Commenting on the award, Bart Arnold, CEO of TVM said: “In the present extraordinary world we are living in with the impact of COVID-19, it is ever more important to highlight the fantastic team at TVM. Every single person has shown the care, commitment and resilience that is the hallmark of this family business”.
Anya Cummins, Lead Partner for the Best Managed Companies Awards Programme at Deloitte said: “We are consistently impressed by the organisations that qualify and requalify for our Best Managed Companies Awards programme, and the contribution that this important cohort of the economy make is highlighted by the turnover and employment numbers of the winning companies. While Irish companies across all sectors navigate issues such as talent acquisition and retention, continuing uncertainty around Brexit and regulatory challenges, the management teams of the winning companies have demonstrated their razor-sharp focus on their objectives, an agility to adapt in a disruptive market place and to innovate and use technology as a real differentiator for them.
“The fast pace of disruption in the current marketplace makes it critical for organisations to maintain holistic, integrated strategies and seek long-term growth opportunities. Through the Best Managed Companies Awards Programme, we are working with applicant companies to help them focus on strategies that will drive sustainable growth for them into the future. We are celebrating 130 companies that are not afraid to be challenged on their strategies – in fact want to be challenged – and that have risen to the challenge.”
Nikki Canavan, Senior Director, Bank of Ireland Corporate Banking said: “The Best Managed Companies programme is a unique opportunity for organisations to not only examine and improve upon their overall performance, but importantly to celebrate the hard work that their teams put in all year round. The programme has supported numerous indigenous Irish companies to re-evaluate and strengthen their business strategies and their growth and development plans. It is inspiring to watch such a vast number of companies requalify for this prestigious award and retain their position in this impressive and growing alumni of best managed companies in Ireland.”
