PM Group was first recognised as a Best Managed Company in 2011. The announcement was made at a symposium and awards ceremony attended by Ireland’s Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD.
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.
Commenting on the award, Dave Murphy, CEO, PM Group said: ”This is a very important award for us because it recognises not just business performance but the performance of our entire team in all locations. Teamwork is at the heart of PM Group and one of the reasons our clients come back to us time and again. We are very pleased to be part of the Deloitte Best Managed Companies programme because it celebrates the whole company’s willingness to go the extra mile.”
Now in its fourth year, the awards also included twenty new companies who demonstrated superior business performance with particular emphasis on strategy, capability and commitment.
Brendan Jennings, Managing Partner, Deloitte and judging panel member commented: “Huge congratulations must go to all the winners of this year’s programme. The judging panel were extremely impressed with the innovative strategies that are being adopted by Irish management teams. From diversification strategies to a particular focus on foreign expansion and overseas markets, Irish companies are exploiting new and exciting opportunities to ensure growth in their companies.”
David Harney, CEO, Irish Life Corporate Business, and fellow judging panel member said: “Ireland's best natural resource is still our people and as a country we have a huge demographic advantage particularly over our European neighbours. Best in class management of our companies is key to capitalising on this resource. Seeing the progress of companies in this programme would make one very optimistic about the future.”
