Back to 2011

(Edmonton, Alberta) – Servus Credit Union maintained its status among a select group of Canadian businesses as a member of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Platinum Club for the second year in a row.

“We believe that there are three vital building blocks to sustainable growth: strategy, capability, and commitment. Servus Credit Union has demonstrated it is a model of success in all three areas and is duly recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed,” explained John Hughes, Partner, Private Company Services group with Deloitte, a national sponsor of the Best Managed program.

“We are honoured to continue to be recognized as a Platinum Club member of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies program,” said Garth Warner, President and Chief Executive Officer of Servus Credit Union. “The award validates the direction set by our Board of Directors, the strategic guidance of our management team and the commitment of all our employees to fulfilling our vision and mission.”

Established in 1993, Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies is a national awards program,

created value in innovative ways. Applications are reviewed by an independent judging panel
that evaluates how companies 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.

“Companies that have earned Platinum Club status in Canada’s Best Managed Companies program have shown a strong sense of vision and demonstrated a continued commitment to their corporate values,” said Jon Hountalas, Executive Vice-President, Business Banking, CIBC. “Platinum Club winners are examples of excellence in Canadian business.”
