Stealth/UCIT Online President Erik Mikkelsen said, “Being on the Growth 500 list for 10 straight years is a great honor. It’s been our focus on customer service, continuous improvement and building a great team of people that have allowed us to grow from a small Toronto-based security firm to the largest independent video monitoring company in North America. With new advancements in video technology, artificial intelligence and computer vision, we’re just getting started.”
“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.”
