By Mark E. Rose (Toronto)
On behalf of all Principals, we are proud to announce that Avison Young – for the fifth consecutive year – has been named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies.
After competing against a wide range of companies nationwide to win the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014, we are proud to announce that we requalified as a Gold Standard winner in 2015 for excellence in business performance.
We are thrilled to have the opportunity to share the news of this prestigious award with our clients and partners.
This award symbolizes the success of our Principal-led, collaborative culture, growth strategy, and unique client-service model. Winning this award five years in a row gives us third-party confirmation that our values, accomplishments and culture are making a difference in the commercial real estate industry, and that we have established a solid, sustainable organization that is built to last.
Established in 1993, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs that recognizes Canadian-owned and managed companies that have implemented world-class business practices and created value in innovative ways. Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel on overall business performance, including leadership, strategy, core competencies, cross-functional collaboration throughout the organization, and talent.
Over the past seven years, Avison Young has grown from 11 to 75 offices and from 300 to more than 2,200 real estate professionals in Canada, the U.S., Mexico and Europe. And we want to thank our clients, partners and employees who have taken us here, and whom we count on every day to reach our lofty goals.
