Montreal, Canada, May 5, 2021  Averna, a leading global Test & Quality Solutions provider, announced today it has been selected by Deloitte Canada for this distinguished award.

This year’s winners were able to succeed because they weren’t afraid to fail.”

Annually, hundreds of Canadian-owned and managed companies undergo a rigorous application process reviewed by Deloitte, the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC) and a judging panel. In turn, they base their selection on overall business performance and sustained growth across four categories: strategy, capability, commitment and return on investment (ROI).

“It is truly an honor to accept this award on behalf of our team,” said Francois Rainville, President & CEO of Averna. “Despite the challenges 2020 brought to the table, our teams around the world worked relentlessly to service our customers and deliver the highest quality for them. These everyday actions rest on 4 pillars representing Averna’s core values: teamwork and commitment, innovation and knowledge, performance and leadership and customer satisfaction. We used these pillars as a compass to navigate the troubled waters of the pandemic. I am thrilled to see everyone’s efforts acknowledged in this way.”
