Callisto Integration Named Gold Standard Winner as One of Canada's Best Managed Companies

Callisto Integration has been recognized for overall business performance and sustained growth with the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation, becoming a Gold Standard winner in 2018. Callisto has been a Canada’s Best Managed Companies winner since 2015, and this latest achievement represents the next step in their pursuit of excellence.  The 2018 Best Managed program award winners are amongst the best-in-class of Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues over $15 million demonstrating strategy, capability and commitment to achieve sustainable growth.

Now in its 25th year, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs recognizing Canadian-owned and managed companies for innovative, world-class business practices. Every year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates the calibre of their management abilities and practices.

Callisto has made major advancements in how information and control systems for manufacturing operations are designed and implemented, improving cost-effectiveness and agility, both for Callisto and for its manufacturing customers.  These changes have fundamentally altered the way Callisto delivers solutions, resulting in significant growth for Callisto and in improved capabilities and reduced cost-of-ownership for their customers.

“Being amongst the best in class requires more than financial performance,” said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “Achieving sustained growth and strong overall business performance is the result of the combined efforts and commitment of the entire organization.” Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel comprised of representatives from program sponsors in addition to special guest judges. 2018 Best Managed companies share commonalities that include a clear strategy and vision, investment in capability and commitment to talent.

“We are thrilled to have achieved Gold Standard status.  We have seen a lot of on-going external and internal success with our strategies, and see achieving this milestone as further confirmation we are doing the right things,” said Michael Grasley, VP Technology & Marketing for Callisto.  “A Canada’s Best Managed designation represents an assurance to our customers, both here in Canada and in foreign markets, that Callisto is the right partner for their system integration needs.”

“CIBC proudly congratulates the 2018 winners of Canada’s Best Managed Companies, who exemplify business excellence and success,” says Dino Medves, Senior Vice President and Head, CIBC Commercial Banking. “This year’s winners reinforce the significant impact that privately owned Canadian companies are making by pursuing innovation and maintaining a sharp focus on their clients.”

2018 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 11, 2018. 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, CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business, TMX Group and MacKay CEO Forums.
