The Deloitte Best Managed Companies Award recognises excellence in Irish and Northern Irish owned and managed companies and is a symbol of organisational success and achievement. The awards programme recognises companies each year across the island of Ireland that demonstrate superior business performance. Winning companies can requalify for a further two years and then have the opportunity to apply for the Gold Standard Award in the fourth year. Winners that maintain Best Managed status for seven consecutive years are awarded Platinum membership.

An independent judging panel reviews a broad range of criteria under the headings of strategy, capability, commitment and financial performance.

The Joe Duffy Group was recognised for the provision of top quality customer service and for a robust business model that has allowed the Group to grow and diversify its brand portfolio.
