OTTAWA – J.L. Richards & Associates Limited has been recognized for overall business performance and sustained growth by requalifying for Platinum Club status with the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation.

The 2022 Best Managed program award winners are amongst the best in class of Canadian owned and managed companies who demonstrate leadership in the areas of strategy, capabilities and innovation, culture and commitment, and financials to achieve sustainable growth. Now in its 29th year, Canada’s Best Managed Companies remains one of the country’s leading business awards programs recognizing Canadian‑owned and managed companies for innovative and 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 are incredibly proud of this achievement, and to be recognized once again alongside so many of Canada’s great business leaders is a testament to our exceptional team and steadfast business model,” says Saverio Parrotta, JLR CEO and President. “JLR is continuously reshaping how we do business and identifying opportunities for business excellence and innovation. Being one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies is a solid confirmation that we are doing our part as a business to be outstanding.”

Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel comprised of representatives from program sponsors in addition to special guest judges. Companies will be honoured at in-person galas across the country. The Best Managed virtual symposium will address leading-edge business issues that are key to the success of today’s business leaders.

“The 2022 Best Managed winners exemplify innovation, adaptability, and resilience in the face of uncertainty,” says Derrick Dempster, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “Over the past year, these forward-forging companies have pivoted to successfully respond to challenges and capitalize on new opportunities, leveraging industry-leading competencies to maximize their investments and drive sustainable growth.”
