Avison Young wins Canada’s Best Managed Companies award for sixth consecutive year
By Mark E. Rose (Toronto)
After competing against some of the nation’s top firms in all business sectors, we are thrilled to announce that Avison Young has been named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the sixth consecutive year, and attained Gold Standard status for excellence in business performance for the third straight year.
This award is a testament to the success of our Principal-led ownership model and the dedication of our entire talented workforce. Ultimately, this award shows that our success is not only about high sales and transaction volumes, but also about treating people fairly, respecting the importance of their properties and goals, and giving back to the community.
This award also demonstrates that our company’s values, collaborative culture, client-centric approach, and dedication to sustainability are resonating not only in our industry but all business sectors. Although we have achieved widespread growth, we are still using a model that speaks to clients and top talent, and we are differentiating ourselves from all other commercial real estate service providers. We are grateful for this recognition and salute all new and repeat winners.
Deloitte/CIBC have officially announced the winners in MacLean’s magazine and Canadian Business www.canadianbusiness.com/bestmanaged
