The head of Red Deer’s municipal government has cracked a business magazine’s list of the most influential people in Alberta.

Mayor Morris Flewwelling has been named to Alberta Venture’s 50 Most Influential People. Compiled annually by editors at the magazine, the list names those people who are believed to have had the greatest impact “on shaping opinions, ideas and actions in the province over the past year.”

“They’re teachers and politicians, bankers and entrepreneurs,” said Michael Ganley, editor of Alberta Venture. “The one thing they all have in common is that each has had an uncommon influence on Alberta and beyond this year.”

Alberta Venture has also produced a Next 10 list, which features Alberta’s rising talents. Included there this year is Matthew Wildcat, of Ermineskin First Nation at Hobbema.

The 50 Most Influential People and Next 10 lists will be published in Alberta Venture’s July issue. They can also be viewed online at albertaventure.com.
