This designation recognizes best-in-class of Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues over $15 million demonstrating strategy, capability and commitment to achieve sustainable growth.
“We are truly honoured to be awarded this prestigious designation,” said CEDA’s President and Chief Executive Officer Kevin Fleury. “This recognition reinforces our ongoing commitment to being the service provider of choice by our people, our clients and our vendors. The collective effort of our people and their commitment to our vision were instrumental in achieving this award. Never being satisfied with the status quo is what drives us to continually develop capabilities to ensure that we are attracting and retaining the best people, executing our work safely and efficiently and focusing on improving processes to better serve our clients. We strive to bring additional value to our clients through the ongoing pursuit of new technologies and by advancing existing technologies.""
Fleury continues: “From CEDA’s incorporation in 1973, the organization has grown to over $400 million in revenues, acquired over 26 companies, employs over 2,000 talented people and delivers over 120 distinct services (24 hours a day, 365 days a year). This is a remarkable accomplishment and a true testament to our ability to build a resilient business that has survived a number of significant economic downturns, taken advantage of opportunities along the way and continues to prosper. I would like to thank our valued employees; we couldn’t have reached this milestone without you. And to our clients and partners who have helped us get to where we are today, thank you for your continued support.”
