The Group was also an ‘Honoured Company’ in all four individual award categories in II Magazine’s 2016 awards.
II Magazine issues an annual ranking of Europe’s leading Executive Teams based on the views of investment professionals. There are four individual categories including: ‘Best CEO’, ‘Best CFO’, ‘Best IR Professional’ and ‘Best IR Company’. A business that earns a top-three position in one of the four categories is deemed an ‘Honoured Company’. Smurfit Kappa was honoured in all four categories and was the top ranked company in two of those four. As a consequence of its high ranking in all categories, Smurfit Kappa was ranked as the number 1 company in the European Paper & Packaging Sector and one of the top 20 companies in Europe.
Tony Smurfit, Group CEO Smurfit Kappa, and ranked as the best CEO in the European Paper & Packaging Sector, commented:
“I am delighted that the Group has again been recognised by Institutional Investor Magazine. Our position as the leading company in the sector and an honoured company in all four award categories reflects consistent delivery on our stated strategy by our team. It also reflects our commitment to be a globally recognised and respected business delivering market leading innovation for our customers and value for our shareholders.”
