Toronto, Ontario (September 13, 2018) Canadian Business and Maclean’s today ranked The Marquee Group on the 30th annual Growth 500, the definitive ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies. Produced by Canada’s premier business and current affairs media brands, the Growth 500 ranks Canadian businesses on five-year revenue growth. Growth 500 winners are profiled in a special print issue of Canadian Business published with Maclean’s magazine and online at CanadianBusiness.com and Growth500.ca.
The Marquee Group made the 2018 Growth 500 list with five-year revenue growth of 117%.
“The companies on the 2018 Growth 500 are truly remarkable. Demonstrating foresight, innovation and smart management, their stories serve as a primer for how to build a successful entrepreneurial business today,” says Deborah Aarts, Growth 500 program manager. “As we celebrate 30 years of the Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies program, it’s encouraging to see that entrepreneurship is healthier than ever in this country.”
“The Marquee Group is honoured to be named to the Growth 500 list for a second time,” says Principal and Founder, Ian Schnoor. The Marquee Group was named to the list in 2016 when it was formerly the PROFIT 500. “Our tremendous growth can be attributed to our fantastic team of 18 people and the clients who have been with us since the beginning.”
This year, the PROFIT 500 ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies program was rebranded into the Growth 500 ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies to more accurately reflect the achievements of the companies that make the list each year. You can read more about the change here.
The Marquee Group is the leading provider of financial modeling training, consulting and accreditation in Canada. Its training programs and modeling expertise are widely recognized throughout the financial community.
“The past two years have been pivotal for our company. Our training and consulting practices have shown tremendous growth and we also launched The Financial Modeling Institute (FMI) in 2017 to bring our accreditation program to the global stage.” The creation of the FMI is a reflection of the growing need among candidates and employers for a globally-recognized financial modeling certification program. “The demand for financial modeling solutions has no bounds. Regardless of industry, every company uses spreadsheets and requires robust financials models, which is our specialty,” says Schnoor.
Since 2002, The Marquee Group has conducted the annual training programs at numerous banks, pension funds and business schools, training thousands of professionals and students in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Australia and China.
