Celebrating the Milestone: A Look Back at Mikhail Evgrafov's 2016 SIMA CEO of the Year Award and Monster Plowing Company's Meteoric Rise
Mikhail started Monster Plowing Company at an impressively young age. Against all odds, he envisioned and actualized a snow removal service that transcended mere functionality. Monster wasn't designed to just move snow; it was engineered to offer peace of mind. Since its inception in 2008, Monster Plowing Company has evolved from a small local startup to the most accredited, trustworthy, and reliable brand-name snow contractor in Toronto.

Every year, the international Snow and Ice Management Association, in collaboration with Snow Business magazine, invites nominations for its CEO of the Year award. The accolade serves to spotlight a distinguished executive who has exhibited exceptional qualities in innovation, financial stewardship, and professionalism in the snow removal industry. After a rigorous evaluation process, it was Mikhail Evgrafov who stood out from the rest, clinching the highly coveted title.
