Atlas Travel has been awarded a Deloitte Best Managed award for the 4th time in 2020, following a lengthy re-qualification and judging process in which the complete performance of a business is assessed, moving beyond finances to such areas as operational excellence, strategy, and human resource processes.


The awards event in Dublin’s Convention Centre on Friday 6th March marked the 11th year of the Deloitte Best Managed Companies awards programme, in association with Bank of Ireland. The awards were attended by over 800 people from the Irish business community.


Stephen Mc Kenna (CEO Atlas Travel) noted, “Atlas Travel are delighted to have picked up a Deloitte Best Managed award which recognises the contribution of all our team and the collective effort in driving change in Corporate travel management with innovative solutions and servicing concepts. This award recognizes that contribution from everyone in the company and we are now very excited to be part of the larger Club Travel Group which will drive further benefits and servicing concepts to our mutual customers”.


The Deloitte Best Managed Companies programme, in association with Bank of Ireland, promotes and recognises excellence in Irish owned and managed companies. It is the only awards scheme on the island of Ireland that considers a business’ performance from every perspective. Entrants to the programme will compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates the calibre of their management abilities and practices.


Anya Cummins (Partner M&A Advisory Deloitte) commented: “The companies shortlisted for our 11th annual awards include some of the most successful indigenous Irish companies in the market. Some have been in business for years, others are newer, but all have succeeded in driving their businesses forward through recent challenging years. There are new challenges on the horizon including the uncertainty around which Brexit scenario will transpire, which continues to linger in the public discourse. With our shortlisted companies deriving one-quarter of their total sales from exports, this is a very pertinent issue for them, and highlights the importance of strong management teams”.
