Tarpon Achieves Platinum Club Status – Canada’s Best Managed Companies Program


A strong emphasis on people, sustained growth and solid leadership are just a few reasons why Tarpon Energy Services Ltd. has earned Platinum Club status in Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. Membership in this club is reserved for companies who have maintained a standard of excellence for more than six consecutive years. Tarpon was first recognized as one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies in 2006 and is proud to become a Platinum Club member for the first time.

“We are extremely honoured to receive this recognition after seven consecutive years of maintaining our Best Managed designation,” said John Henry, President & CEO, Tarpon Energy Services Ltd. “A sincere thank you to our employees and clients for helping us earn this prestigious distinction for outstanding business achievement. This award is a reflection of the passion, skill and dedication of the Tarpon team.”

Canada’s Best Managed Companies continues to be the mark of excellence for Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues over $10 million. Every year since the launch of the program in 1993, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies have competed for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates their management skills and practices. This well-known national award is sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, National Post, Queen’s School of Business and MacKay CEO forums.

“I want to congratulate Tarpon on becoming a Platinum Club member. This designation exemplifies consistency, commitment and the ability to be flexible in a changing marketplace,” said John Hughes, Partner, Private Company Services, Deloitte. “These qualities are what make Tarpon such a great business success story and one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies.”

2012 winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award, along with the Gold Standard winners, Requalified and Platinum Club members will be honoured at the annual Best Managed gala in Toronto on April 16, 2013. 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.
