The Programme recognises indigenous Irish companies across the island of Ireland who are operating at the highest levels of business performance. An independent judging panel, chaired by Liam O’Mahony, measured company performance by looking at a broad range of criteria including strategy, capability, commitment, financials and management performance across all key functions of the business.

“We are really delighted to receive this award. It recognises the success of our business strategy and is a true reflection of the effort and commitment of all our employees. We are excited about the future and will start our expansion into the British market this year,” commented Justin Keatinge, Managing Director, Version 1.

    Brendan Jennings, Managing Partner, Deloitte and judging panel member commented: “Huge congratulations must go to all the winners of this year’s programme. The judging panel were extremely impressed with the innovative strategies that are being adopted by Irish management teams. From diversification strategies to a particular focus on foreign expansion and overseas markets, Irish companies are exploiting new and exciting opportunities to ensure growth in their companies.”
