Mandy Farmer is Pres­i­dent and CEO of the 30-year-old Ac­cent Inns and three-year-old retro-chic Ho­tel Zed. Mandy rein­vented and re­struc­tured the way Ac­cent Inns did busi­ness, driv­ing sig­nif­i­cant profit and cost sav­ings as a re­sult. She is the epit­ome of her brand’s motto, “Dif­fer­ent in a Good Way,” and rides her bike to work ev­ery day, rain or shine, in high heels, bright 1980’s tights and funky dresses. When you meet her, you might think she is Ho­tel Zed per­son­i­fied. A few of her re­cent ac­com­plish­ments in­clude her cur­rent #25 rank­ing in Profit Magazine’s Top 100 Cana­dian Women En­trepreneurs, re­cently be­ing named na­tional Hote­lier of the Year and her ap­point­ment as an Hon­orary Cap­tain of the Navy af­fil­i­ated with the Cana­dian Forces Base Esquimalt.
