Each of the victors were presented with a certificate and a bottle of champagne by a member of Abbey’s senior management team in recognition of their achievements.

Lee Stoddard, winner of the Best Centre Manager award, was thrilled to accept her award “Whilst I personally feel a great sense of pride in winning this award, credit must also go to the rest of my centre team who try their hardest to deliver excellent customer service to our clients every day.”

Managing Director Julie Calder was elated with the feedback received during the nomination process “I could not be more delighted with this year’s results. Over 200 votes cast supports my belief that we offer the best customer service in the serviced office industry and we continue to push for further excellence.”

Ms Calder’s bold statement about Abbey’s customer service does have some backing considering the following nominations were just a small number of the ones received by clients:

“Abbey’s centre team in London Victoria has both an excellent spirit amongst them and a great rapport with their clients. I believe this is down to the Centre Manager who manages her team wonderfully and also has a tremendous working relationship with her BDM. The Centre Manager’s willingness to step in and solve problems is evidence of her abilities and her passion for the company”

“Gillian Findlay has worked extremely hard in ensuring all of our requirements have been met during a very demanding time for our business. Her commitment, energy and overall level of Customer Service have been excellent.”

“Lorraine Scott is always very accommodating and has a 'nothing is too much trouble' attitude which helps to make your Edinburgh business centre a welcoming place to visit.”
