PFM Awards 2013

Both of our submissions progressed through to the final stages of the awards and hence were both potential category winners at the presentation night and dinner at The Brewery in London’s Chiswell Street on 6th November. We were joined by client representatives of Top Right Group in the form of Jonathan Blanks and Liverpool Football Club who fielded Ian Barker and Chris Grady.

We had high hopes for both entries and our table of highly excited staff included Jessica Strawbridge, Annie Karastoyanova, John Garrard, Bill Pollard, Martin Reed, Bruce McDonnell and Jeremy Waud.

Our high spirits and much effort in the submission documents were rewarded with a win for our team together with Top Right Group in the Partners in Workplace Change category award. The judges reviewed the move management of the four key component businesses from within Top Right Group to the new homes away from the old EMAP building of Greater London House near Euston. Top Right Group and two of its media businesses moved to two separate areas of a building in Air Street near Regent Street. i2i moved west to a building in Paddington Basin, whilst Emap moved to Telephone House near Old Street north of the City. In total 1,200 staff were moved in a condensed period of time to just under 100,000 square feet of new office space.

We were delighted to add another trophy to our bulging awards shelf – this is now our third PFM award, the others being in 2009 and 2011.

Congratulations to all involved.
