SNC Lavalin, PCL placed in top 25 corporations
Calgary based EnCana Corporation placed third in this year’s list of Canada’s top 25 most respected Canadian corporations as ranked by Canadian CEOs, according to a KPMG survey. In addition, former EnCana President, Gwyn Morgan, emerged as Canada’s most respected leader, with 14 per cent of CEOs personally putting forward his name as the CEO they most admire and respect.
“In today’s business environment, corporate reputation has never mattered more,” said John Wright, Senior Vice President of Ipsos Reid, who has conducted the study since its inception in 1994. “The performance of EnCana <0x2026> along with the other companies <0x2026> in this year’s survey, is a tribute to their leadership and example among their CEO peers.”
Of the eight survey categories against which companies are measured, the two that appeared most frequently among those who made the Top 25 list this year were Corporate Social Responsibility and Corporate Governance.
PCL Construction Group Inc. of Edmonton and Montreal-based construction firm SNC Lavalin were also among the top companies named in this year’s survey.
Conducted between October and November 2005, the survey involved interviews with 250 of the leading CEOs in Canada, either by telephone or on-line.
