A plethora of engineering firms, from across the country, are among the winners of Deloitte’s 2020 Canada’s Best Managed Companies awards program.

Now in its 27th year, the program recognizes excellence in privately owned organizations with annual revenues of $25 million and higher. An independent process evaluates the contenders’ management skills and practices.

“This year’s best-managed companies are fostering healthier workplaces, closer communities and stronger foundations to help guide successful, collaborative decision-making,” says Kari Lockhart, a Deloitte partner who serves as national co-leader for the program.

“This year’s select group of winners should be proud of their achievements and of this designation,” says Peter E. Brown, the other co-leader and also a Deloitte partner.

  • Associated Engineering (AE), Edmonton.
  • Atlantic Industries, Sackville, N.B.
  • CBCL, Halifax.
  • CCI, Cochrane, Alta.

“Best Managed has given us the opportunity to reflect and challenge ourselves to strive toward being a better business,” adds JLR vice-president (VP) Saverio Parrotta.
