The Deveraux Group: Winner for a Third Straight Year – Canada’s Best Managed Companies
The Deveraux Group of Companies has once again been recognized for overall business performance and sustained growth with the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation. The 2021 Best Managed program award winners are amongst 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.
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. “This year’s Best Managed winners are a shining example of the importance of leadership in the face of adversity,” said Kari Lockhart, 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.”
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. “We are deeply honoured to receive the Best Managed Companies designation for a third straight year,” said Denis Jones, President and CEO, The Deveraux Group of Companies. “Despite unanticipated challenges relative to the COVID-19 pandemic, our team demonstrated a tremendous ability to adapt and execute on our business plans, including expansion into new markets, while importantly ensuring the well-being and safety of our residents, clients and employees.”
