This year, Okanagan Edge and the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce have partnered to showcase some of the Okanagan’s most exciting entrepreneurs, through the Top 40 Under 40 program.
Sponsored by BDO, the Top 40 Under 40 recognizes innovative young professionals in our community, and showcases their accomplishments.
Okanagan Edge will feature a new honouree each week, so check back often.
This week we recognize Andrew Brunton, a real estate lawyer at Pushor Mitchell LLP.
Andrew Brunton moved to Kelowna 2008, when he first joined Pushor Mitchell; by 2014 he had become a partner at the firm.
Prior to starting with Pushor Mitchell, Brunton earned a Bachelor of Commerce from Queen’s University, along with a law degree from Osgoode Hall.
According to Paul Mitchell, Brunton is “a leader within our firm and in the community.”
At Pushor Mitchell, Brunton served on the management committee, and is the chair of the solicitors group. He’s the past president of the Downtown Kelowna Association, and served on its board for six years. He is also a past director of the United Way.
Mitchell says Brunton encouraged the firm to take part in the United Way Day of Caring, closing the offices for the afternoon so employees could volunteer in the community.
Brunton is also an entrepreneur. As a partner at Pushor Mitchell, he is part owner of a business with more than 100 employees. He chairs the firm’s business development committee, and has led efforts to expand its geographic reach.
If anyone deserves to be the in the Top 40 Under 40, Mitchell says, it’s Andrew Brunton.
