ActronAir is among eight private Australian companies recognised for their outstanding business performance in Deloitte Australia’s first ever Best Managed Companies (BMC) awards.
The program, established in Canada in 1993, uses Deloitte global insights and global best practices -
generated from over 25 years working with private companies - to identify and celebrate privately owned and managed companies across Australia that set the highest standards of business performance.
It also shines a light on the power of private business as a key driver of Australia’s economy.
In association with the program sponsors –Google Cloud, Qantas, Commonwealth Bank and the Business Council of Australia - the winners were announced at a Gala event in Sydney last night.
Deloitte's national leader for the Best Managed Companies program, Natalie Faull, said Deloitte is proud to bring this 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 financial.
“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,” Faull said.
“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.”
ActronAir managing director Norman Windell,said the award gives the manufacturer the assurance that the most fundamental areas of the business measure up to stringent international standards.
“This is absolutely essential to enable us as an Australian manufacture to compete successfully with the major multi-nationals in our industry,” Windell said.
