Best Managed Companies

About the awards and benefits for applicants and winners

What is Best Managed Companies?

Best Managed Companies is an awards program recognising privately held companies for their organisational success and achievement. The program provides a distinct framework for management teams to challenge themselves and benchmark against some of the best private companies in the world.

Best Managed winners are recognised at an awards ceremony and invited to a regional symposium where they can network with other outstanding private sector leaders and hear from business educators and industry professionals specialising in private enterprise.

The Best Managed Companies program was established in 1993 in Canada and has become the most significant business awards of its kind. The program is active in 48 countries in the Americas, Europe and Australasia and is launching across Africa.

We’re celebrating the hard work, passion, and pioneering ideas that emanate from family business and privately-held companies across the island. Will you be one of Singapore’s Best Managed companies?
