Aplin Requalifies for Canada’s Best Managed Companies Platinum Award

David Aplin Group requalifies as a Platinum Member of the Best Managed Program.
Now in its 25th year, 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. Every year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates the calibre of their management abilities and practices.
David Aplin Group is honoured to be recognized for overall business performance and sustained growth with the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation.
The 2019 Best Managed program award winners are amongst the best-in-class of Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues over $15 million demonstrating strategy, capability and commitment to achieve sustainable growth. This year’s winners were focused on intentional innovation, investment in future technology, talent, and global orientation.
“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.”


About the Program

There are many benefits to participating in the Best Managed awards program, including coaching from Deloitte and CIBC professionals, and detailed self-analysis of your business focused on strategic and operational issues. The program highlights business management practices, and helps companies identify areas for improvement. 
“Companies that earn Platinum Club status, exemplify exceptional vision and leadership and a sustained commitment to growth and innovation,” said Dino Medves, Senior Vice President and Head, CIBC Commercial Banking. “CIBC is proud to recognize these and all of the 2018 Canada’s Best Managed Companies as leaders in their industries.”
The Best Managed program is sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business, TMX Group and MacKay CEO Forums. Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel comprised of representatives from program sponsors in addition to special guest judges. 2018 Best Managed companies share commonalities that include a clear strategy and vision, investment in capability and commitment to talent.

Why the Best Managed program is Important

In our experience, the Best Managed designation is truly valued by employees and, it’s a great way to attract a high calibre of new talent. For private Canadian businesses, the Best Managed designation is associated with quality, trust and reliability of your brand and your company. Gaining entrance into the program is extremely competitive, and we’re truly honoured to be part of such a great group of Canadian businesses.
Requalifying for Platinum status pushes us to continue to invest in talent, technology and future success by growing and evolving our business. At David Aplin Group, we congratulate all the finalists in this year’s Best Managed Program.
