GLADWIN NEW CHAIRMAN OF THE JUDGES


of the Judges for the prestigious BIFM Awards. Gladwin will succeed Oliver Jones (Chairman of the Judges since 2009) who sees his four-year term as Chairman of the Judges come to an end after the 2013 BIFM Awards Ceremony on 14th October.


The Chairman of the Judges role includes the vital annual assessment of award category and criteria, making sure categories are relevant and reflect changes in the FM sector.


The British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM) has appointed Steve Gladwin as the new Chairman


Speaking on his time as Chairman of the Judges, Oliver Jones, said: "My four years as Chairman of the BIFM Awards have flown by and have been both educational and highly enjoyable. On commencement, I set a goal with the judging teams of making real progress by inspiring the top-performing organisations in FM to stand up and be recognised under increasingly rigorous judging and assessment conditions. I am delighted that we managed to break new ground in these respects each year.”

NEWS IN BRIEF


‘Activated’ water in the dock The advertising claims by Tennant regarding its ec-H2O technology have been pronounced misleading by a court in Stuttgart. One of the manufacturer’s claims had been that scrubber driers equipped with this technology used water which was electrically ‘activated’ and were able to dispense with the use of chemical cleaning agents to clean floors. The ruling found activated water to be no more effective than tap water. Tennant may still appeal against the ruling.
