Best Managed Companies - celebrating Danish business excellence

  • Danish owned and managed companies are the backbone of our economy and the cornerstone of our local society. Through the Best Managed Companies programme (BMC), we aim to recognise the overall success of these strong privately-owned companies based on strategic direction, ability to execute, corporate culture and financial performance.

“With Best Managed Companies, we want to bring attention to the Danish medium-sized companies that are truly outstanding so that our entire small great nation can see why they are best-in-class. Our hope is to encourage, develop and inspire Danish companies to put in the efforts that will ensure growth and international expansion.”

Another Best Managed company is V. Guldmann that works with the development, manufacture, and sales of welfare technology, e.g. ceiling hoists, lifts and slings. V. Guldmann has organised itself around a dynamic, hands-on management approach and short decision paths. The company has a persistent, simple and clear communication strategy, which makes the company’s ambitious goals clear to the employees.

Other companies that have won the title of being a Best Managed Company in 2020 are PolyTech, a global supplier to the wind power industry, Knauf, a full-line supplier to the construction industry, Pankas, a global contracting company, HusCompagniet, one of the largest construction companies in the Nordics, Blue Water Shipping, a global transport and logistics company, the sports equipment company Sport24, the recycling company RGS Nordic, and the textile company Beirholm Group.

Søren Nørgaard Thomsen, CEO of Blue Water Shipping says:

“Being part of Deloitte’s Best Managed Companies programme has been a great experience. Deloitte and its coaches provided professional guidance and coaching throughout the programme, which enabled us to challenge the status quo and reflect on how we can take our business to the next level. Besides that, being a BMC winner is a seal of approval, and something we can use to create awareness and external acknowledgement of our business.”
