Paladin Security is thrilled to announce that we have achieved Platinum status as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies. Paladin was first recognized as a Best Managed Company in 2013, and has since been awarded Gold Standard, and now Platinum Club Member status.
Platinum status is only attained after seven years of recognition as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies. Paladin proudly joins the ranks of a very small, select group of companies across Canada who have accomplished this feat. The 2019 Best Managed program award winners are amongst the best-in-class of Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues exceeding $15 million. As leaders in their field, winners have demonstrated strategy, capability, and commitment to achieve sustainable growth.
Paladin Security is the only security firm in Canada to have been recognized as a Best Managed Company. We attribute this achievement to our laser-like focus on customer service and a deeply ingrained corporate culture that empowers every person at Paladin to succeed.
Paladin’s CEO, Ashley Cooper, commented;
I am truly honoured that Paladin has achieved Platinum status in the Best Managed program. The investment we make in our people is the key driving force behind this milestone achievement and to our continued success each year. Paladin’s diverse team demonstrates a commitment to our values from coast to coast and that is what makes us one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies.

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.
"Best Managed Platinum winners have exceptional insights and knowledge into business management practices. They are an inspiration and really take their game to a new level” said Peter Brown, partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies Program.
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.
