TG Eakin Ltd has been named as one of Ireland’s ‘Best Managed’ companies in the prestigious Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards.
As one of only twenty companies who were chosen, our efforts were recognised at an awards gala dinner in the Burlington Hotel in Dublin, which was attended by the Irish Taoiseach, Mr Brian Cowen T.D., on Friday 5th March 2010.
Now in it’s second year, the Awards Programme is open to companies from all 32 counties on the island of Ireland and is the only awards body that considers a business’ performance from every perspective.
The independent judging panel reviewed a broad range of criteria including strategy, capability, commitment, financial performance and growth potential across all key functions of the business. Given the turbulent economic environment, the judges recognised that business and management success can no longer simply be measured by increased sales, profit or turnover. For that reason, a holistic view of the company, performance in relation to competitors, and the industries specific factors were considered in order to determine management success.
Commenting on the winners of the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards Programme, Pat Cullen, Managing Partner, Deloitte said, “To be recognised as a Best Managed Company is a tremendous achievement. Our judging panel takes an in-depth look at each company – therefore to be chosen as a winner is testament to the sound management practices that are being implemented across the entire business.”
David Latto, Head of Corporate Banking, Bank of Scotland (Ireland), and judging panel member added that, “The 20 winning companies are an inspiration for all Irish companies by managing to show great focus and dedication in what has been a difficult year”.
As identified by the judges, among the key factors contributing to the success of TG Eakin Ltd is the strong relationships built with our distributors, regular business planning, high employee morale, an innovative approach to manufacturing and an excellent level of service delivered by the company. This award is a true reflection on the skills and efforts of the company as a whole.
