The Skyline Group of Companies was named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies – Requalified Winners in 2015 for excellence in business performance. Sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, National Post, Queen’s School of Business and MacKay CEO Forums, the Best Managed award recognizes Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues over $10 million for sustained growth, financial performance, management practices and the efforts of the entire organization.
Based in Guelph, ON, Skyline is one of Canada’s fastest-growing real estate investment management companies. It is currently managing over $2.4 billion in real estate assets, with over 290 properties and 7 million square feet of commercial space across Canada. Skyline boasts a unique business model that allows it to be a full-service real estate entity, offering acquisitions, property management and investment services under one roof. In just 16 years, it has grown to a team more than 600-strong whose clients include the 2,000+ investors who are invested in Skyline’s three private REIT portfolios, and the 25,000+ residents and tenants in Skyline’s residential and commercial buildings.
Established in 1993, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs that recognize Canadian companies that have implemented world-class business practices and created value in innovative ways. Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel on how they address various business challenges, including new technologies, globalization, brand management, leadership, leveraging and developing core competencies, designing information systems, and hiring the right talent to facilitate growth.
“Best Managed companies understand the challenges that face private businesses and are worthy examples that companies of all size and scale can learn from,” said Mike Runia, National Co-Leader of Canada’s Best Managed Companies Program and Ontario Managing Partner, Deloitte. “[These are] exceptionally successful private companies that are willing and eager to share insights and help Canadian business owners succeed.”
Skyline will be honoured at the annual Canada’s Best Managed Companies gala in Toronto on April 12th, 2016.
