A dream come true: Rachel opens the TSX Wednesday, November 25th.

An historic moment for Hillberg & Berk took place on Wednesday, November 25, 2015 at the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) as the EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women class of 2015 opened the market. Among this elite class of women is Rachel Mielke, winner, and member of this class. With Mielke was COO Mary Weimer and VP of Sales and Brand Excellence Dina Holoien. This momentous occasion marks a dream come true for Mielke, who has envisioned this for years.

It was one of those ‘pinch me’ moments. Opening the TSX was definitely a life goal.



Colleen McMorrow, Partner and Canadian Leader of Strategic Growth Markets, Ernst & Young joined Rob Peterman, Director, Global Business Development, Toronto Stock Exchange & TSX Venture Exchange to open the market. This celebration paid tribute to the winners of the 2015 EY Entrepreneur Of The Year awards and the EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women class of 2015. National Canadian judges for the program, alumni, and the EY leadership team were all present.


The EY Entrepreneur of the Year Awards encourage entrepreneurial activity and celebrate those who are building and leading successful, growing, and dynamic companies – honouring distinguished women in their fields. This year Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange have become a national sponsor of the 2015 EY Entrepreneur of the Year Awards. Congratulations to you, Rachel, and your entire team!
