Toronto, ON- March 25, 2019: Adastra is proud to be recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the fourteenth consecutive year. We take our place among best-in-class enterprises with a commitment to investing in technology, talent and innovation.
“This year’s Best Managed winners know what it takes to succeed in the future. By investing in innovation and embracing a people-centric approach, these companies are outpacing their competition,” said Lorrie King, National Co-Leader of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies program and Partner, Deloitte Private. “In thinking long term, these companies are already ahead of the curve and are set to be better prepared and successful in the years to come.”
Over the past year, we have adapted our strategy to better serve the growing “Digital” priorities among c-level executives. With the acquisitions of Proboston, AdastraOne, and Blindspot.ai, the final components necessary to support all aspects of an organization’s digital journey were added to Adastra, making us the leading partner for AI and Data-driven transformation.
“We’ve travelled from a point where analytics was a niche and often undervalued field, to the present, where Big Data, AI, Cloud, and Digital are top of mind for business executives, across all industries.” says Darren Edery, CEO of Adastra Corporation. “We’ve invested heavily in our skills and solutions, which emphasize digital transformation and remain future-looking to best serve our customers and the growth of their organizations.
“Our continued recognition as a ‘Platinum Member’ of Best Managed Companies indicates that through all these changes, Adastra continues to make the right move in the market,” Edery added, “As always, we are humbled and grateful of this recognition and look forward to celebrating with other winners.”
