Skyline Joins Canada’s Best Managed Companies Platinum Club
Skyline was awarded the highest level of achievement within the Best Managed program.
[Guelph, ON – May 5, 2021]
Skyline Group of Companies is pleased to announce that it has achieved Platinum Club status with the Canada’s Best Managed Companies program by retaining its Best Managed designation for seven consecutive years or more.
First honoured in 2014, Skyline has requalified as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies every year since. It qualified as a Platinum Member within the program for the first time this year.
“We’re proud to have joined the Best Managed Platinum Club following a year of challenges and changes that no business was prepared for,” said Jason Castellan, Co-Founder, and CEO, Skyline Group of Companies.
“We couldn’t have achieved this without the incredible efforts of our staff across Canada. This past year—and every year before it, since the inception of Skyline—our staff have demonstrated exceptional teamwork, innovation, and resilience. This award belongs to them, and we thank them for their dedication and hard work.”
The 2021 Best Managed program award winners are among the best-in-class of Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues over $25 million demonstrating leadership in the areas of strategy, capabilities and innovation, culture and commitment, and financials to achieve sustainable growth.
“To become a Best Managed Platinum Club winner is nothing short of remarkable,” said Kari Lockhart, Partner, Deloitte Private, and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program.
“Their continued adaptability in an era of uncertainty sets the standard for how to overcome new barriers and demonstrate resilience at the highest levels. This year’s Platinum Club winners are the Canadian cornerstone for outstanding business in 2021.”
Now in its 28th year, Canada’s Best Managed Companies remains one of the country’s leading business awards programs recognizing Canadian-owned and managed companies for innovative, world-class business practices. Every year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates the calibre of their management abilities and practices.
Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel comprised of representatives from
program sponsors in addition to special guest judges. 2021 Best Managed companies share commonalities that include (but are not limited to) enabling a remote workforce, making employee health a top priority, acting with an increased sense of purpose and social responsibility, and a significantly heightened focus on cash flow.
“This year’s Best Managed winners are a shining example of the importance of leadership in the face of adversity,” said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte Private, and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program.
“By using their unique purpose as the bedrock of their organizational foundation, they were able to chart a path forward with courage and resilience. In a year unlike any other, these companies should be proud not only of this prestigious designation, but the ever-important role they play in the progress and prosperity of Canada.”
