Commercial Banking, National Post and Queen's School of Business. The national
award honours Canadian companies demonstrating the highest levels of business
Klick was chosen from hundreds of applicants as part of a rigorous and
independent judging process that looked for the 50 companies in Canada with
the strongest fundamentals across all verticals and regardless of size.

innovation, management practices and core vision.

our track record in setting the standard in terms of rigorous hiring processes
and innovative application of technology to manage our business. Combined with
our values which pivot on the customer experience, the result is clients who
are thrilled to refer us to their colleagues," says Leerom Segal, President
and CEO. "It's very gratifying to have our efforts recognized by such a
prestigious designation as Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies."

excellence at the intersection of marketing and technology," adds Segal. "In
making the 50 Best Managed list, it's a great third party endorsement of what
has made our business successful."

growth: strategy, capability, and commitment, Klick has demonstrated it is a
model of success in all three areas and is duly awarded one of Canada's Best
Managed," explained John Hughes, Partner, Private Company Services group with
