This year, the Deloitte selection panel based its decision on three criteria essential to success: talent, innovation and investment in new technologies. The best managed companies of 2018 have distinguished themselves through their leadership, vision and commitment to developing the best talent.
In today's business environment, successful companies are relying more than ever on their human and technological resources to support their growth. As a result, they adopt a long-term vision and are therefore better equipped to meet the challenges of the future.
"Their success is the result of a deliberate approach to creating top-notch teams and an unwavering commitment to developing talent," states Dino Medves, Senior Vice-President and Head, Commercial Banking at CIBC, the program's sponsor.
Pomerleau is one of those committed companies:
"We will never grow too big to forget this family spirit that characterizes us," says Francis Pomerleau, Chief Executive - Talent, Culture & Leadership. "Investing in the development of our talented people is the most important thing we can do."
Ian Kirouac, Executive Vice President - Strategic Initiatives, promotes ongoing innovation within the company:
"Equipping ourselves with the tools that optimize our processes allows us to contribute to our growth, but also to maximize our resources' time. Innovation is a structured approach that is in keeping with our strategic vision."
