Congratulations to FMANZ's Award Winners!

Congratulations to all the winners announced at FMANZ's Gala Awards Dinner, held in Auckland on 23 May. The Brian Happy Award for Facilities Manager of the Year was presented to Phoenix Lavin, the Design & Construction Interface & Transition Manager with Programmed Facility Management in Wellington.

This award recognises the outstanding performance by an individual working in the FM profession – someone who has applied their experience and knowledge to produce exceptional results within their facility, as well as demonstrating excellent personal qualities. In her role at Programmed, Phoenix drives complex facilities management transitions for public and private partnerships, such as New Zealand’s Schools PPP II project.

Ashlee Jepson took away the Young Achiever of the Year Award at the dinner, held during FMANZ's two-day Summit. A Facilities Manager with Precinct Properties in Wellington, Ashlee manages 60,000sqm of A-Grade office space within three high-rise office towers and is accountable for a portfolio worth $330 million. FMANZ’s Young Achiever of the Year Award recognises an FM professional under 35 years of age who has shown a strong and ongoing commitment to their personal development and that of the wider industry.

Argus Fire Protection won FMANZ’s inaugural Service Provider of the Year award, introduced this year to acknowledge outstanding provision of contracted-out facilities management services.

Congratulations also to our hard-working and dedicated Service Award winners. Veronika Harrison and Vince Morgan both received a Branch Service Award; David Curry and Anthony van Meer, a National Service Award; and Jack Crutzen, a National Distinguished Service Award.
