Sean McCormick

Manitobah Mukluks
President & Founder
Sean McCormick is the President and Founder of Manitobah Mukluks, a Profit-500 company and Canada’s fastest-growing footwear brand. Cited in Canadian Business as a highly successful entrepreneur who has “laid the groundwork for a global operation,” Sean has been instrumental in guiding Manitobah from its early roots to its current global success - from startup to $25M+ in annual sales.

Winner of the 2010 Excellence in Aboriginal Business Leadership Award, Sean has led every major enhancement since founding Manitobah, overseeing a global supply chain and a high performance team of over 100 staff covering finance, manufacturing, sourcing, customer service and logistics. In 2011, Sean also spearheaded development of the company’s overseas manufacturing capabilities and secured key growth financing through the Capital for Aboriginal Prosperity and Entrepreneurship Fund, or CAPE. Recently, Sean found an Indigenous community to partner in Manitobah’s growth - Montreal Lake FN.

Equally community-minded, Sean has developed successful community outreach programs, established education bursaries, supported Indigenous organizations and created business-building partnerships with dozens of Indigenous artists and students through the company’s Storyboot Project. He takes pride in following in his mother’s footsteps as a community activist and constantly seeks new ways to share his Métis heritage across the entire Manitobah ecosystem.
