Uxbridge, Ontario: Vince’s Market has been named as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies, one of 45 companies in Canada to receive this award in 2017.
Canada’s Best Managed Companies is Canada’s leading business awards program, presented by Deloitte and CIBC, recognizing excellence in private Canadian-owned companies. Each year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies undergo a rigorous application process, but only the best are awarded this prestigious designation.
“It was quite an intense application, but with the amount of planning and effort our Team has put into our stores over the last few years, we felt it was time to benchmark our organizational goals with the rest of the country,” stated Giancarlo Trimarchi.
Giancarlo is a Partner in Vince’s Market and, in his role as CFO and Controller of the organization, felt it was the proper time in their company’s development to make the application. Along with Carmen Trimarchi, President and CEO, and Brian Johns, Chief Operating Officer, Vince’s Market has grown from a small roadside fruit and vegetable stand to a small chain of community oriented grocery stores focused on offering a personal and fresh shopping experience.
“We are so incredibly proud of our Management and Supervisory Team as well as every Team Member at Vince’s. Our commitment to Quality, Fresh, and Convenience is delivered at every level by our Team,” Trimarchi continued.
“We are honoured to receive this award. It validates and underscores our growth plans, as well as having new Team members recognize we are a great company to be a part of. Success breeds success, and we are excited for what the rest of this year will bring,” states Partner, Brian Johns.
Vince’s Market is scheduled to open their fourth location in Tottenham, ON this fall, and will be growing their talented pool of staff by an additional 130 team members this calendar year.
