March 10, 2017, Toronto, Ont – Jefo was recently received designation as one of Canada’s best managed companies, the second year in a row.
“I am very proud that Jefo is being requalified as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies,” said Jean Fontaine, president and founder of Jefo, adding that 2017 marks the company’s 35th anniversary. “Since our modest beginnings, we have been able to carve out an enviable place in a competitive environment. Our originality has attracted the attention of many customers.”
The 2017 Best Managed program recognizes the best-in-class of Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues over $15 million demonstrating strategy, capability and commitment to achieve sustainable growth.
“Best managed companies deserve recognition for their entrepreneurial approach to excelling in an uncertain economic climate,” said Peter Brown, a partner at Deloitte and co-leader of Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “They truly bring out the best in Canadian business leadership.”
Established in 1993, 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. Winners are an important engine of economic growth for being adaptable and sustainable in a global market. Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel made up of judges from Deloitte, CIBC, Canadian Business, the Smith School of Business, and MacKay CEO Forums. Best managed companies share commonalities that include an emphasis on culture and people, innovation, sustained performance and strong financial results.
This year’s winners will be honoured at the annual Canada’s Best Managed Companies gala in Toronto on April 19, 2017.
