Fengate maintains Platinum Club status as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies


Fengate became a Requalified Platinum Club member as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies in 2015 for excellence in business performance.

The Best Managed program recognizes Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues over $10 million demonstrating strategy, capability and commitment to achieve sustainable growth.

“Best Managed Platinum winners are amongst the elite Canadian-owned and managed companies. They have a proven track record of outstanding leadership, business performance and sustained growth,” said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program.

Fengate is a real asset investment firm that specializes in customized investment funds with a strategic focus on infrastructure, real estate and private equity. The firm has achieved Best Managed status since 2007 by being strategically focused on attracting, investing in and retaining the talent needed to support their objectives while developing an engaging workplace culture for their employees. “Our team of experienced professionals has a track-record of successfully sourcing, structuring and managing market-leading investment opportunities for our clients and partners,” said Lou Serafini Jr., President and CEO of Fengate.

Established in 1993, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs recognizing Canadian-owned and managed companies that have implemented world-class business practices and created value in innovative ways. Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel on overall business performance, including leadership, strategy, core competencies, cross-functional collaboration throughout organization, and talent.

While Fengate is proud of their development, they are still able to ground themselves in the roots of their business. “We strive to ensure that, as a team, we continue to instill the original values that our company was founded on in our rapidly changing and competitive business environment. It is through the dedication of our employees, loyal clients and partners that Fengate has earned the reputation of trusted partner,” said Lou Serafini Jr., President and CEO.

2015 winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award, along with Requalified, Gold Standard, Gold Requalified winners and Platinum Club members will be honoured at the annual Canada’s Best Managed Companies gala in Toronto on April 12, 2016. 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.

The Best Managed program is sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, National Post, Smith School of Business and MacKay CEO Forums.
