Musgrave Group has been named as one of Ireland’s ‘Best Managed’ companies in the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards for a third time. First recognised as a Best Managed Company in 2009 and 2010. Musgrave Group demonstrated superior business performance again this year and was recognised at a gala awards dinner in the Burlington Hotel in Dublin on 4 March 2011.
The Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards Programme, in association with Irish Life Corporate Business, recognises indigenous Irish companies across the island of Ireland which are operating at the highest levels of business performance. It is the only awards programme that considers companies from every perspective including strategy, capability, commitment, financials and growth potential across all key functions of the business.
Winners of the awards can apply to requalify as a Deloitte Best Managed Company for two consecutive years, following receipt of the award. Companies applying for requalification must satisfy the programme eligibility criteria and go through a requalification review process in order to ensure that they continue to uphold the standard of a Deloitte Best Managed Company.
Commenting on the award, Chris Martin, CEO, Musgrave Group said: “Being named as a Deloitte Best Managed Company again this year is a testament to the great focus and dedication shown by our staff in what has been a challenging year for us all. The quality and commitment of our teams means we are well positioned to trade through this challenging cycle, providing our customers with exceptional service and a great value offering without sacrificing our long standing commitment to Irish suppliers and jobs.“
Commenting on the winners of the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards Programme, Pat Cullen, Managing Partner, Deloitte and judging panel member said: “Despite the negative sentiment that currently prevails, the Best Managed Companies Awards Programme shows that Irish indigenous companies are a cornerstone of growth in the Irish economy and can and will play an important role in Ireland’s overall recovery. For proof of this, you need look no further than this year’s winners.“
Damian Fadden, Director, Irish Life Corporate Business, and fellow judging panel member said: “Irish Life Corporate Business is delighted to support the Deloitte Best Managed Companies initiative. Ireland’s economic recovery can benefit hugely from the contribution made by its indigenous business sector, and this initiative helps companies in that sector to showcase their success and to benefit from expert mentoring to help them move to the next level. Our staff have met many of the participating companies and have been very impressed with their innovation and determination – on behalf of Irish Life Corporate Business I would like to wish all the companies every success in 2011 and beyond.“
The Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards Programme is open to companies from all 32 counties on the island of Ireland. It is the only awards programme that considers a business’ performance from every perspective. Details of entry for the 2012 Awards will be issued in the coming weeks on www.deloittebestmanaged.ie.
The ’Best Managed’ designation is an important marketing tool for the winning companies – but, perhaps most importantly, the awards provide a reason to celebrate the efforts of the entire company.
