Beddeleem named Best Managed Company 2023

Nazareth, 12 May 2023

Beddeleem has been recognised as a Best Managed Company 2023. Each year, the Best Managed Companies programme tests participants against a globally tested framework. It recognises private companies that translate a clear strategy, strong competences and commitment to the business into solid financial results. The independent jury recognised Beddeleem for the first time for its outstanding business performance and may carry the quality label for the next year.

This year, the Best Managed Companies programme is celebrating its sixth edition in Belgium, with Deloitte Private, Econopolis and KU Leuven going in search of high-performing private companies in the Belgian entrepreneurial landscape. Throughout the process, the companies are guided by a Best Managed Companies coach from Deloitte Private who challenged Beddeleem to reflect on its strategy, operational and financial processes. 

Koen De Block, co-CEO of Beddeleem: "It is an honour to receive this award. We see this as a recognition of the hard work of the last years. Not just the last 2/3 years, but the past 20/30 years, because that's how long it takes to reach the leadership position we hold today. Everyone knows that the construction industry is a highly competitive industry. Participating in the BMC programme will continue to challenge and motivate us to want to do better and better. And that should be the intention, because standing still is going backwards."

Jochen Daneels, co-CEO of Beddeleem: "We are proud of our label, the confirmation of a sustainable business operation to the highest standards. It underlines our constant resilience and our clear vision. For 30 years, we have been growing at an average annual rate of 5 per cent. That makes our expansion particularly sustainable."

Bruno Peelaers, Partner Deloitte Private and Best Managed Companies Programme Leader: "The 2023 Best Managed Companies laureates demonstrate innovation, adaptability and resilience facing a constantly changing context and market. Over the past year, these forward-thinking companies have focused on successfully responding to challenges and seizing new opportunities."
