McAree Engineering has been named as one of Ireland’s ‘Best Managed’ companies in the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards Programme. The company was recognised at an awards gala dinner in Dublin on 3 March 2017.
The awards event in Dublin’s Convention Centre marked the ninth year of the Deloitte Best Managed Companies awards programme, in association with Barclays Bank Ireland. The awards were attended by over 900 business people.
The Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards Programme, in association with Barclays Bank Ireland, recognises indigenous Irish companies across Ireland which are operating at the highest levels of business performance.
The network of 127 Best Managed Companies employs over 60,000 people on the island of Ireland with a combined turnover of almost €11bn.
Recognising the importance of overseas markets, the Best Managed Companies also recorded an average growth in sales of 44% over the last three years.
Commenting on the award, Brendan McAree, McAree Engineering Managing Director said: “we are delighted to have received this recognition on the way that the company is run and managed by the team in place.
Sixteen companies from around Ireland were awarded “Best Managed” status for the first time this year, following a detailed judging process.
This took into consideration the complete performance of the business and criteria such as operational excellence, strategy and human resource processes.
Managing Partner of Deloitte and judging panel member, Brendan Jennings commented: “Congratulations to all the 2017 winners. All these companies were at the end of a long process of evaluation, which makes their Best Managed designation even more rewarding and valuable as a marketing tool for their business.”
Sasha Wiggins, CEO of Barclays Bank Ireland, added: “We believe that great people make the best companies. The Barclays team is delighted to have had the opportunity to support this diverse range of inspiring companies and we wish them continued success in the future.”
