On Wednesday 4th November, The Propertyserve team got suited and booted to attend the Premises and Facilities Management Awards with our trusted client, Cushman and Wakefield in tow.
We had entered the Partners in Expert Services Award along with Cushman. Whilst we came in runners up of the category, we didn’t – sadly – go on to win it.
BUT, we did have some great news to bring back to the office the next day! Lawrence Green, who has worked at Propertyserve UK for two years, and who manages the five-strong Cushman and Wakefield helpdesk team, did go on to win the Partnership Individual Team Member Award – for his great work in supporting and progressing the Cushman and Wakefield account. We are suitably proud of him.
Lawrence came top of a field of 35-40 other nominees put forward by their respective companies. He was asked to present to two judges back at the end of the summer, to talk through his work with Cushman and Wakefield – to talk about the importance of his role, how he leads his team (which has more than doubled in size in the last year), and how he communicates and supports the Cushman and Wakefield team.
Lawrence comments: “Our job is all about creating solutions, and I really feel it is the responsibility of the whole team to ensure this happens.
“We help to support the management of upwards of 300 properties, and the team at Cushman and Wakefield have come to rely on us. It’s all about the attitude towards the work, and creating a strong team around you. We can then turn stressful situations into problems solved.
“I am thrilled to have won this award on behalf of Propertyserve, but I must have looked like a rabbit in headlights when Fiona Bruce (news presenter) called me back onto the stage to make a speech about my win! I wasn’t expecting that.”
