Who Are Ireland’s Best Managed Companies?

Ten years of Deloitte programme

16 Mar 2018 | 12.49 pm

Deloitte’s Best Managed Companies cadre now has 22 new companies in its ranks, as the awards programme celebrates ten years on the go. In all, 137 companies achieved ‘Best Managed’ status for 2018, with a combined turnover of €12 billion.

The Deloitte awards, in association with Bank of Ireland, culminated with the Best Managed Companies Awards symposium and gala, which was attended by more than 1,000 people at the CCD.

The 22 new entrants were awarded their Best Managed status following a qualification and judging process. This took into consideration the complete performance of the business, looking beyond the finances at criteria such as operational excellence, strategy and human resource processes.

Five of the new award winners were singled out for special recognition. PFH Technology Group was commended for best submission in Strategy, and Phonovation was commended in the Capability category. Around Noon was commended for Commitment.

Additionally, Meritsoft was recognised for Best Overall Submission, while Codd Mushrooms was the recipient of the annual IMI Award, and was commended for its business model execution and sharp focus.

Deloitte partner Anya Cummins said that the programme began with 25 companies. “The programme represents companies from different industries with many industry-specific challenges but also common characteristics such as adaptability, innovation and ambition,” said Cummins. “Their stories are the stories of Irish business this past decade, and they are stories of resilience, recovery and confidence.”
