Mainline has demonstrated superior business performance for the 9 years in a row. Our proficiency in delivering excellence in projects has been recognised by Deloitte and we have been awarded Platinum Standard again, in the 2021 Best Managed Companies Awards.
25 companies have qualified for the first time in the 2021 Best Managed Companies Awards programme. They join a network of 139 companies across 26 counties in Ireland. This exceptional network of companies contributes a turnover of €8.5 billion and retains 40,000 skilled people.
Mainline CEO, Jamie O’Rourke recognises this award as a testament to how Mainline has demonstrated flexibility, excellence in operational performance, a culture of innovation, and a safe working environment for more than two decades. Jamie accredits this award to the strength of the management team but, more importantly, the persistence, focus, and hard work invested by each staff member across the organisation.
Harry Goddard, CEO, Deloitte Ireland and a member of the judging panel said: “This year’s winning companies had robust strategies in place prior to the pandemic, which enabled them to respond comprehensively to the changing situations they found themselves in. With no sector untouched by the impact of Covid-19, many companies remained committed to ensuring that they did not fall into the trap of doing things like they had always been done, just because that had worked in the past; in fact, many companies took the extraordinary challenge as an opportunity to develop and improve processes.”
The members of this year’s judging panel were Frank Ryan, Chair of the Judging Panel; Harry Goddard, CEO, Deloitte Ireland; Nikki Canavan, Senior Director, Bank of Ireland Corporate Banking; Kate Malone, Director of Human Resources, IMI; Feargal Mooney, Non-Executive Director, Meetingsbooker and Colm O’Reilly, CEO, The Business Post.
