PMAS DINNER AND AWARDS 2022
Oh what a night! We were delighted to be lead sponsors of this year’s PMAS Dinner and inaugural Excellence Awards. Held at the Central Hotel Glasgow, it was fantastic to be in a room together celebrating the achievements of everyone in the industry. Guests were dressed to impress and ready to be entertained by the evening’s host, Des Clarke who was very funny indeed and did a great job of introducing all of the speakers, including Nic Mayall, our own Crawford Burns, and a representative from the Beatson Cancer Charity.
We’d like to take the opportunity to congratulate all of the winners of the awards, who were:
Property Manager of the Year – Paula Robertson, Trinity Factors. We caught up with Paula on the Blocktalk Podcast (episode 22) and you can listen to the full episode here

Support Staff Member of the Year – Kasia Staniek, PMC Property Management & Lettings
Contractor of the Year – Gerry Bonar of Cleansweep Contract Cleaning Services
