MU has received the Sweden’s Best Managed Companies recognition

By Sofia Hjort Lönegård

We are very proud to share that MU has received the Sweden’s Best Managed Companies recognition, sponsored by Deloitte in cooperation with Nasdaq.

Firstly, I would like to say how proud I am of the work of our leaders all around the globe, which is the main reason we are receiving this award today

- says Richard Moore, CEO MU.

I believe that a big part of our success is that MU is an inclusive workplace, with equal opportunities, and when working here, you are part of a diverse expert team that partners up all around the world.

What is quite unusual in our business is that our company is owned by an independent foundation – Stiftelsen Mercuri Urval – with the sole purpose to ensure we are sustainable and deliver successful results for colleagues and clients until the end of time.

Because it’s important work that our experts do - ensuing clients get more reliable advice about leadership so they improve results and their people succeed at work – and I appreciate their hard effort. Also, thanks to our clients worldwide for their loyalty and trust which is enabling us to improve and grow; Richard Moore continues.

And last but not least, a thank you to Deloitte for the nomination and Nasdaq, Deloitte, and the jury for the award. This recognition inspires us to do even better for our colleagues, clients, and stakeholders. 

Best Managed Companies is a quality award recognising the overall success of private Swedish companies based on strategic direction, ability to execute, corporate culture, and financial performance. Best Managed Companies was established in Canada in 1993 and has since then been introduced in more than 20 countries around the world. Sweden’s Best Managed Companies was launched in 2018 by Deloitte in cooperation with Nasdaq. This is the fourth year of the award. An independent jury has selected the 20 companies that received this year's award.

– We are proud to hand out the recognition Sweden´s Best Managed Companies for the fourth year in a row. This year’s companies have shown stability through a pandemic, while at the same time continuing to develop their operation. I am happy to congratulate our Best Managed Companies and look forward to celebrating with them, says Therese Kjellberg, partner at Deloitte and responsible for Best Managed Companies in Sweden.

– This award recognizes companies who demonstrate exceptional leadership and commitment to driving profitable growth. They have a deliberate approach to build strong teams and invest in the future development of their talent, says Maria Groschopp Dellwik, responsible strategy and business development at Nasdaq Global Listings in Stockholm
