Okanagan Edge and Kelowna Chamber of Commerce are partnering to showcase some of the region’s most exciting entrepreneurs through the “Top 40 Over 40” program.

Sponsored by BDO, the “Top 40 Over 40” recognizes high-achieving professionals in our community and showcases their accomplishments. This marks the ninth year the chamber has conducted a “Top 40” showcase. Honourees will be featured throughout the year on Okanagan Edge.


Denise Martell is a financial professional and entrepreneur who has dedicated over 11 years to helping families achieve their goals and dreams.

She found her passion for helping others while advocating for her son, realizing a strong financial foundation, including access to the Registered Disability Savings Plan, would enable him to lead a full, inclusive life in the community. Her personal experiences, post-secondary teaching and certified education assistant backgrounds have been invaluable in helping with her success.

Martell is committed to promoting safe and secure futures for people with disabilities through financial education, estate planning and implementation of the RDSP program. She is currently a marketing director with World Financial Group.

Her family moved to Kelowna 44 years ago, she enjoyed many outdoor activities including organized sports such as softball and skiing, and then was fortunate to attend and graduate from Kelowna Secondary School before moving on to her post-secondary studies.

When she is not working you will find Martell enjoying time with her family and dogs, walking the trails, and exploring the many comforts of the Okanagan.
