CR2 announced as one of Ireland’s Best Managed Companies 2023

CR2 has been named as one of Ireland’s Best Managed Companies 2023. The awards programme is led by Deloitte Ireland, in association with Bank of Ireland. The company, which demonstrated superior business performance for the third year in a row this year, was recognised at an awards ceremony on Thursday, 14 September, in Dublin. This year marked the 15th annual awards.

The Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards promote and recognise business’ performance from every perspective. A detailed judging process precedes the recognition, evaluating the entire management team and business strategy. The judges look beyond financial performance at areas such as a company’s environmental, social and governance standards, strategic planning and talent strategy as part of the process.

Commenting on the award, Paul Geraghty, CFO, CR2, said: “Our technology solutions enable banks to deliver excellent customer experiences. Each day we power millions of bank interactions across some of the most exciting markets in the world. This award is great recognition of the progress we are making as a business. The last 12 months has been our most successful to date with new business wins in new countries together with strong business growth across our existing customer base. This can only happen when we deliver as a team, when we do lots of small things consistently well. We are proud to be recognised three years in a row, it provides great motivation to continue to get even better.”

Brian Murphy, Lead Partner for Ireland’s Best Managed Companies Awards Programme at Deloitte Ireland said: “This year we’re celebrating 15 years of the BMC programme and the incredible companies that have qualified. Even though this year’s cohort faced into another challenging period, over the past 15 years we’ve seen how indigenous Irish businesses find opportunities in change. Strengthening governance and recognising the value of specialist expert advice on critical areas such as ESG were key discussion points in the coaching sessions. We also saw companies increasingly focused on innovation driving internationalisation. Despite the uncertainties of the past few years, the confidence of Irish businesses is clear as more and more are scaling their market reach internationally”.
