Five local builders earn Best Managed Companies status
Five Calgary new home builders have made the list of Canada’s 2020 Best Managed Companies in the annual poll conducted by Deloitte Private, a division of Deloitte.
Morrison Homes and Trico Homes retained their spot on the Platinum winner’s list reserved for companies that have been named a Best Managed Company for more than seven years in a row.
The Hopewell Group, which includes Hopewell Residential, and Logel Homes/Cardel Lifestyles are on the Gold winner’s list, which is reserved for companies that have been on the list for four, five or six years in a row.
For the first time, Calgary’s Rockwood Custom Homes snagged a spot as a Best Managed company.
Each award winner represents the best-in-class of companies owned and managed by Canadians that demonstrate strategy, capability and commitment to achieving sustainable growth.
This is the 11th time that Alberta-based Morrison has been on the list and its fifth consecutive year holding Platinum status.
“Being recognized once as a best managed company in Canada is a great achievement,” says Dave Gladney, Morrison president and CEO. “But being recognized 11 years in a row is nothing short of remarkable and a credit to our strong customer-first mindset.”
Morrison is currently building in 16 master planned communities in Calgary, Okotoks and Chestermere.
Hopewell was first named a Best Managed Company in 2016.
“We have built our companies on an integrated foundation related to residential real estate; retail, commercial and industrial real estate; and freight logistics, distribution and warehousing,” says Sanders Lee, founding partner and executive chairman of the Hopewell Group of Companies. “And, our focus is on the future, with a scalable, tech-enabled focus on property technology and final-mile delivery services.”
Hopewell Residential is developing and building in southeast Calgary in Copperfield, Hotchkiss and Mahogany and in the northwest in Arbour Lake West.
