More About Us
In association with the program sponsors – Google Cloud, Qantas, Commonwealth Bank and Business Council of Australia - the winners were announced at a Gala event in Sydney last night.
Natalie Faull, Deloitte Private Partner and National Leader - Best Managed Companies program, said: "We’re proud to bring Deloitte’s established Best Managed Companies global program to Australia for the first time. The judges evaluated the strengths of applicants across four key pillars: strategy, culture and commitment, capabilities and innovation, and governance and financials - and these eight businesses are deserved winners.
“It’s about celebrating the passion, focus, dynamism and growth that Australia’s best private companies are renowned for. They are often the disruptors – developing and adopting new technology swiftly, supporting local communities in unique ways, and always looking for growth and success beyond our borders. “The program’s vision is to identify and showcase the incredible achievements of private companies as they continue to go from strength to strength, and help them cultivate new learnings. It offers valuable opportunities for coaching, local and global networking, visibility, connectivity and recognition - and there's an enormous amount to learn from our global counterparts. Our program sponsors bring a diverse perspective to our inaugural cohort of Best Managed Company applicants, and we’re thrilled to have them on board.”
Andrew Culley, Deloitte Private Managing Partner, said: “Congratulations to our eight winners - it’s wonderful to have such a diverse range of companies. All set the benchmark for organisational excellence and are committed to growing their business and developing leaders of the future.
“With so many Australian private companies having a strong impact, we’re really pleased to be involved in recognising such an important part of the Australian market. Our challenge now to Australian private companies is to enter next year’s program and join this illustrious alumni and rapidly expanding global network."
