Offley was recognized for his vision, innovation, leadership and success in navigating CentriLogic's rapid international growth. Notably, Offley and CentriLogic were credited with offering Canada's first cross-border Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud hosting service, and with winning enterprise clients like Xerox and Yahoo! during the company's early stages.

The CentriLogic team strives to put our customers first, and grow with them. This partnership has resulted in CentriLogic proactively expanding our capabilities for international hybrid hosting solutions and architecting one of the first cloud solutions featuring both Canadian and International availability zones," said Offley. "I am very honoured to share this award alongside the rest of the accomplished entrepreneurs who are working diligently to build innovative businesses in Canada and globally."
