Andy McCreath (BA '99)
After working for the NHL's head office in New York and as a player's agent, McCreath started tinePublic Inc. in 2005 with his long-time friend Christian Darbyshire. The pair wanted to produce events for young professionals after they observed a lot of existing events were priced beyond what most young people could afford.
According to McCreath, over 200,000 people across Canada have attended their events that featured high-profile speakers such as former US Presidents Bill Clinton, George Bush Sr. and George W. Bush, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Donald Trump, Lance Armstrong, and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
McCreath's activities also include charitable work for organizations such as the Canadian Cancer Society, the Royal University Hospital Foundation and KidSport.
