Calgary-based engineering firm wins Canada’s Best Managed Companies program for sixth year
March 7, 2019 (Calgary, AB) – Vista Projects Limited (Vista), a privately-owned, Calgary-based facility engineering, procurement and project management firm, was recognized today with the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation for overall business performance and strong leadership.
“Businesses today need to be thinking long-term to succeed, and this year’s Best Managed winners are truly going the distance in investing in the future,” said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “These companies can celebrate their accomplishments today, and should be excited for tomorrow.”
“It is an honour for Vista to requalify as a Gold Standard winner in 2019,” said Chief Executive Officer Bashar Hussien. “This is our sixth consecutive successful application to the Best Managed program, and under these market conditions, I think that says a lot about our team’s adaptability.”
Vista’s recent winning application highlighted the company’s strategic investments in technology and its people, two areas that will contribute to further business diversification and growth.
“Canada’s energy industry – our industry – faces critical external challenges,” said Hussien. “As a company, we have remained focused on what we can control, which is the quality of our engineering products and the evolution of our work processes. Innovation is the key to consistently delivering projects on schedule and within budget.”
2019 winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award will be honoured at the annual Canada’s Best Managed Companies gala in Toronto on April 17, 2019. On the same date, the Best Managed symposium will address leading-edge business issues that are key to the success of today’s business leaders.
The Best Managed program is sponsored by Deloitte Private, CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business, and TMX Group.
