Company named first-time winner in all-Ireland business awards
Dublin, Ireland – Tuesday 10th March, 2015: Leading mobile communications platform vendor Openmind Networks has been named as one of Ireland’s ‘Best Managed’ companies in the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards Programme. Openmind, which was commended for the strength of its submission in the strategy area, received the award in recognition of its superior business performance. The company was selected alongside 16 other first-time winner from a shortlist of 53, to win the coveted industry prize on 6 March at an awards gala dinner held in Dublin.
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. Last November, Openmind also entered the ranks of the Deloitte Technology Fast 50, which recognises the fastest growing technology companies in Ireland. This award further cements its place as a leading technology company in Ireland.
“We are honoured to be recognised as a 2015 Best Managed Company by Deloitte,” said Openmind CEO, Alex Duncan. “Over the past five years, Openmind has demonstrated consistent and considerable growth both globally and within Ireland, becoming the leading supplier of messaging technology world-wide. This is our first year in being awarded a ‘Best Managed’ status by Deloitte, however through continued expansion and market innovation it is a status we now hope to uphold going forward.”
The Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards are in their seventh consecutive year, and 110 of Ireland’s most dynamic and innovative leading companies have been recognised since the awards began. Deloitte’s Best Managed Companies over the last six years have total revenues of approximately €7 billion and employ over 5,000 people.
