Staff at Surrey based Cleankill Pest Control are celebrating after the company won its first national award.
Cleankill clinched the Service Provider of the Year category of ARMA’s (Association of Residential Managing Agents) inaugural ACE Awards. The awards ceremony, which was held at Tobacco Dock in London’s east end, was attended by 450 industry professionals. The awards were introduced to 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.
Cleankill Managing Director Paul Bates said: “We have been shortlisted for many national awards such as Investors in People and the British Institute of Facilities Management but it is the first time we have won one so we are absolutely thrilled. We already work with many ARMA members and taking part in this award scheme and winning means we will now be known by many more.”
Dr Nigel Glen, ARMA CEO, said: “The winners are a 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 entries. 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.”
Henry Ellinger-Gane, Centrepoint’s Senior Corporate Development Officer, said: “We were delighted to be ARMA’s charity partner for the evening and with the £2,500 raised, which will go towards the work we do. It’s heartening to note that managing agents recognise the difficulties that young homeless people face and are prepared to put their hands in their pockets to help the work of Centrepoint.
In addition to winning the category for Service Provider of the Year, Cleankill also sponsored the category for Customer Service Award, won by Rendall and Rittner.
