Associated Engineering has once again been named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for its excellence in business performance and management. This latest recognition marks the seventh consecutive year that the company has received this prestigious award, sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, National Post, Queen’s School of Business and MacKay CEO Forums. Associated Engineering now joins a select group of Canadian-owned and managed companies as Platinum Club members of the program.
“I want to congratulate Associated Engineering on becoming a Platinum Club member,” says Peter Brown, National Co-Leader of Canada’s Best Managed Companies Program and Senior Practice Partner, Deloitte. “This designation exemplifies consistency, commitment, and the ability to be flexible in a changing marketplace. These qualities are what make Associated Engineering such a great business success story and one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies.”
Since Associated Engineering was first recognized in 2008 as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies, the company has grown and solidified its place as one of Canada’s premier consulting firms. During this period, the firm has almost doubled its revenue and staff numbers have increased by 40%. Services have expanded to include environmental science, urban planning, landscape architecture, energy, asset management, and facilities engineering. Geographically, the company has added seven offices across Canada and acquired two companies, all the while staunchly retaining its corporate culture, while operating in an economy still recovering from the 2008 recession.
Kerry Rudd, President & CEO, states, “We are honoured to receive this prestigious recognition and join the elite group of Platinum Club members of the Best Managed Companies. This award is a testament to the dedication and commitment of our staff, and the vision of our leadership team. Looking ahead, we will continue to advance our position as a leader in our market and as an employer of choice.”
The annual Canada’s Best Managed Companies gala will be held in Toronto on March 31, 2015.
