Deloitte Awards 2017

Collins McNicholas has been named as one of Ireland’s ‘Best Managed’ companies in the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards Programme. The company, which demonstrated superior business performance for the fourth year running, 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 people from the Irish business community.

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 now employs over 60,000 people around the country and has a combined turnover of almost €11bn. Recognising the importance of overseas markets for Irish companies, the Best Managed Companies also recorded an average growth in sales of 44% over the last three years.

Commenting on the award, Niall Murray, Managing Director, Collins McNicholas Recruitment said:

“We are delighted to win this award for the fourth year in a row. This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team, and the exceptional level of service they deliver, that has helped us to grow this business over the last 27 years. We pride ourselves on the long-standing relationships we build with our customers and we would like to extend our thanks to all our customers for their loyalty over the years. Congratulations to all of this year’s winners”

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

“Congratulations to all the 2017 winners. All the companies here tonight are 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. It is clear that these companies make an invaluable contribution to the Irish economy – employing 60,000 people and generating a turnover of €11bn.”

Sasha Wiggins, CEO of Barclays Bank Ireland, added:

“We believe that great people make the best companies. Behind this year’s winning companies are 60,000 people who combined have demonstrated an absolute commitment to business excellence. The Barclays team is delighted to have had the opportunity to support this diverse range of inspiring companies in the development of their unique strategies and we wish them continued success in the future.”
