Portview has been named as one of Ireland’s top companies in the Deloitte Best Managed Awards, where they received the highest accolade.
Portview, who was praised by a panel of industry experts for their superior business performance, was recognised at a prestigious gala dinner in Dublin on 3 March 2017, where they received a platinum award for their achievements in business excellence and talent management.
The awards event in Dublin’s Convention Centre marked the ninth year of the Deloitte Best Managed Companies awards programme, in association with Barclays Bank Ireland. The awards were attended by over 900 people from the Irish business community.
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. The network of 127 Best Managed Companies now employs over 60,000 people around the country and has a combined turnover of almost €11bn. Recognising the importance of overseas markets for Irish companies, the Best Managed Companies also recorded an average growth in sales of 44% over the last three years.
Portview was just one of three companies in the North to be awarded Platinum membership, firmly placing them at the pinnacle of the business community in Ireland.
Commenting on the award, Simon Campbell, Managing Director of Portview said:
“We’re absolutely thrilled to receive this platinum award in recognition of our consistently high standards of business acumen and client care.
“Our expansion in the last 42 years has been seismic, from being a modest construction company with a handful of employees, to one of the UK’s leading interior fit-out specialists working for some of the world’s top brands across the office, stadia and retail sectors.
“Ensuring clients receive the very best in customer care is of vital importance to us, which is why we invest heavily in the career development of our workforce to ensure they are the best in their field and are confident and fulfilled in their roles.
“I would like to thank every member of our team who have helped us to achieve this incredibly coveted award, which is all down to their hard work, passion and commitment and is the cornerstone of our success.”
Sixteen companies from around Ireland were awarded “Best Managed” status for the first time this year, following a detailed qualification and judging process. This took into consideration the complete performance of the business, looking beyond the finances at criteria such as operational excellence, strategy and human resource processes.
Managing Partner of Deloitte and judging panel member, Brendan Jennings commented:
“Congratulations to all the 2017 winners. All the companies are at the end of a long process of evaluation, which makes their Best Managed designation even more rewarding and valuable as a marketing tool for their business. It is clear that these companies make an invaluable contribution to the Irish economy - employing 60,000 people and generating turnover of €11bn.”
Sasha Wiggins, CEO of Barclays Bank Ireland, added:
“We believe that great people make the best companies. Behind this year’s winning companies are 60,000 people who combined have demonstrated absolute commitment to business excellence. The Barclays team is delighted to have had the opportunity to support this diverse range of inspiring companies in the development of their unique strategies and we wish them continued success in the future.”
The Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards, in association with Barclays Bank Ireland, is open to companies from all 32 counties on the island of Ireland. It is the only awards programme that considers a business’ performance from every perspective.
