Castlecool achieves Gold Standard in the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Award 2013

By Andrew Shortt

Castlecool has been named as one of Ireland’s ‘Best Managed’ companies in the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards Programme for the fourth year in a row. The company was recognised at a gala awards dinner in the Burlington Hotel in Dublin on 1 March 2013. Former Taoiseach and Chairman of IFSC Ireland, John Bruton, was special guest speaker at the event.

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.

Companies that have been recognised as a Best Managed Company for four years running are awarded with a special ‘gold standard’ accolade. In total 14 companies were designated with the gold standard this year.

Commenting on the award, Paul Shortt, Managing Director, Castlecool said:

“We are delighted to be recognised by Deloitte as a Gold Standard company in their Best Managed Companies awards for 2013. This is our fourth consecutive award from Deloitte and everyone here in Castlecool is very proud of this achievement. I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of all the staff and management in Castlecool.”

Brendan Jennings, Managing Partner, Deloitte and judging panel member commented:

“This year’s Best Managed Companies represent the best of innovation, creativity, dynamism, tenacity and excellence in the indigenous sector. Deloitte is proud to celebrate their success and potential. These awards acknowledge their hard work and commitment and we are delighted to showcase their achievements.”

An independent judging panel, chaired by Liam O’Mahony, measured company performance by looking at a broad range of criteria including strategy, capability, commitment, financials and management performance across all key functions of the business. The Best Managed Companies Awards Programme is the only awards programme that considers a business’ performance from every perspective.

The Best Managed Companies Awards Programme was created to recognise the overall success of a company, including management strength, ability to innovate, strategic initiatives and financial performance – all the elements that contribute to a Best Managed company. The ’Best Managed’ designation is an important marketing tool for the winning companies – but, perhaps most importantly, the award provides a reason to celebrate the efforts of the entire company.
