Held for the first time in 2018, the Italian Deloitte Best Managed Company Awards were founded to recognise exceptional Italian companies that have distinguished themselves for strategy, skills, commitment to people, excellence, and performance. It was a proud occasion when Deloitte awarded Sanlorenzo with ‘Best Managed Company’ at the 2019 awards ceremony, bestowing this accolade on the yard for the second year running.
As a major international player, thanks to its business model and many innovations, Sanlorenzo won this award due to a winning strategy that has seen it experience significant growth over the last decade; positioning itself as the top of production world of yachts and superyachts. The success of the company is due, in large part, to the role and vision of Mr Massimo Perotti, Chairman of Sanlorenzo. Since 2005 Perotti has guided the company with passion, determination and entrepreneurial vision, enhancing the company’s know-how and artisan traditions and introducing very important innovations that have allowed Sanlorenzo to stand out in and profoundly change the field of yachting.
Andrea Restelli, Deloitte Partner in charge of the Italian Best Managed Company Awards declares – “Best Managed Companies is not just an award, but also a growth program for companies, which also gave them (Sanlorenzo) the opportunity to be supported by Deloitte and its experts during their candidacy process and self-assessment on critical success factors this year. These included corporate strategy, skills and innovation, corporate culture and commitment, governance, and financial performance, internationalisation and CSR – with the aim of being able to compare themselves with players at an international level in a constantly changing business environment.”
The receipt of this award for the second year running has proven Sanlorenzo’s outstanding brand name and business model. It has also strengthened the credibility of the Sanlorenzo name in the field of building high-quality motor yachts that are designed and made to measure as per customers wishes.
