The Kriska Transportation Group (KTG) was recognized for overall business performance and sustained growth with the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation. The 2019 Best Managed program award winners are amongst the best-in-class of Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues over $15 million demonstrating strategy, capability and commitment to achieve sustainable growth.
Now in its 26th year, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is 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 caliber of their management abilities and practices.
The Kriska Transportation Group continues to grow in an ever-changing market. KTG operating companies are some of the safest carriers in Canada and are industry leader in employing technologies that keep their drivers safe, operations efficient and customers satisfied. The group is dedicated to sustainability by operating a young, fuel efficient fleet of trucks. KTG continues to grow and diversify through acquisition with the addition of a freight logistics brokerage this past year.
“It’s much more than just financial performance,” said Lorrie King, Partner, Deloitte and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “The ingredients to success also include overall business performance and sustained growth. It takes dedication and commitment from the entire organization.”
Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel comprised of representatives from program sponsors in addition to special guest judges. 2019 Best Managed companies share commonalities that include a clear strategy and vision, investment in capability and commitment to talent.
“It’s with great pleasure that we accept this award for a 19th year.” said KTG, CFO, Pierre Carrier “This award reminds us every day that we need to keep innovating and growing our business. This, for our employees and our community. We wish to thank all our employees for the effort that they make to keep us one of the 50 Best Managed Companies in Canada.”
“Best Managed winners should be extremely proud of their accomplishments,” said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “The marketplace is changing rapidly and this incredible class of companies’ commitment and entrepreneurial leadership help drive business success that is critical for the health of our economy.”
