The PS Group obtains the Deloitte award
EPS Group has been named Deloitte’s Best Managed Family Business of the Year at a special ceremony in Dublin last week. EPS was re-rated for the eighth year in a row, a very proud achievement in itself. Then came the special awards and the news that EPS had been named Best Family Business of the Year. This is only the second time this award has been given.
In addition to being reaffirmed as a Deloitte Best Managed Company for the eighth consecutive year, this award recognizes the growth and strength of EPS as they approach their 54th year in business.” As a family-owned company, we proudly operate a “big tent” approach, where all of our employees, their families and our stakeholders, suppliers and communities are part of our journey, said CEO Patrick Buckley. “We are all in this together and that helps us keep our feet on the ground.”
EPS has been part of the Deloitte BMC program since 2013, which provides the company with an annual benchmarking opportunity. “Being confirmed by Deloitte for the eighth year in a row is, in itself, a great honor, not to mention being named Family Business of the Year,” said Patrick.
