Ottawa, ON—[May 5, 2021]—M.P. Lundy Construction was recognized for overall business performance and sustained growth with the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation. The 2021 Best Managed program award winners are amongst the best-in-class of Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues over $25 million demonstrating leadership in the areas of strategy, capabilities and innovation, culture and commitment, and financials to achieve sustainable growth. 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.
Three key highlights captured the attention of the judges and sealed the win for M.P. Lundy:
- A guiding corporate philosophy that prioritizes a healthy company culture above all else. This discipline has allowed the company to grow exponentially while maintaining close teamwork across all operations. In turn, the positive and close-knit environment has led to successful project outcomes and positive experiences for Lundy clients.
- Commitment from the top to drive clarity of purpose throughout the organization. CEO Sean Lundy leads with a clear vision and purpose that are inextricably linked to company strategy. His goal is to ensure every communication, every hire, every decision – big or small, at each level of the company – advances the strategy.
- Tangible proof of innovation brought to every project. Lundy has adopted unique high and low-tech solutions to enhance upfront planning, communication, and client advocacy – three areas that distinguish M.P. Lundy in a highly competitive industry.
Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel comprised of representatives from program sponsors in addition to special guest judges. 2021 Best Managed companies share commonalities that include enabling a remote workforce, making employee health a top priority, acting with an increased sense of purpose and social responsibility, and a significantly heightened focus on cash flow.
“We are thrilled to be part of this prestigious group,” said Sean Lundy, CEO, M.P. Lundy. “It takes an exemplary combination of talent to achieve such a distinction, and I am so proud of the Lundy team for getting us to this milestone – particularly during this year of unprecedented change. It was especially gratifying to see the judges recognize our handling of the COVID-19 crisis. Over the past year, we have heightened our efforts and gone the distance for the health and safety of our clients, employees, partners, and the community at large. Every member of the Lundy team has played a key role in earning us this award.”
“This year’s Best Managed winners are a shining example of the importance of leadership in the face of adversity,” said Kari Lockhart, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “By using their unique purpose as the bedrock of their organizational foundation, they were able to chart a path forward with courage and resilience. In a year unlike any other, these companies should be proud not only of this prestigious designation, but the ever-important role they play in the progress and prosperity of Canada.”
