The Now Factory wins Deloitte Best Managed Company Award
DUBLIN – March 6, 2013 – The Now Factory announced today that it has been named as one of Ireland’s ‘Best Managed’ companies in the Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards Programme. The Company also received special recognition for its high-quality submission centred on capability. Twenty companies were recognised at an awards gala dinner in the Burlington Hotel in Dublin on 1 March, where they were joined by former Taoiseach and Chairman of IFSC Ireland, John Bruton.
The Deloitte Best Managed Companies Awards Programme, in association with Irish Life Corporate Business, recognises indigenous Irish companies across the island of Ireland, which are operating at the highest levels of business performance.
Commenting on the award, Tom Morrisroe, Chief Executive Officer, The Now Factory said, “We are thrilled to be recognised as a Deloitte Best Managed Company. This prestigious award affirms our position as one of the leading innovators in the high-tech sector, achieving significant worldwide business success in a highly competitive market.”
An independent judging panel, chaired by Liam O’Mahony, measured company performance by looking at a broad range of criteria including strategy, capability, commitment, financials and management performance across all key functions of the business. The Best Managed Companies Awards Programme is the only awards programme that considers a business’ performance from every perspective.

Deloitte is proud to celebrate their success and potential. These awards acknowledge their hard work and commitment and we are delighted to showcase their achievements.”
