The Shaw Group Limited was named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies, Platinum Club, in 2014 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.
“This year’s winners demonstrate the significant impact that Canadian private companies make from coast-to-coast – and beyond – by pursuing innovation and investing in meeting the needs of their clients,” said Jon Hountalas, Executive Vice-President, Business Banking, CIBC.
The Shaw Group Limited is focused on growing its market share in the Atlantic Canadian construction industry and building capacity to support that growth. With the benefit of a strong balance sheet and a disciplined approach to planning and developing in-depth customer knowledge, the Company is pursuing strategic acquisitions, investing in land and other local assets and hiring talented people in key business development and corporate leadership positions.
Established in 1993, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs that recognizes 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.
“We are delighted to, once again, be recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies. Having achieved this award for the fourteenth consecutive year, our company is extremely proud to be part of the Platinum Club made up of Canada’s leading organizations that have been Best Managed companies for six consecutive years or more,” says President and CEO Dean Robertson. “The recognition and credibility of this award help position us favourably when introducing The Shaw Group to potential partners or customers. It is a tribute to the commitment and hard work of every employee of our company.”
