It has been a very exciting few days since Canadian Business formally announced that Avana made the 2020 Growth List with five-year revenue growth of 9888% and is the top-ranking Saskatchewan-based company on the list of 500 companies!
“The companies on the 2020 Growth List are really exceptional. Their stories are a masterclass in how to survive when the economy throws a curveball. Despite turbulence, the 2020 Growth List companies showed resilience, spirit and, most importantly, empathy and strong leadership,” says Susan Grimbly, Growth List Editor. “As we celebrate over 30 years of the Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies program, it’s encouraging to see that the heart of Canada’s entrepreneurial community beats strong, even in tough times.”
“We are honoured to be recognized as one of Canada’s fastest-growing companies and are proud to represent the top ten as a female-led company,” says Jennifer Denouden, President and CEO of Avana. “We are dedicated to continuing to break down barriers in the Canadian real estate industry and I could not be more excited for our next five years of growth and social impact.”
Avana develops and operates premium commercial, residential, and multi-unit builds in Regina and Edmonton with $192 million in assets under management. In 2018, the company invested in a social responsibility mandate to create and provide affordable housing units in Regina that support women and children displaced by domestic abuse.
