LGM NAMED ONE OF CANADA'S BEST MANAGED COMPANIES

Vancouver, BC (March 8, 2018) – LGM Financial Services was recognized for overall business performance and sustained growth with the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation. The 2018 Best Managed program award winners are amongst the best-in-class of Canadian owned and managed companies, demonstrating strategy, capability and commitment to achieve sustainable growth.

The winners’ list was published on the Best Managed Companies website this morning, and will be featured in Maclean’s magazine, as well as the Canadian Business digital hub.

Now in its 25th 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 calibre of their management abilities and practices.

We’re thrilled to be recognized for our excellence in innovation, business performance and as a leader in our industry,” says founder and CEO of LGM, Adam Hill. “Our fearless leadership team has fostered a distinct culture committed to being a strong, innovative force in our industry.”

“Being amongst the best in class requires more than financial performance,” said Lorrie King, Partner, Deloitte and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies Program. “Achieving sustained growth and strong overall business performance is the result of the combined efforts and commitment of the entire organization.”

Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel comprised of representatives from program sponsors in addition to special guest judges. 2018 Best Managed companies share commonalities that include a clear strategy and vision, investment in capability and commitment to talent.

2018 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 11, 2018. 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.

The Best Managed program is sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business, TMX Group and MacKay CEO Forums.
