The CDE Global Board with the company's latest Deloitte Best Managed Companies Award
CDE Global has been named as one of Ireland’s ‘Best Managed’ companies in the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards Programme for the seventh consecutive year. The company, said to demonstrate superior business performance, was recognised with a special Platinum award at a gala dinner in Dublin. The awards, held in association with Barclays Bank Ireland, were attended by over 800 from the Irish business community. Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton gave a keynote address at the awards gala.
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.
Commenting on the award, Brendan McGurgan, managing director of CDE Global, said: “We are thrilled to once again win this award for Best Managed Company and to be awarded the Platinum title on this, our seventh year is particularly significant for us. The Platinum accolade is testament to the strength of our management structures, our ability to innovate and achieve our strategic goals and our strength in competing within four sectors across seven global regions”.
The four main sectors in which CDE Global operates are construction and recycling, mining, industrial sands and environmental. Global Design Headquarters is in Northern Ireland and the company also have an office in Kolkata, India to serve the Asian market, an office in Sao Paulo, Brazil to serve the Latin American market and an office in North Carolina, USA, to serve the North American market.
Former CEO of Enterprise Ireland, Frank Ryan, chaired the independent judging panel that took a holistic approach to measuring company performance, looking at strategy, capability, commitment, and management performance, in addition to financials.
Commenting on this year’s programme, Brendan Jennings, managing partner of Deloitte and judging panel member, said: “Whether receiving this accolade for the first or the seventh time, it is no mean feat, and it reflects a high level of commitment and capability. In working closely with these companies for the best part of a year, it’s clear to see why they are being recognised as Best Managed. It is a defined strategy, clearly communicated and executed; a belief in innovation in products and practices as a cornerstone of growth; a recognition of the importance of R&D spend; and an intuitive understanding of their marketplace.”
The Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards Programme is open to companies from all 32 counties in Ireland. Details of entry for the 2015/2016 programme will be issued in the coming weeks on www.deloittebestmanaged.ie.
Head of Large Corporates for Barclays Bank Ireland, Helen Kelly added: “Success is not just about the strength of a company’s management team but how their strengths are leveraged to maximise that company’s potential and this is something that we at Barclays have witnessed over the past few weeks and months in working with each of these best managed companies. As lead sponsor, it has been a great pleasure to mentor and support each of these management teams and on behalf of everyone at Barclays I would like to congratulate them sincerely on their awards.”
The Best Managed Companies Awards Programme was created to recognise the overall success of a company, including management strength, ability to innovate, strategic initiatives and financial performance – all the elements that contribute to a Best Managed company. The ’Best Managed’ designation is an important marketing tool for the winning companies – but, perhaps most importantly, the award provides a reason to celebrate the efforts of the entire company.
