Farrow Named One of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for 13th Consecutive Year
Windsor, ON – Farrow is incredibly proud to announce that we have been awarded Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation for the 13th consecutive year – What an honour! Along with this notable recognition, Farrow has also achieved, for the seventh time, Platinum Club status, a membership that is exclusive to Canada’s leading organizations.
“We are absolutely thrilled to receive this designation, for the 13th year in a row. This acknowledgement exemplifies the phenomenal work of our dedicated employees over the past year which allowed us to drive innovative solutions in a very broken supply chain world,” said Farrow CEO, Grant Robinson. “Going forward, we will continue to adapt to an ever changing global landscape with the promise of peace of mind delivered, working together as One Farrow. The entire Farrow family is grateful to be presented with this distinction once again and we look forward to sharing our further growth in 2023.”
“It has become increasingly important for businesses to foster collaborative workplaces where employees are empowered to make valuable contributions to their organizations,” said Lorrie King, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “This year’s Best Managed winners embraced a people-first mentality, enabling employees to cultivate important capabilities and integrating diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives into their core strategy. By prioritizing employee wellbeing and championing professional development, these companies have been able to harness an engaged talent pool to explore new ventures and set the course for continuous improvement and growth.”
“The pandemic has changed the way businesses operate and these winners have responded by transforming and pivoting their companies so that they are leading the way forward for the future,” said Dino Medves, Senior Vice President and Head, CIBC Commercial Banking.
