Arconas Named One of Canada’s Best Managed Companies


Arconas re-qualified in 2018 to maintain its status as a Best Managed Gold Standard company.

Arconas was recognized for overall business performance and sustained growth with the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation. The 2018 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.

Arconas also maintained Gold Standard status for excellence in business performance for the second year in a row, competing against some of the nation’s top firms in all business sectors.

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.

“Being amongst the best in class requires more than financial performance,” said Lorrie King, Partner, Deloitte and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “Achieving sustained growth and strong overall business performance is the result of the combined efforts and commitment of the entire organization.”

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.

“We are very proud to once again receive this distinction for the sixth consecutive year and also maintain Gold Standard Status for the second year in a row,” says Pablo Reich, Arconas’ Executive Vice President. “This award was achieved due to the hard work of our dedicated team and their commitment to working with our clients to raise the value of their public spaces.”

“CIBC proudly congratulates the 2018 winners of Canada’s Best Managed Companies, who exemplify business excellence and success,” says Dino Medves, Senior Vice President and Head, CIBC Commercial Banking. “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.”

2018 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 11, 2018.  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.

The Best Managed program is sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business, TMX Group and MacKay CEO Forums.
