Scout Logistics named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for Third Year Running
Toronto, ON – March 9, 2017,
Scout Logistics Corporation was recently honoured with the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation for the third consecutive year. The 2017 Best Managed program recognizes the best-in-class of Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues over $15 million demonstrating strategy, capability and commitment to achieve sustainable growth.
“It’s much more than just financial performance,” said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “The ingredients to success also include overall business performance and sustained growth. It takes dedication and commitment from the entire organization.”
Established in 1993, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs recognizing Canadian-owned and managed companies for innovative, world-class business practices. Winners are an important engine of economic growth for being adaptable and sustainable in a global market. Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel made up of judges from Deloitte, CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business and MacKay CEO Forums. Best Managed companies share commonalities that include an emphasis on culture and people, innovation, sustained performance and strong financial results.
“We operate on ‘Scout’s honour’,” says Lorne Swartz, founder and president of Scout Logistics. “We stand by our word – we treat our customers, carrier partners and team members fairly, honestly and with integrity. Not only is it the right thing to do but we believe it is also essential to the success of our business. Earning a spot among Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the third consecutive year confirms once again that we are taking the right approach and making smart investments in our people, partners and processes,” says Swartz. “We look forward to continued success in the coming years”.
“CIBC proudly congratulates the 2017 winners of Canada’s Best Managed Companies, who exemplify business excellence and success,” says Jon Hountalas, Executive Vice President, Business and Corporate Banking, CIBC. “This year’s winners reinforce the significant impact that privately owned Canadian companies are making by pursuing innovation and maintaining a sharp focus on their clients.”
2017 winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award will be honoured at the annual Canada’s Best Managed Companies gala in Toronto on April 19, 2017. On the same date, the Best Managed symposium will address leading-edge business issues that are key to the success of today’s business leaders.
