Vista Projects wins Canada's Best Managed Companies program for 2013

CALGARY, March 25, 2014 /CNW/ - Vista Projects Limited (Vista), a privately-owned, Calgary-based oil and gas engineering firm, was recognized today as a 2013 winner of Canada's Best Managed Companies program. Deloitte and CIBC sponsor this prestigious national award, which hundreds of applicants compete for each year.

"We believe that there are three vital building blocks to sustainable growth: strategy, capability, and commitment; Vista Projects has demonstrated it is a model of success in all three areas and is duly recognized as one of Canada's Best Managed," said John Hughes, National Leader of Canada's Best Managed Companies and Managing Partner, Growth Enterprises, Deloitte.

Founded in 1985 on a simple premise - to treat people fairly and deliver quality engineering - Vista's people, clients and business have grown together over the years. The success of this people-first approach is illustrated by Vista's long-standing client partnerships, recognition as a Best Small and Medium Employer in Canada for five years running and designation as a Best Managed Company.

"This is a tremendous accomplishment for everyone at Vista," said Founder Alex Campbell. "I started Vista on the belief that people deserve to be treated fairly and clients deserve high quality engineering. Our commitment to excellence shows in everything we do as a company. I am extremely proud of what we have achieved."

The program will honour Vista at the annual Best Managed Companies gala in Toronto on April 1.
