Best Managed Companies in Canada - Platinum

OTTAWA – The offices of J.L. Richards & Associates Limited (JLR) are abuzz with excitement today following the news that the firm has been named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the seventh consecutive year. By retaining their status for this long, JLR has now earned the prestigious honour of Platinum Club status through the program.

The Best Managed program is the premier awards competition for privately owned Canadian companies. The program involves a rigorous application process and is designed to recognize entrepreneurial Canadian companies that are leaders in business excellence. Platinum Club status is the highest level of achievement in the Best Managed program.

“We are incredibly proud of this achievement, and to be recognized once again alongside so many of Canada’s great business leaders,” says CEO and President of JLR, Guy Cormier.

JLR Vice President Saverio Parrotta echoes Cormier’s sentiment, and credits the Best Managed program for playing a key role in shaping how JLR identifies opportunities for business excellence and innovation.

“Best Managed has given us the opportunity to reflect and put challenges on ourselves to strive toward being a better business,” Parrotta says. “Being one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies speaks to the fact that we are doing our part as a business to be exceptional.”

As JLR enters its first year as a Platinum Club Best Managed Company, the firm looks forward to breaking ground on its innovative new Ottawa office building and many more exciting milestones.
