Macro wins at the Middle East FM Awards

Macro, the facilities management arm of Mace, has taken home two trophies at the 2018 Middle East Facilities Management Awards.

The first, for FM Manager of the Year, was given to Macro’s Orla Phillips, who is the Middle East regional account manager for a Macro client, a leading global banking and financial services company. 

Orla was singled-out by the judges, not only for her technical enhancements at client sites, but her management skills as well. It was noted that Orla has also taken a leading role in Macro’s corporate social responsibility work in the region.

As well as winning FM Manager of the Year, Macro was also highly commended for the FM Consultancy of the Year award. The judges noted particularly Macro’s rich international pool of subject matter experts.

Macro was a gold sponsor of the event held in at the Waldorf Astoria in Dubai, where the best of the FM industry within the Middle East was showcased. This is the ninth year Macro has received recognition in at least one category at the awards, which is now in its 11th year. 

Orla Phillips, Macro Regional Account Manager, said: 

“It was such a fantastic honour to be shortlisted, let alone win. It’s all down to the support and faith everyone in Macro had in me. I was very proud taking my award home and even more proud to be a member of the Macro team.”

Chris Bond, Macro Head of Consultancy for MENAP said: 

“I am delighted to accept the Highly Commended award on behalf of the Middle East FM Consultancy Team. It is a testament to the hard work and client focus of our Consultants, and recognition of our track record across multiple sectors. I look forward to building on this industry recognition by continuing to develop our capabilities, opportunities and regional reach.”

Mark Graham, Macro Managing Director for MENAP, said:

"It was great to for us receive recognition from the industry in the Middle East. It makes me extremely proud that Macro was highly commended for FM Consultant of the Year, once again right up there with the brightest and the best. I’m also especially happy that Orla was personally recognised as Facilities Manager of the year for the fantastic work that she has been doing on the SCB account. We have a wonderful team here and this helps motivate us to continue to pursue a better way."
