HALIFAX, NS – Maritime Travel has been recognized nationally for excellence in business performance for 2017. The Halifax-based travel company has been named a Platinum Club winner of Canada’s Best Managed Companies. The Best Managed award recognizes Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues over $10 million for sustained growth, financial performance, management practices and the efforts of the entire organization.

A Platinum Club winner must maintain Best Managed status for a minimum of six consecutive years. Maritime Travel has been recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Platinum Club for 14 consecutive years. Prior to that, it had been named one of Canada’s Best Managed companies since 1998.

Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs and recognizes Canadian companies that have implemented world-class business practices and created value in innovative ways. Established in 1993, it is sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, National Post, Queen’s School of Business and MacKay CEO Forums. Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel on how they address various business challenges, including new technologies, globalization, brand management, leadership, leveraging and developing core competencies, designing information systems, and hiring the right talent to facilitate growth.

“We owe our continued success in achieving this award to the dedication of our branch teams across the country. Our knowledgeable, caring staff on the front lines, together with state-of-the-art technology and operations, has been instrumental in achieving this designation for so many years,” said Gary Gaudry, President of Maritime Travel.
