Wexford firms invited to enter Deloitte best companies programme
Deloitte marked the 10th anniversary of its Best Managed Companies Awards, and invited Wexford companies to enter this year's programme, in association with new programme sponsor Bank of Ireland.
The 2008 launch of the first Best Managed Companies Awards coincided with the emergence of the global financial crisis and marked the beginning of a decade of unprecedented economic turbulence for indigenous Irish companies, operating all around the country, and exporting to the UK, Europe and further afield.
The awards programme showcases the success of indigenous companies and acknowledges the contribution that they make to the Irish economy. The network of Best Managed Companies developed over the last decade now stands at 127, and nine companies are marking a decade within the programme this year. These companies represent excellence in management abilities and practices across all the key functions of their business. Brendan Jennings, Managing Partner, Deloitte said: 'For ten years, we have met and worked alongside some of the finest Irish companies. Some of these were established from opportunities spotted during the downturn, others were faced with the task of surviving during a torrid few years for the Irish and global economies. In spite of the challenges, they have grown and developed'. The Best Managed Companies judging panel considers companies from every perspective using a wide range of criteria including strategy, capability, commitment, financials and management performance and practices.
