Toronto, ON – March 7, 2019,
Scout Logistics Corporation is excited to announce that the company has been recognized as a Gold Standard Re-qualified winner (Year 5) of the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation. The 2019 Best Managed program recognizes the best-in-class of Canadian-owned and managed companies, demonstrating superior capability and commitment to achieve sustainable growth.
Now in its 26th year, 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. Every year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates the caliber of their management abilities and practices.
“This year’s Best Managed winners are a testament to the success found when businesses invest in talent, innovate intentionally, and think long-term,” said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “These companies should be proud of this achievement, and their responsibility in acting as role models for other Canadian businesses.”
“We operate on ‘Scout’s honour’,” says Lorne Swartz, founder and president of Scout Logistics. “We stand by our word – we treat our customers, carrier partners and team members fairly, honestly and with integrity. Not only is it the right thing to do but we believe it is also essential to the success of our business. Earning a spot among Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the fifth consecutive year confirms once again that we are taking the right approach and making smart investments in our people, partners, technology and processes,” says Swartz. “We look forward to continued success in the coming years”.
“CIBC proudly congratulates the 2019 winners of Canada’s Best Managed Companies, who exemplify business excellence and success,” says Dino Medves, Senior Vice President and Head, CIBC Commercial Banking. “This year’s winners reinforce the significant impact that privately owned Canadian companies are making by pursuing innovation and maintaining a sharp focus on their clients.”
