PROFIT magazine & Canadian Business unveil 27th annual PROFIT 500 list
TORONTO (September 17, 2015) — Argyle Public Relationships today celebrates its inclusion in the PROFIT 500, the definitive ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies by Canadian Business and PROFIT magazine. Published in the October issue of Canadian Business and at PROFITguide.com, the PROFIT 500 ranks Canadian businesses by their five-year revenue growth.
Argyle made the 2015 PROFIT 500 list with five-year revenue growth of 120 per cent.
“The PROFIT 500 represent the highest tier of entrepreneurialism in Canada,” says James Cowan, Editor-in-chief of PROFIT and Canadian Business. “They should be lauded for the positive economic contributions they’ve made to their communities—and the entire country. They are examples of what can be accomplished with innovation, discipline and determination.”
“At Argyle, being entrepreneurial means understanding clients’ businesses, bringing them fresh ideas and a higher level of service, and helping them measure the impact of public relationships on their reputations and brands,” says Argyle CEO Daniel Tisch. “It’s exciting to see this philosophy reflected in our business growth – and to earn this recognition from these two premier Canadian business brands.”
The PROFIT 500 ranking caps a year in which Argyle earned a long list of local, national and global awards, including winning Canadian Social Marketing Campaign of the Year from the Canadian Public Relations Society and being a finalist for global Mid-Sized Agency of the Year honours from the International Association of Business Communicators. Argyle is also the only Canadian firm to earn multiple awards from the Global Alliance for Public Relations and Communication Management.
