2009 winners flourish in adversity
Toronto, ON - February 16, 2010 - JV Driver triumphed over thousands of other applicants to win a 2009 Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies award. This prestigious national award is sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC Commercial Banking, National Post, and Queen's School of Business.
"Over the past 17 years, Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies program has recognized the most innovative and Best Managed Companies in Canada. We are delighted to celebrate the accomplishments of JV Driver," said John Hughes, Partner, Private Company Service group with Deloitte, a national sponsor of the Best Managed program.
JV Driver's selection for this award was propelled by the successful execution of major industrial projects throughout Western Canada and coast-to-coast expansion that was initiated by the active pursuit of partnerships and partner companies. With a multi-disciplined and vertically integrated design, JV Driver is able to service all the clients' needs and offers a full scope of core competencies.
Established in 1993, the Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies is a national awards program, recognizing Canadian companies that have implemented world-class business practices and created value in innovative ways. Applications are reviewed by independent judging panel that evaluates how companies address various business challenges, including new technologies, globalization, brand management, leadership, leveraging and developing core competencies, designing information systems, and hiring the right talent to facilitate growth.
JV Driver was built upon 4 core values, values which continue to guide the company today. These values provide guidance without limiting the company's ability to expand and adapt. These values have led to JV Driver's proven track record and contributed to being named the "Best Safety Performer" by Work Safe Alberta in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008. "People truly are the core of our existence. Many members started working together over 20 years ago and this accomplishment wouldn't be possible without them, we are excited to see everyone's hard work and dedication translate into this award" says Chairman, Bill Elkington.
