TuGo Named Canada’s Best Managed Companies Gold Standard Member

(Richmond, Mar 9, 2016) - TuGo (formerly Travel Underwriters), one of Canada’s top travel insurance providers, was a winner of Canada’s Best Managed Companies program in 2012. They have since demonstrated commitment to the program and successfully reapplied for the designation as a Gold Standard winner in 2015.

“At TuGo, we believe travel can help make the world a better place,” says Kathy Starko, Executive Director- Chief Production Officer. “Without our great team of people, we wouldn’t have been able to evolve into a travel insurance company that helps people have better travel experiences. It’s so exciting and rewarding to be recognized for our hard work and passion.”

Becoming a Gold Standard winner is another accomplishment to add to TuGo’s history books. The company was recently the only North American company nominated for Underwriter/Travel Insurer of the Year 2015 at the International Travel and Health Insurance Journal Awards.

Canada's Best Managed Companies continues to be the mark of excellence for Canadian-owned and managed companies. Every year since the launch of the program in 1993, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies have competed for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates their management skills and practices.
