MBA), Diane Stirling (BBA), and Joshua Zoshi (Management of Technology MBA).

Dhir, President and COO of Twin Brook Developments, has quintupled the firm’s annual project volume in the six years since he joined his father and became president of the family firm. Last year, the company was involved in a 150-unit project in India‚Äôs Punjab region, as well as a highrise residential project outside New Delhi.

Stirling is founder of marketing and design company OnTrack Media and Insider Trading Group. Her two ventures, along with a tourism venture in the Okanagan, now have 35 staff and revenues of over seven figures.

Sparrow and Zoshi, meanwhile, met in SFU’s Management of Technology MBA program – and later went on to found Saltworks. Their venture, focused on water desalination technology, has been described by the Economist Magazine as “ingenious”.
