Piab has received the 2019 Sweden’s Best Managed Companies recognition, sponsored by Deloitte in cooperation with Nasdaq.
Taby, Sweden – Best Managed Companies is a quality award to recognize the overall success of private Swedish companies based on strategic direction, ability to execute, corporate culture and financial performance. Best Managed Companies was established in Canada in 1993 and has since then been introduced in more than 20 countries around the world. Sweden’s Best Managed Companies was launched during 2018 by Deloitte in cooperation with Nasdaq. This is the inaugural year of the award. 20 companies participated in the program and an independent jury panel selected 12 companies that fulfil all the quality requirements.
”We are proud to recognise these twelve Swedish companies. All of them are immensely successful companies with a clear strategic agenda and robust internal processes,” says Therese Kjellberg, partner at Deloitte and responsible for Best Managed Companies in Sweden.
”There are many strong companies in Sweden, and it has been exciting to get to know some of them through this program.
