Walbridge Recognized as a US Best Managed CompanyPosted Apr 13, 2021
DETROIT, Mich. (April 13, 2021) — Walbridge is proud to announce it has been selected as a 2021 US Best Managed Company. Sponsored by Deloitte Private and The Wall Street Journal, the program recognizes outstanding U.S. private companies and the achievements of their management teams.
The 2021 designees are U.S. private companies that have demonstrated excellence in strategic planning and execution, a commitment to their people and fostering a dynamic, resilient culture, as well as strong financials, all while facing the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite major challenges and immense pressure, they continued to lead with purpose and the vision to make significant contributions to their industries, communities, workforces and the economy.
“The Walbridge team is appreciative of this honor as a US Best Managed Company,” CEO Mike Haller said. “It speaks volumes about the driven people and culture that’s within Walbridge. Even after the twists and turns of the last 12 months, our team members have remained composed and taken a ‘get the job done' attitude.”
Applicants are evaluated and selected by a panel of external judges focused on assessing hallmarks of excellence in four key areas: strategy, ability to execute, corporate culture and financial performance. They join a global ecosystem of honorees from more than 30 countries recognized by the Best Managed Companies program.
