I4F, a group of companies providing patents and technologies to the flooring industry, today announced that it has, for a second consecutive year, been awarded as one of the 2021/22 Best Managed Companies (BMC) by Deloitte.

The annual BMC program aims to find the best managed, privately owned companies and evaluates a company’s management capabilities and practices as well as recognizes overall business performance and growth. As a result, i4F remains a part of the global BMC community, hosted by Deloitte, and is invited to participate in international assemblies on a wide range of key business areas.

“It is an honor to again be awarded as a Best Managed Company," said  i4F CEO John Rietveldt. "Of course, we also hope to remain the annual title holder of the BMC Excellence Award for Strategy! Our motivated teams are in touch with the latest and greatest technologies and we firmly believe that i4F’s global IP strategy and business model are unique because they can be replicated in many other industries, and contribute to the greater good.”

The company has also been nominated for the 2021/22 Excellence Award for Strategy, judged by a panel of prominent leaders representing a variety of industries. The company won last year. The winner of this year’s Excellence Award for Strategy will be revealed on June 21, 2022, at a ceremony being held in The Netherlands, during which other BMC winners will also receive recognition awards.

i4F received a 2021/22 Best Managed Companies award as a tier one player demonstrating a number of best management abilities and practices. This included strategy, culture and commitment, capabilities and innovation as well as finance and ESG compared to peers.
