Deloitte Canada has released the winners of the 50 Best Managed Companies for 2020 and SFM has once again been named for its second year in the program. Established in 1993, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is Canada’s leading business awards program, recognizing excellence in private Canadian-owned companies.

SFM provides customized go-to-market solutions to global brands within the audiovisual (AV), live entertainment, and media production industries and maintains a portfolio of 70 brands, holding exclusive Canadian distribution rights for top-tier brands like QSC, Shure, and Pioneer DJ throughout its pro audio, pro visual, CI (custom installation) and MI (music instruments) divisions.

Over the past year, SFM has continued to develop services and solutions tailored to the market and their customers’ needs, remaining loyal to their commitment to people and long-term relationships all while providing a workplace that’s empowering and flexible for its employees.

“Our requalification is a testament to the caring and commitment of all the employees at SFM. This past year was marked by significant operational endeavours and new initiatives that required staff members to go beyond their day-to-day roles. This kind of dedication is what makes SFM a favourite of our customers and what makes us collectively such a great group of people to work with. We’re extremely proud of this designation and to be part of a roster of Best Managed companies that are actively focused on identifying and preparing for new challenges on the horizon,” says Randal Tucker, President & CEO at SFM.

Each year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies undergo a rigorous application process that evaluates four categories within each company’s structure: strategy, capability, commitment, and return on investment. Only those with sustained performance and strong financial results are awarded this prestigious designation.

Winners will receive their official award at the Canada’s Best Managed Companies winners’ Gala in Toronto from March 31 – April 1, 2020.
