Two dealership groups were among the 2024 honorees in the Canada’s Best Managed Companies awards — and not for the first time.

British Columbia-based OpenRoad Auto Group was named for the 12th consecutive year, placing it firmly in the award’s Platinum Club for businesses earning the designation for seven or more years in a row.

OpenRoad employs more than 1,700 associates at its 36 locations in B.C., Ontario and Washington state, and five collision centers.

Founder and CEO Christian Chia said the recognition “highlights the exceptional talent and dedication of our entire OpenRoad Group team,” and said his company “continues to stand shoulder to shoulder with many of our nation’s top businesses. This accolade inspires us to strive for even greater excellence in our commitment to redefining the automotive experience and beyond.”

HGregoire was selected as a Best Managed Company, its fourth consecutive honor. That lifts the company, which operates 31 locations in Quebec and the U.S., into the award’s Gold Standard for businesses maintaining their status four to six years.

“We are very proud of our achievements over the past year, both individually and collectively,” HGreg president John Hairabedian said, “and will continue to work diligently at continuously improving our customers’ shopping experience in an effort to stand out in our industry and among local businesses.”

The award adds to HGregoire’s list of honors, which includes the AutoTrader Best Price Dealer award and the CADA Laureat Award.

The Canada’s Best Managed Companies program, presented by Deloitte, has recognized excellence in private Canadian-owned companies with revenues of $50 million or greater for more than 30 years. Companies are evaluated on their leadership in the areas of strategy, culture and commitment, capabilities and innovation, governance and financial performance.

“Best Managed is a prestigious award that recognizes the significant and ongoing contributions within Canada’s business landscape,” said Deloitte’s Lorrie King, co-leader of the program. “Companies such as OpenRoad that attain this high standard of excellence demonstrate consistent adaptability, versatility and strategic acuity. Year after year, they thrive in a competitive, rapidly changing market and should be proud of their growth.”
