Southwire is proud to announce it has been selected as a 2022 US Best Managed Company. Sponsored by Deloitte Private and The Wall Street Journal, the program recognizes outstanding U.S. private companies and the achievements of their management teams.  

The 2022 designees are U.S. private companies that have demonstrated excellence in strategic planning and execution, a commitment to their people, strong financial performance and the ability to foster a dynamic, resilient culture. 

This year’s designees continued to propel their businesses forward by prioritizing purpose, investing in their workforces and demonstrating their commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. 

“Receiving this recognition three years in a row is a testament to the resiliency and dedication of our employees,” said Rich Stinson, Southwire’s president and CEO. “We continue to focus on trust, empowerment, consistency and inclusion, and these commitments have undoubtedly brought us to where we are today and contributed to this tremendous honor. We are committed to remain generationally sustainable for the next 100 years and beyond, and this is a testament to those efforts." 

Applicants are evaluated and selected by a panel of external judges focused on assessing hallmarks of excellence in four key areas: strategy, ability to execute, corporate culture and governance/financial performance. Award recipients join a global ecosystem of honorees from more than 40 countries recognized by the Best Managed Companies program. 

“We are proud to be among the 51 companies chosen to receive this award,” said Norman Adkins, president of Wire and Cable and COO. “Being a US Best Managed Company is an achievement that our entire organization can celebrate, and we are thankful for everything that our hard-working and dedicated employees have done throughout the years to help make this possible.”
