CEC Announced as one of Ireland's Best Managed Companies 2023

Controlled Environments Company (CEC) has been named as one of Ireland's Best Managed Companies. The awards programme is led by Deloitte, in association with Bank of Ireland. The company, which demonstrated superior business performance, was recognised at an awards ceremony on Thursday 14th September. There are 130 indigenous companies recognised with this classification, representing 24 of the 32 counties across the island of Ireland.

The network of companies has a combined turnover of €17 billion and €3 billion of export sales, providing employment for over 53,000 people across Ireland across a range of sectors - from manufacturing and tech to construction and food and beverage. A detailed judging process precedes the recognition, evaluating the entire management team and business strategy. The judges look beyond financial performance at areas such as a company's environmental, social and governance standards, strategic planning and talent strategy, when awarding Ireland's top privately owned businesses.

Commenting on the award, John Doyle, CEO, Controlled Environments Company said: "I am delighted to receive this award on behalf of CEC and that the strong performance of our company and the hard work across all our teams has been recognised by the judging panel. I'd like to thank our excellent management team and all involved in achieving this award."

Brian Murphy, Lead Partner for Ireland's Best Managed Companies Awards Programme at Deloitte Ireland said: "This year we're celebrating 15 years of the BMC programme and the incredible companies that have qualified. Even though this year's cohort faced into another challenging period, over the past 15 years we've seen how indigenous Irish businesses find opportunities in change. Strengthening governance and recognising the value of specialist expert advice on critical areas such as ESG were key discussion points in the coaching sessions. We also saw companies increasingly focused on innovation driving internationalisation. Despite the uncertainties of the past few years, the confidence of Irish businesses is clear as more and more are scaling their market reach internationally."

Nikki Canavan, Senior Director, Head of Origination & Sustainability, Corporate Banking Ireland, and judging panel member said: "Over the last number of years the companies in the Best Managed Companies network have shown huge strength in the face of disruption and uncertainty. This year in particular - a year that tested Irish businesses like never before - the judges noted the commitment, bravery, resilience and tenacity of the applicant companies."
