UK’s top managing agents recognised

The winners of the annual ARMA (the Association of Residential Managing Agents) ACE Awards were revealed at a glittering ceremony at Tobacco Dock in London’s east end on Friday (5th July 2019). Attended by 500 property professionals, the Awards celebrate excellence and exceptional achievement by the UK's leading residential managing agents, their suppliers and the work of their people in improving the lives of over a million leaseholders across the country.
The 18 winners were announced following a rigorous adjudicating process by a panel of independent judges. Tobacco Dock provided a stunning backdrop to a fun-packed evening of live music, fine dining and exciting entertainment.
Dr Nigel Glen, ARMA CEO, said: “The winners are a real credit to the industry and I know what a hard job the judges had in deciding who should go home with a trophy from so many outstanding finalists. The winning firms and team members are setting the standard for companies that wish to be recognised for achieving excellence and best practice in their field.”
Dementia UK, which provides specialist dementia support for families through its Admiral Nurse service, was ARMA’s charity partner this year and a magnificent sum of £3,467.00 was raised for the cause. Dementia UK’s nurses work alongside people with dementia and their families, giving them the one-to-one support, expert guidance and practical solutions they need, and that can be hard to find elsewhere.
Demi Bevis-Roadnight, Regional Fundraising Executive at Dementia UK, said: “We’d like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to ARMA for choosing to support us at their fantastic awards ceremony this year. The funds raised will give many families facing dementia the precious care of a specialist dementia nurse – often when they are at breaking point and feel they have nowhere else to turn. We just can’t thank you enough for everything you have done.”
