BRIAN SCUDAMORE is an entrepreneur recognized for his passion, vision, and faith in people.
Starting with just one truck and a great idea, Brian Scudamore grew 1-800-GOT-JUNK? into one of North America’s most successful companies (it’s now a household brand and a major player in three countries). He’s poised to do the same with ventures WOW 1 DAY PAINTING, You Move Me, and the most recent addition to his home service-based empire, Shack Shine.
As the founder and CEO of O2E Brands, Scudamore and his companies have received widespread recognition in the media and business community, with features on CNN, ABC Nightline, Undercover Boss, and Oprah. Scudamore has shared his impressive story in Fortune Magazine, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal, to name a few. A recognized thought leader, who recently coined a modern, relevant term for franchising—entrypreneurship—Scudamore is a frequent contributor to publications including Forbes, PROFIT, and The Globe and Mail’s Leadership Lab. This year, he was also the recipient of The Aird & Berlis LLP Award for Canadian HR Champion, CEO of the Year: an award that “recognizes the CEO who has driven successful HR strategies from the top by putting people first and championing innovative HR values.”
