CTE Recognized as a US Best Managed Company for Third Year in a Row

CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 10 — CTE is proud to announce it has been selected as a 2023 US Best Managed Company. Sponsored by Deloitte* Private and The Wall Street Journal, the program recognizes outstanding U.S. private companies and the achievements of their management teams.

The 2023 designees are U.S. private companies that have demonstrated excellence in strategic planning and execution, a commitment to their people and fostering a dynamic culture, as well as strong financials. Designees propelled their businesses forward and remained true to their purpose and values by investing in their people, creating advantage through digital transformation, taking measurable action on sustainability, and demonstrating their commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

“We are grateful to have a robust brand portfolio and a dedicated team of amazing people,” said Ed Weisiger, Jr., president and CEO of CTE. “Everything we do is centered around serving our employees, customers and communities. It’s an honor to be recognized in this capacity for the third year in a row and I am proud to dedicate this award to the 2,000 teammates who bring our purpose to life each and every day.”


Applicants are evaluated and selected by a panel of external judges focused on assessing hallmarks of excellence in four key areas: strategy, ability to execute, corporate culture and governance/financial performance. They join a global ecosystem of honorees from more than 46 countries recognized by the Best Managed Companies program.
