ENG: Controlling Excellence Award 2024: Vetter Pharma-Fertigung, Österreichische Post and Robert Bosch are nominated

Award ceremony on April 29 as part of the 48th Congress of Controllers in Munich

The finalists in the competition for the ICV Controlling Excellence Award 2024 have been chosen. Vetter Pharma-Fertigung GmbH & Co.KG, Österreichische Post AG and Robert Bosch GmbH convinced the Jury with their submissions that they had found an exemplary controlling solution for their company. Head of the Jury Prof. Dr. Utz Schäffer reveals who wins the Award on April 29, 2024 at the award ceremony as part of the ICV Congress of Controllers in Munich.

The project of the Österreichische Post AG deals with an agile framework for the entire group controlling in order to be able to react better and faster to changing conditions. Vetter Pharma has set out to operationalize the Vetter Finance Strategy 2025 using the example of integrated corporate management. The aim is to further develop towards a holistic strategic and operational management concept based on fully integrated and automated data. At Robert Bosch, employees in the myGreenBusiness department dedicated themselves to an IT-based approach to digitizing EU taxonomy reporting as part of the submitted project.

The winner of the ICV Controlling Excellence Award 2024 will traditionally present their project at the ICV Congress of Controllers and thus show the participants their excellent best practice solution from which they can also benefit in their own everyday professional life. This practical approach will once again be present at the renowned congress, which takes place on April 29/30 for the 48th time under the leadership of the International Association of Controllers, this time under the motto “Business Performance through Controlling Intelligence – digital, sustainable, profitable”.

Over two days, the largest specialist meeting of the controlling community in Europe relies on the tried and tested mix of lectures, topic clusters and free space for discussions with speakers, colleagues and experts from the corporate management environment. The upcoming congress provides insights into the latest developments in the use of AI in controlling and also focuses on the topics of sustainability, sustainability reporting and strategies for dealing with geopolitical tensions and Europe's dependence.

The face-to-face meeting in Munich is a unique opportunity during the year to get comprehensively and in-depth up to date on controlling and corporate management over two days. Top-class topics and speakers as well as interested participants from practice and teaching contribute their part. With its 6,000 members and around 250 corporate members across Europe, it is important to the ICV as an organizer that everyone interested in controlling can meet centrally in a large group once a year in Munich and exchange ideas in person, in addition to the regional meetings and online offerings offered all year round - in beautiful ambience of the congress hotel The Westin Grand as well as two days of good care and perfect professional support from the experienced ICV organization team.

The Congress of Controllers, which is also open to non-members, offers, in addition to the breaks during the day's program, the Happy Hour and the Controllers’ Beer Garden with plenty of space and time to talk to old acquaintances and new faces and thus the chance to network to strengthen sustainably.
