The person behind the exceptional growth of a “hidden jewel” in Fenland won the Business Person of the Year award.
David Haynes joined Foster Property Maintenance, of Wisbech, in July 2010 as commercial manager but was quickly promoted to director when the board saw how valuable an asset he was to the business.
David has far exceeded expectations and it is by no means a coincidence that the business has grown substantially since he joined the company.
The judges said: “Foster Property Maintenance is a company which has shown exceptional growth in the last three years.
“The Judges considered the company to be a hidden jewel. They work for regulated social landlords who are extremely costs conscious and require a holistic approach towards their tenants and FPM delivers.
“They have grown through a large number of contract wins and have delivered upon their promise.
“The person responsible for such exceptional growth and profitability is David Haynes, whose approach led the judges to question whether he should write his own Haynes manual!”
