Leading business advisory firm Grant Thornton has been announced as the new Associate Sponsor of the Belfast Telegraph Top 100 Companies, the must-read guide to Northern Ireland’s most profitable businesses.
Regarded as the most comprehensive company league table in Northern Ireland, the Belfast Telegraph Top 100 is the foremost guide of its type.
Richard Gillan, Managing Partner at Grant Thornton Northern Ireland, said:
“We are all acutely aware that the COVID-19 pandemic has presented difficulties for many businesses, the wider economy and indeed society as a whole. It has certainly been a busy period for us, helping our clients navigate the pandemic situation.
“Working across all sectors, we advise a vast range of business from family-owned enterprises to large multinationals, counting many perennial Top 100 companies as clients.
“So we are delighted to partner with the Belfast Telegraph as Associate Sponsor of the Top 100 Companies, as it provides a welcome opportunity to take a step back and reflect on the recent successes enjoyed by Northern Ireland’s highest-performing businesses.
“I am confident that, when this year’s edition of the Top 100 guide is published, it will not tell a story of a struggling economy but will instead reflect the resilience and perseverance of a business community bouncing back despite numerous challenges.”
Providing an insight into the resilience, innovation and excellence in leadership that allows businesses to thrive, the Top 100 guide will feature organisations representing a wide spectrum of sectors and every region of Northern Ireland.
Eoin Brannigan, Editor in Chief of Belfast Telegraph and Sunday Life, said:
“We are delighted to have the support of top business advisory firm Grant Thornton for our flagship Top 100 Companies publication.
“Grant Thornton’s sponsorship adds to the prestige of the annual Top 100 Companies, and we regard it as a highly fitting partnership.
“The Top 100 magazine will highlight Northern Ireland’s star companies, from agri-food to technology, pharmaceuticals and financial services.
“Its publication online and in print is always eagerly awaited in the business community and beyond. We look forward to working with Richard and his team.”
The Belfast Telegraph Top 100 Companies 2021 in association with Grant Thornton will be published on Tuesday 23 November.
With over 1,500 people in seven offices across Ireland, and 56,000 globally, Grant Thornton is located in over 143 countries around the world.
