Certn Is Deloitte’s 2nd Fastest-Growing Technology Company
VICTORIA, BC, November 16th, 2022 — Today Certn announced it was recognized as part of the 2022 Deloitte Technology Fast 50TM awards program for its rapid revenue growth, entrepreneurial spirit, and bold innovation. Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the program recognizes Canada’s 50 fastest-growing technology companies based on the highest revenue-growth percentage over the past four years. Certn ranks 2nd with a 14,533% percent in revenue growth from 2018 to 2022.
Certn’s CEO, Andrew McLeod, credits his team’s global product leadership as the reason why Certn is excelling at improving every part of the background screening process and for the company’s 424% percent revenue growth in the past two years. McLeod said, “Having a comprehensive global product that meets the needs of the way people work—remote work, global teams, high volume hiring—and that our clients love is non-negotiable. This recognition is proof of this. We love that our clients love us.”
“It’s inspiring how this year’s exceptional cohort of Technology Fast 50 winners have delivered outstanding revenue growth even in the face of prevailing uncertainties in the economy and marketplace,” commented Anders McKenzie, partner and national leader for the Technology Fast 50 program at Deloitte Canada. “Fueled by exemplary innovation, creativity, resilience, adaptability, along with superior business leadership, these companies are paving the way as catalysts in their respective sectors and delivering growth and value to the Canadian economy both at home and beyond.”
Deloitte’s Technology Fast 50 program winners consist of public and private companies in the technology sector that are transforming the industry. The program runs alongside the broader Deloitte North American Technology Fast 500TM, with winners automatically eligible for this elite ranking.
