This is a huge recognition for us at PT Mowilex Indonesia. I think this award well-captures the essence of our vision: to be the most trusted paint brand in our market. We compete on the basis of quality and environmental responsibility – our key strategic pillars. That Deloitte was able to notice us among a much larger and highly competent pool of companies is extremely gratifying. We interpret this recognition to mean our management is well-focused on continuous improvement. We see the award as forward-looking, and a nod to continue our efforts.


An independent panel of judges consisting of business representatives and academics determined the winners based on the leading practices of Best Managed Companies. This year’s members of the jury are Professor Agus Soehadi, Universitas Prasetiya Mulya; Ancella Anitawati Hermawan, Senior Lecturer, Department of Accounting, University of Indonesia; and Claudia Lauw, Country Leader, Deloitte Indonesia.

Note to Editors:  Some of the winners are listed companies. The term ‘private enterprise’ is used because the majority of the company’s shares are still privately owned either directly or indirectly. This is how we qualify a company’s eligibility for the Best Managed Companies program.
