Insomnia Coffee Company has once again been named as one of Ireland’s Best Managed Companies. The awards programme is led by Deloitte Ireland, in association with Bank of Ireland. Insomnia has been recognised for demonstrating superior business performance for a fifth successive year, achieving Gold Standard having successfully requalified as a Best Managed Company for 5 years.

The Deloitte Best Managed Companies programme, in association with Bank of Ireland, promotes and recognises excellence in Irish/Northern 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 compete for this designation in a rigorous process that evaluates the calibre of their management abilities and practices.

Commenting on the award, Harry O Kelly, CEO, Insomnia Coffee Company said: “We are immensely proud to once again be recognised as one of Ireland's Best Managed Companies for the fifth consecutive year. This achievement is testament to the dedication and hard work of our exceptional team at Insomnia Coffee. From its inception Insomnia was built on a belief of having the best coffee and an unwavering commitment to quality, innovation, and customer satisfaction. We will continue to raise the bar and look forward to many more years of delivering exceptional coffee and service to our wonderful community."

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”.

Nikki Canavan, Senior Director, Head of Origination & Sustainability, Corporate Banking Ireland, and judging panel member said: “Over the last number of years the companies in the Best Managed Companies network have shown huge strength in the face of disruption and uncertainty. This year in particular – a year that tested Irish businesses like never before – the judges noted the commitment, bravery, resilience and tenacity of the applicant companies.”
