Victoria, BC, November 8, 2023 — Certn received recognition as part of the 2023 Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ awards program for its rapid revenue growth, entrepreneurial spirit, and bold innovation.
Celebrating its 26th 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 10th with a 2045% in revenue growth from 2019 to 2022.
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 500™, with winners automatically eligible for this elite ranking.
“We’re proud to announce our second consecutive year being recognized on the Technology Fast 50,” says Certn’s CEO Andrew McLeod. McLeod credits Certn’s top-rated usability and global products and services as some of the reasons behind the company’s 2045% revenue growth. “It’s exciting when you have the world’s easiest background checks,” added McLeod. Since 2019, Certn has run more than 11 million checks for some of the world’s biggest brands.
“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.”
