Canadian Electrical Wholesaler


Mar 27, 2018

Best Managed CompaniesA number of companies in Canada’s electrical industry continue to earn Canada’s Best Managed Companies awards. Presented by Deloitte, the program recognizes best-in-class Canadian, privately-owned and managed companies with annual revenues over $15 million.

As companies compete more aggressively for market share, this year’s winners demonstrate sustained and exceptional business performance, achieved through their clear strategy and vision, investment in capability and unwavering commitment to talent, says Deloitte.

Each year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies undergo a rigorous application process, but only the best are awarded with this prestigious designation.

“This year's winners combine bold and inclusive leadership with a keen ability to leverage a leading trend or competitive edge to meet the clients’ needs,” says Dino Medves, Senior Vice-President and Head, Commercial Banking at CIBC, a long-standing sponsor of the program. “Their success demonstrates what it takes to make a difference both inside and outside their companies.”

The 2018 winners are characterized by being clear on purpose and vision, building toward a foundation of delivery excellence, and committed to their workforce. Over the last 25 years, a combination of “play to win” attributes have contributed to the success, resilience and longevity of Best Managed winners. This year, more than 200 companies reached Platinum Club status, having maintained their Best Managed designation for seven years or more.

Here’s a list of winners from Canada’s electrical industry.

Long term versus short term fascinates me. Making the call for one over the other can determine the success (or failure) of companies today. 

Using Bill Gates’ long-term Internet effect example, means that business decisions about the Internet will not necessarily show short-term gain, but will show “profound” gain in the long term.
