Customer focus and strong demand for risk management solutions drives growth
Iceberg Networks has made the list of Canada’s most successful companies for 2017, placing #161 in the annual PROFIT 500, the definitive ranking of Canada’s fastest-growing companies. Published in the October issue of Maclean’s magazine and at CanadianBusiness.com, the list ranks Canadian businesses by their five-year revenue growth.
Iceberg made the 2017 PROFIT 500 list with five-year revenue growth of over 400%, and this is the third year in a row that Iceberg has been listed.
The Ottawa-based company works with North America’s largest financial institutions, enterprises and government organizations to deliver Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC) programs, including software, professional services and management consulting.
“Organizations want to achieve a better understanding of risk — whether that’s from a cyber risk perspective, or third party risk, or audit and so on — in order to make more effective business decisions,” says Ken McPherson, Iceberg’s CEO.
“We’re focused on making sure customers can be successful. We call it deployable success – that there’s user adoption and user acceptance of the GRC program at the end of the day, not just for the tactical use case but for the executives of the company as well,” he says.
Iceberg is ranked #5 for companies in the Ottawa area on this year’s list. The company is based in Kanata North, a hotbed of innovative technology companies in Canada’s capital. Iceberg continues to expand its operations into the United States, as it leverages a strategic partnership with RSA Archer, an industry leader in GRC software.
“We have one of the largest teams of GRC professionals in this space in North America, including a lot of recent graduates from Canadian universities,” says McPherson. “The commitment and work they bring every day to help our customers is why we’re been able to help our clients find success, and continue to grow as a company. ”
