Designing a Future of Success: Mayhew Honoured As One of
Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies
TORONTO — Mayhew, a premier Ontario design firm focused on workplace strategy, is celebrating 30 years in the GTA and kicking off the milestone anniversary as one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies with Marcia Mayhew at the helm.
Mayhew has a team of over 150 designers, workplace strategists, construction managers, ergonomists and product experts. Their innovative and award-winning designs and workplace solutions have physically shaped the way brands like CTV, GlaxoSmithKline, Pfaff Automotive Partners and University of Windsor do business. As a workplace consultancy and design firm Mayhew also celebrated the launch of Toronto’s first co-branded work-showroom with Steelcase in late 2011.
Ms. Mayhew is a young entrepreneur and fourth generation leader, who is progressively carving out a profitable path for the company. This award stands not only as a badge of honour for the company, but also serves as a great personal accomplishment: “The confidences my parents invested in me and the expectations set for the business once seemed so daunting,” says Ms. Mayhew, President of the family run firm. “But my resolve to pull together the right resources and ensure that Mayhew was financially sound and primed to grow has not only proven its worth, but has made me a better person, a better leader and a proud daughter. I sincerely look forward to designing the future successes of Mayhew.”
Pfaff Automotive Partners is a prized client of Mayhew and also recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies. Their most recent collaboration, Canada’s first-ever McLaren dealership, was met with design accolades worthy of the elite product team that filled its space.
“It is always a pleasure to work with Marcia Mayhew and her project team,” says Christopher Pfaff, CEO of Pfaff Automotive Partners. “The talented design team always marry form and function to design a space suited to the calibre of the cars we showcase and the behind the scenes work that goes into a successful automotive business,” he says.
“I am so proud to be named among Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies. It is a testament to the strength and talent of our entire team,” says Ms. Mayhew, President of the family run workplace consultancy firm. “We have successfully navigated volatile economic conditions and proactively implemented our succession agenda. We drove down costs, accelerated operational efficiencies, invested in our business model and executed these same principles in our client projects,” she says.
Mayhew has 150 employees and is headquartered in Toronto, Ontario with offices in Kitchener, Windsor and Stoney Creek. Synonymous with space and interior design ingenuity, Mayhew has designed award winning spaces for Business News Network and the CTV Olympic Digital Lounge among others. With a mission to create and maintain workplaces that work, Mayhew has designed over 22 million square feet of space, successfully moved 300,000 people, and supplied and installed over 100,000 workstations.
