H&MV Engineering has been named as one of Irelands Best Managed Companies.
The Limerick company demonstrated superior business performance and was recognised at a virtual awards ceremony on Wednesday, September 8.
Commenting on the Irelands Best Managed Companies award, PJ Flanagan, CEO, H&MV Engineering said, “H&MV are delighted to have been recognised. The success of the business is a testament to the can-do ethos in our culture. Ireland is where our HQ is based and as a world-class engineering company, we are always on the lookout for top talent to join our design hubs in Limerick, Dublin, Cork & Thurles.”
The awards programme is led by Deloitte Ireland, in association with Bank of Ireland.
The members of this year’s judging panel were Frank Ryan, Chair of the Judging Panel; Harry Goddard, CEO, Deloitte Ireland; Nikki Canavan, Senior Director, Bank of Ireland Corporate Banking; Kate Malone, Director of Human Resources, IMI; Feargal Mooney, Non-Executive Director, Meetingsbooker and Colm O’Reilly, CEO, The Business Post.
Harry Goddard, CEO, Deloitte Ireland and judging panel member commented, “This year’s winning companies had robust strategies in place prior to the pandemic, which enabled them to respond comprehensively to the changing situations they found themselves in. With no sector untouched by the impact of Covid-19, many companies remained committed to ensuring that they did not fall into the trap of doing things like they had always been done, just because it worked in the past; in fact, many companies took the extraordinary challenges as an opportunity to develop and improve processes.
“The judges noted that, despite the risk of falling into crisis mode and focusing solely on the immediate challenges facing their businesses, the winning companies were adept at maintaining a long-term view of where their organisations were going and a strong clarity of purpose on what the business was trying to achieve, and why.”
This year’s programme saw the highest number of new applicants in its 13-year history, with 25 companies qualifying for the first time.
The winning companies represent 26 counties across the island of Ireland and come from a range of sectors. Including this year’s winners, there are 139 companies that are recognised as Ireland’s Best Managed Companies.
