Acorn Life, a 100% Irish owned Life Assurance Company providing protection, pensions, savings and investment solutions to the Irish public, was recently announced as a second time recipient of the Deloitte Best Managed Companies (BMC) Award. The company was recognised at an awards gala dinner in Dublin on Thursday 15th March.

The Deloitte BMC Awards are in their 10th year and are lauded as one of the most prestigious awards in the country, recognising Irish companies operating at the highest levels of business performance. The Deloitte Best Managed designation is a symbol of Irish corporate success, and recognises companies that are focused on their core vision, create stakeholder value, excel in all areas of their business, and celebrate the contribution of the entire organisation. In total 137 companies were recognised as Best Managed Companies and have a combined turnover of over €12 billion. 26 of the 32 counties across the island of Ireland were represented by winning companies.

Deloitte Partner, Anya Cummins said: “2018 marks the 10th year of the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards programme, which has grown from 25 companies in year 1 to 137 this year. The programme represents companies from different industries with many industry-specific challenges but also common characteristics such as adaptability, innovation and ambition. Their stories are the stories of Irish business this past decade, and they are stories of resilience, recovery and confidence.”
