Deloitte Private Matters 

March 2019 

This month, we profile the common traits of this year's Deloitte Best Managed Companies winners and present the key takeaways from the latest US M&A trends report, relevant to Irish businesses. In addition, we have insights on managing  cyber risk and take a look at why Irish companies need to become even more customer-centric.

At Deloitte Private, we understand that establishing, maintaining and growing a business in today’s challenging environment presents a wide range of complex issues. Deloitte Private focuses on the priorities of private and private-equity backed companies, family businesses and individuals in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
