Deloitte, the accounting and consulting firm, recently announced the winners in the competition for the top privately owned Canadian companies with revenues over $15 million.
“Every year the bar set by this elite roster of Best Managed companies is raised higher,” said Peter E. Brown, national co-leader of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies program and a partner with Deloitte Private.
Steve Dustin, President of Laurentide Controls, stated that the company is proud to be ranked among the best in the country.
“This award recognizes Laurentide’s ability to develop and implement innovative business strategies, our constant investment in our team to ensure their success and, most importantly, our ability to maintain an intimate knowledge of our clients, our market and the growing needs of our industries,” he said.
“We demonstrated that we can provide customers with solutions that in turn enable them to distinguish themselves and achieve their own goals. We are very proud of this honour,” Dustin said.
The Gold standard is presented to companies who have been named to the Best Managed list four, five or six years in a row.
Applicants for the award are evaluated by an independent national judging panel on overall business performance, including leadership, strategy, core competencies, cross-functional collaboration throughout the organization, and talent.
While Canada’s Best Managed Companies continue to excel and find success in 2019, a leading trait among winners is a sharp focus on the future. By actively preparing for tomorrow, Best Managed companies are demonstrating resilience ahead of new challenges.
“This year’s Best Managed winners know what it takes to succeed in the future. By investing in innovation and embracing a people-centric approach, these companies are outpacing their competition,” said Lorrie King, national co-leader of the program. “In thinking long term, these companies are already ahead of the curve and are set to be better prepared and successful in the years to come.”
