The Company of the Year Award recognizes the hotel company that has demonstrated outstanding achievements and made significant contributions to the hotel industry as well as the community at large.

SilverBirch’s extensive expansion of its portfolio of properties and partnering with major brands across Canada in the past year made them stand out from the competition. With the successful rebranding of the Residence Inn® by Marriott Vancouver Downtown and the TownePlace Suites® by Marriott Mississauga – Airport Corporate Centre in 2012, the company continues to grow and recently opened  the Fairfield Inn & Suites® by Marriott St. John’s Newfoundland and the DoubleTree by Hilton™ Hotel and Conference Centre Regina. SilverBirch is also on course with four new openings in 2014 including the DoubleTree by Hilton™ West Edmonton, the Homewood Suites by Hilton® and Hampton Inn by Hilton™ in Halifax and the first Home2 Suites by Hilton® in Canada in Edmonton.

“These are very exciting times for SilverBirch, and we are honoured that our achievements and contributions are being recognized with the Company of the Year award,” said Steve Giblin, President & CEO of SilverBirch Hotels & Resorts. “Our strategy to revitalize our portfolio and partner with international brand leaders has been successful and thanks to a strong and committed team of people across Canada we operate all of our hotels to the highest standards and guest services. I know all of our associates are proud of this award.”

Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the Pinnacle Award has been honouring leading individuals and companies that have made outstanding contributions to the industry. Winners of the awards are distinguished for their contributions to the image of the industry through civic, educational and community involvement as well as their efforts in establishing innovative concepts in foodservice or hotel management.
