Klohn Crippen Berger (KCB) has worked behind the scenes on growth and development in Western Canada since the early 1950s. This year, the company celebrates their 60th anniversary and their third year as one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies.
“The qualification process for Canada’s 50 Best offers a great framework for any organization,” says president Bryan Watts. “We, naturally, look for ways to maintain quality standards and strengthen our operations, but as a 50 Best company we are open to a different level of accountability and we have access to resources to help us develop and maintain best practices. Retaining our status as one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies reinforces our level of commitment to our clients, the community and our employees.”
Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies continues to be the mark of excellence for Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues over $10 million. Every year since the launch of the program in 1993, hundreds of companies have competed for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates their management skills and practices.
