Company receives award for sixth consecutive year.
Viatel has been named as one of Ireland’s Best Managed companies in the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards programme, in association with Bank of Ireland. The company, which demonstrated superior business performance the sixth year, was recognised at a gala awards dinner in Dublin on 1 March 2019.
This year, 12 new companies join a network of 136 companies that were awarded the status of Best Managed. The Best Managed Companies network this year has total revenues of almost €11 billion, export sales of almost €3 billion and total employment of approximately 44,000 people.
Commenting on the award, Paul Rellis, CEO, Viatel said: “We are convinced that our business success comes from having great people in our business with a very strong customer care focus. Our mantra is “we are big enough to be credible, and small enough to care”. We are very proud that our people’s efforts are recognized in this programme yet again”
Anya Cummins, Partner, Deloitte said: “Well done to all of the winning companies on their achievement. The Best Managed Companies process is a rigorous one, examining every facet of an organisation, and the bar is set high by our judging panel. As ever, the spread of companies, right around the country and across a number of industries, underlines the importance of Irish and Northern Irish companies to the economy and in the midst of economic uncertainty, technology disruption, an open competitive market and full employment, the continued strong performance of these businesses is admirable. In the current environment, it is important for this contribution to be recognised, supported and showcased.”
