The Best Managed Companies programme is a competition and seal of quality for successful medium-sized companies organised by Deloitte Private, Credit Suisse, the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung and the Federation of German Industries. The vision: to build a national and global ecosystem of excellently managed medium-sized companies. A key unique selling point of Best Managed Companies is its internationality: Best Managed Companies was launched by Deloitte in Canada in the 1990s and has since been successfully introduced in more than 40 countries.
“As a winner of the Best Managed Companies Award, Thimm has once again successfully demonstrated its outstanding corporate management. Thimm is thus not only a benchmark for the German SME sector, but at the same time stands for a strong as well as thoughtful economy in turbulent times,” explains Markus Seiz, Best Managed Company Programme Leader and Director at Deloitte Private. After a break of two years due to the pandemic, the festive award ceremony took place again as an event in Düsseldorf, where Holger Dunker and Kornelius Thimm accepted the award on behalf of the entire Thimm Group.
The winners of the award were previously evaluated and determined in a multi-stage application process based on the four award core areas of Strategy, Productivity and Innovation, Culture and Commitment as well as Governance and Finance. A company was only named Best Managed Company if it was able to demonstrate high performance in all four areas. The companies were evaluated by a jury of renowned representatives from business, academia and the media.
