Basler Wins Axia Best Managed Companies Award Again
World-class management! This was once again the verdict of the expert jury for the Axia Best Managed Companies Award on Basler AG this year. After 2020, we were honored for the second time in a row for outstanding corporate management and successful economic development. With the award, the management consultancy Deloitte--together with the magazine WirtschaftsWoche as well as the German Industry Association (Verband der Deutschen Industrie e.V.) and Credit Suisse--honor management excellence and prosperity among medium-sized companies in Germany. The competition is held in parallel in over 30 countries worldwide.
Our Executive Board as well as the company's founder and current Chairman of the Supervisory Board Norbert Basler accepted the winner's trophy together. Our CEO Dietmar Ley shared his elation at the award: "We are very proud to receive the award for the second time in a row, especially after a year with major pandemic-related challenges. The award is an incentive for us to continue to develop the company so that we can continue our success."
With the award, a jury of industry experts honored Basler and several others as outstanding, particularly versatile and strongly globally oriented companies that exemplify the courage and innovative strength of the German economy. The companies were evaluated in the areas of Strategy, Productivity & Innovation, Culture & Commitment and Governance & Finance. The top-rated contestants demonstrated entrepreneurial excellence in all four areas.
"From the development of forward-looking strategies and innovative processes, to effective corporate governance structures and a healthy corporate culture: like all Axia Best Managed Companies Award winners, Basler stands out for entrepreneurial excellence and once again sets standards in all key areas of corporate governance," explains Lutz Meyer, Partner and Head of Deloitte Private.
