Consultant picks up PFM award for Partners in Business category

Consultant EC Harris has won an award at this year’s PFM Awards in the Partners in Business category.

The judges at the annual event, which was held at The Brewery in London on 6 November, said they were impressed with how the international consultancy had used a move to its new headquarters in Kings Cross last year as a catalyst to improve services to clients and the development of its people.

Philip Youell, chief executive of EC Harris, said: “We wanted to create an international headquarters where clients and people from our 45 offices worldwide can access knowledge and technology early and with style.

“The bank philosophy is to create and share knowledge and encourage people to come together in teams.

“We worked with our own business change and workspace consultancy teams, Swanke Hayden Connell and Mitel combining creative change methodology, great design and technology behind a clear vision."

This is EC Harris’ second consecutive award at the PFM Awards and follows last year’s success in picking up a partnership award for managing HM Court Services London estate.
