It's time to enter the PFM Awards, particularly as we have three new categories this year. Of particular interest is Account Director of the Year Award, which is an award for a senior account director from an outsourced service provider organisation who has demonstrated exceptional qualities in partnering to further the effectiveness and efficiency of the client/s facilities and property operations that support its business and activities.

The other categories are:

Entrants should demonstrate how the partnership is strategically aligned with the client’s business needs and reflected through the supply chain to effectively deliver a broad range of services.

Partners in Retail
This new category recognises the growing role of service providers working in partnership with retailers for a varied range of support services in shopping centres, retail parks, the high street, transport hubs and airports, and in logistics and warehouse facilities.
