Stratford Managers’ Colleen Kelley, Strategy and Operations, was featured alongside 2019 CFO of the year, Jacqueline Gauthier, SVP Coporate Development at Calian in an Ottawa Business Journal article “Stratford Managers & Calian Group: A winning team since 2010“.
“The value that Stratford provides to us is never really tied to one big thing,” said Gauthier, who in 2018 became Calian’s Senior VP of Corporate Development after 17 years as CFO. “It’s always in the subtleties, the timing of what we do and how we choose to do it. Providing that sounding board and a continuum of support that ensures we have considered every angle and every pertinent detail before we decide to go.”
For a decade, Stratford has been at Calian’s side supporting their growth and scale objectives.
“We always work to provide value, and value can be measured in many different ways,” Kelley said. “Helping the client achieve their desired objectives – whether that is a profitable growth agenda, valuation or customer challenges – and understanding how the company ticks to most effectively achieve that.”
