HH Angus has been recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for 2019—an honour we credit to our clients and staff who inspire us to continually strive for leadership excellence, client service and innovation. The prestigious program—now in its 26th year—recognizes the overall business performance and growth of best-in-class, Canadian-owned companies with revenue of $15 million or more.
“We’re thrilled to be a 2019 winner of the Best Managed Companies program,” said Harry Angus, President, HH Angus. “We’ve been in business for 100 years and fortunate to work with clients who have trusted us with their important projects – some for over 70 years. Our clients and our dedicated staff continually inspire us to improve client service and innovate.”
We understand that our people are essential to our success. We’re investing in their skills and career development, as well as investing in advanced technology, an innovation platform, and workplace collaboration tools allowing them to deliver tailored solutions to our clients’ engineering, design and business challenges.
This year, a panel of judges evaluated over 700 companies in four key areas: strategy, capability, commitment, and financials. As this was HH Angus’ first time applying for the program, we are especially honoured to have been selected.
HH Angus is no stranger to firsts, however. “By remaining independent with a long-standing, focused and nimble team, we’ve been able to consistently recognize trends in the market place and think proactively on our clients’ behalf,” says Tom Halpenny, Vice President, HH Angus. “We’ve worked with clients who entrusted us to deliver some of Canada’s industry-leading advances and they continue to give our team the opportunity to do great work.”
Those advances include landmark buildings, such as the first skyscraper in Canada (the Toronto Dominion Tower), the world’s first stadium with a motorized retractable roof (SkyDome/Rogers Centre), the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), BMO Field Expansion and Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM) – the largest P3 healthcare project in North America. We also recently received the 2018 Schreyer Award – Canada’s top consulting engineering award recognizing innovation and technical excellence.
“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.”
About Canada’s Best Managed Companies
Canada’s Best Managed Companies continues to be the mark of excellence for Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues over $15 million. Every year since the launch of the program in 1993, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies have competed for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates their management skills and practices. The awards are granted on four levels: 1) Canada’s Best Managed Companies new winner (one of the new winners selected each year); 2) Canada’s Best Managed Companies winner (award recipients that have re-applied and successfully retained their Best Managed designation for two additional years, subject to annual operational and financial review); 3) Gold Standard winner (after three consecutive years of maintaining their Best Managed status, these winners have demonstrated their commitment to the program and successfully retained their award for 4-6 consecutive years); 4) Platinum Club member (winners that have maintained their Best Managed status for seven years or more).
