In February 2009, The Lakeside Group of Companies was acknowledged as a Platinum Club member in Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies program. A Platinum Club member is a company that has maintained Best Managed status for a minimum of six consecutive years. The program sponsors are Deloitte, CIBC Commercial Banking, National Post, and Queen’s School of Business.
The Best Managed designation symbolizes Canadian corporate success: companies focused on their core vision, creating stakeholder value and excelling in the global economy. The program has continued to raise the profile of Canadian-owned businesses that have:
- outperformed their competitors
- created numerous jobs
- achieved sustainable growth
- excelled both at home and abroad
