While introducing the award, Peter Bamkole, Director, Enterprise Development Centre at the Pan Atlantic University, noted that the category was the most coveted prize of the event, given the strategic dependence of the real estate industry on the support services sub-sector.
According to him, “This category is the most important award of the evening, as it supplies the life fuel that powers the real estate sector; without it, there will be no real estate industry. Therefore, the winner is considered to have made the most contribution to the development and sustenance of the real estate sector in Nigeria by providing best standards and reliable professional support services to the industry.”
In his acceptance speech, Engr. Femi Akintunde, Managing Director, Alpha Mead Facilities, thanked the organisers and industry stakeholders for the honour, noting that it would re-inforce the company’s commitment to promoting best-in-class standards for the industry in Nigeria.
Speaking further, Engr. Akintunde dedicated the Award to, “all the staff of AMFacilities, whose selfless dedication to quality service and excellent customer satisfaction have brought us this honour.” He assured that the industry trust in the company would be taken with all seriousness to ensure that it grows deeper and deeper year on year.
