Toronto – For the tenth year in a row, Diamond Schmitt Architects has been recognized among Canada’s Best Managed Companies, an independent appraisal of business practices and sustained growth among Canadian-owned firms. This is the third year the company has achieved Platinum Club status, having maintained the Best Managed designation for seven years or more.
“This track record as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies is a testament to our ability to develop our capacity while maintaining a high standard of design excellence and delivery,” said Donald Schmitt, Principal, Diamond Schmitt Architects.
The prestigious program sponsored by Deloitte and CIBC reviews hundreds of submissions each year from companies seeking to stand out among their competitors. Diamond Schmitt Architects was the first architecture practice to be recognized by Canada’s Best Managed Companies.
“Best Managed companies truly and authentically recognize the significance of their people – and acknowledge that their people help differentiate them from their competitors in the marketplace,” said Lorrie King, National Co-Leader of Canada’s Best Managed Companies program and Partner, Deloitte Private
“The complex act of delivering architectural excellence requires discipline, systems and sensitivity,” Schmitt added. “We apply a principled, collaborative approach to design in order to achieve these objectives.”
Winning firms will be recognized at a Best Managed Symposium in Toronto in April.
