"This award was a fantastic accolade for Meagher’s to achieve. The award has been such a boost for our team, it acted as an affirmation that all our hard work in planning and implementing our strategy has been recognised.

Sharing the title of BMC with such innovative and progressive companies is an honour and especially because Meagher’s are relatively small in size compared to many of the other companies we are delighted to share the title of BMC"

Oonagh O’Hagan, Owner & MD, Meaghers Pharmacy Group

"Being involved in the Deloitte Best Managed programme for the past seven years has proved to be of enormous benefit to the Sam McCauley Group . Deloitte Best Managed has provided us with an annual  external strategy review , it has helped to give us  a clear focus and direction and has ensured that  prudent management has been a continuous focus for the Sam McCauley Group. I would highly recommend it to any organisation who wishes to be the best in their field"

Patrick McCormack, MD, Sam McCauley Chemists Group

"Being a Deloitte Best Managed Company is a very important reward for us, it is giving credit to what we do as a business.  It is the recognition that we are a company that does not just performs well in one year but a company that continues to perform well and we meet a very strict criteria on an annual basis.  We are all a part of a team of people trying to satisfy a customer and meet with their needs, Deloitte BMC recognised this"
