Vancouver, BC, March 5, 2020—Copperleaf®, a global leader in decision analytics solutions, has been selected as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies by Deloitte Canada for the second consecutive year. Copperleaf was recognized for its sustained growth and overall business strategy, which is focused on continuous product innovation, strategic partnerships, accelerated global expansion, and the evolution of its co-created culture.
Now in its 27th 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. 2020 Best Managed companies share commonalities that include a clear and concise strategy, capability to invest in R&D, tools and proprietary equipment, and a strong emphasis on corporate social responsibility.
“We are incredibly proud to be recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the second year in a row. Our unwavering commitment to our business strategy and culture has helped us sustain our competitive advantage on the world stage,” said Copperleaf CEO Judi Hess. “As we continue to scale in order to meet the growing demand for our solutions, our management practices have also evolved to enable and support our team.”
“This year’s Best Managed winners are a testament to the success found when businesses are deliberate about seizing the opportunity to do better; they invest in game-changing technology, commit to their corporate purpose and social responsibility, and solidify their place on the world stage,” said Kari Lockhart, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “Canada’s Best Managed Companies celebrate a community of the strongest private businesses that shape our country and fuel Canada’s competitiveness, creating sustainable economic growth in an evolving global market.”
“CIBC congratulates 2020’s Canada’s Best Managed Companies, who are not only at the forefront of their industries, but among privately held companies across Canada,” said Dino Medves, Senior Vice President and Head, CIBC Commercial Banking. “The success of these companies is built on continued investment in top talent, an ongoing focus on innovation and a well-defined path for the future.”
2020 winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award will be honoured at the annual Canada’s Best Managed Companies gala in Toronto on April 1, 2020. On the same date, the Best Managed symposium will address leading-edge business issues that are key to the success of today’s business leaders.
