Long View hits ‘gold standard’ with fourth straight year among Canada’s Best Managed Companies
March 10, 2015
CALGARY, Alberta (March 10, 2015) — After years of success with Canada’s pre-eminent business awards program, Long View has struck gold.
Long View, one of North America’s most powerful providers of Hybrid IT solutions and services, is thrilled to announce that it is now a Gold Standard member of the annual Canada’s Best Managed Companies index. This honor is bestowed upon companies that retain their Canada’s Best Managed Companies status for four consecutive years, and Long View was named among that prestigious group.
Established in 1993, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is the country’s leading business awards program, recognizing excellence in Canadian owned and managed companies. Long View first made the grade in this national competition, sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, National Post, Queen’s School of Business and MacKay CEO Forums, in 2011.
“Earning a place among Canada’s Best Managed Companies for four straight years is a very rare distinction, and an achievement that makes us very proud,” says Gord Mawhinney, Long View’s Chief Executive Officer.
“Keeping a spot on this national index is becoming more challenging every year. This competition is constantly raising the bar, in terms of demands and expectations,” adds Mawhinney. “This award is something all of our employees and partners can take great pride in, because it’s their innovation, inspiration, and dedication to customer service that has allowed us to make the grade again.”
Every year, hundreds of entrepreneurial-spirited companies compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates the caliber of their management abilities and practices.
The Canada’s Best Managed Companies index recognizes overall business performances and sustained growth, and considers factors such as long-term strategy, core competencies, and corporate social responsibility (CSR). In short, the Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation symbolizes Canadian corporate success — a focus on core vision, creation of stakeholder value, and excellence in the global economy.
The winners for 2014 will be honored on March 31 during the Canada’s Best Managed Companies symposium and gala in Toronto.
