  • Demonstrating stellar performance as a leader in a host of industries, Sunway shines as the only Malaysian conglomerate to bag Malaysia’s Best Managed Companies 2021 by global consulting firm Deloitte.

At the recent Deloitte’s Best Managed Companies 2021 inaugural edition in Malaysia, Sunway Group joined 1,000 companies that have achieved this mark of business excellence globally.

With the awarded companies lauded for their excellence and contribution in their respective industries, the judging panel selected Sunway for its strong brand management, progressive corporate strategy and speed of growth.

Sunway acknowledges the fact that we now live in a time where disruption is becoming a growing challenge that impacts major aspects of an organisation. Therefore, as an organisation that has survived major economic crises, we need to remain resilient, be agile and swift enough to transform as well as to adapt to changing times.

A Tight Race in the Marketplace

First established in 1993, Deloitte’s Best Managed Companies awards event is hosted across more than 37 countries globally. It recognises top privately-owned local companies with annual revenues exceeding US$25 million and serves as a way for companies to benchmark themselves against the best private companies in the world.

Companies eligible for this award have to undergo a rigorous and independent assessment across the 1,000-strong community of best-managed private companies worldwide.

Some recurring aspects among winners were an increasing focus on leadership, diversity and inclusion, and digital transformation to allow efficiency and a more significant contribution to community service.

Sunway Group was assessed based on the quality of management in areas like strategy, capabilities and innovation, culture and commitment, as well as governance and financials.
