Giftcraft wins 2014 Gold Standard Award in Canada’s Best Managed Companies programme

The international leader in design, development and distribution of innovative lifestyle, giftware and fashion apparel products, Giftcraft was originally named a Best Managed Company in 2011 and re-qualified for the programme in 2012 and 2013.

“This year’s winners demonstrate the significant impact that Canadian private companies make from coast-to-coast and beyond, by pursuing innovation and investing in meeting the needs of their clients,” said Jon Hountalas, the Executive Vice-President, Business Banking, CIBC.

Giftcraft has earned its reputation as an industry leader by staying at the forefront of product innovation and providing their vast network of global customers the Right Product, at the Right Time and at the Right Price.

The organisation’s unique business model and state-of-the-art infrastructure allows Giftcraft to accommodate the varying and often complex needs of their divergent customer base. The significant investments in technologies and best-in-class talent, as well as fostering a supportive inclusive culture demonstrates their commitment to business excellence and serves as the organization’s foundation for success.

Established in 1993, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs that recognize Canadian companies that have implemented world-class business practices and created value in innovative ways. 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.

“I speak for everyone in the Giftcraft Family when I say we are honoured and humbled to again be recognised as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies and for being recognized as a Gold Standard Winner for 2014. Maintaining a high level of success does not happen without the commitment, loyalty and desire to be the best from everyone in the organisation. I would like to personally express my gratitude for their collective contributions, as well as thank and recognise my Senior Management Team for their commitment in encouraging, nurturing and fostering our shared vision for business excellence,” said Trevor Cohen, CEO, Giftcraft.
