The company revealed that it has been awarded the title of Best Managed Company by Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies program, an award sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC Commercial Banking, National Post and Queen’s School of Business.

It’s the third year in a row that the company has been awarded with either the number one or number two spot.

“To be accredited for three years as one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies is a remarkable achievement,” says Calvin Younger, senior vice-president, CIBC Commercial Banking. “This award is a tribute to these companies’ strong leadership, talented workforce and unsurpassed corporate values. They are models of success for companies striving to reach the highest standards.”
