Trotman Auto Group named a Gold Standard winner.

Trotman Auto Group has been recognized for overall business performance and sustained growth  with the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation for the 4th year in a row. The 2021 Best Managed program  award winners are amongst the best-in-class of Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues over $25 million. They  have demonstrated leadership in the areas of strategy, capabilities, innovation, culture, commitment and financials to achieve

sustainable growth. Now in its 28th year, Canada’s Best Managed Companies remains one of the country’s leading business  awards programs recognizing Canadian-owned and managed companies for innovative, world-class business practices. Every  year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates  the calibre of their management abilities and practices.

“The past year has posed numerous challenges for Canadian businesses and has touched each and every one in some form  or another—including this year’s Best Managed winners,” said David Keyworth, Deloitte Partner, Audit and Insurance.“  They should be extremely proud of this designation and use it as a catalyst to continue the work they do each and every day.  Their unwavering commitment to their people, and their adaptability amid a year of turmoil, has led them to this achievement  and it mustn’t go unnoticed.”

Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel comprised of representatives from program sponsors in addition to  special guest judges. 2021 Best Managed companies share commonalities that include (but are not limited to) enabling a remote  workforce, making employee health a top priority, acting with an increased sense of purpose and social responsibility, and a significantly heightened focus on cash flow.

“CIBC is especially proud to celebrate and recognize the winners of Canada’s Best Managed Companies in what has been a very  challenging year”, said Dino Medves, Senior Vice President and Head, CIBC Commercial Banking. “These companies had to make  tough decisions, adapt quickly to a new environment and most importantly, continue to innovate and invest for the future.”

The Best Managed program is sponsored by Deloitte Private, CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business, and TMX Group.

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 $25 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).  Program sponsors are Deloitte Private, CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business, and TMX Group.
