Our very own Gary Mitchell took an active role in the Women in Property, South Wales Branch regional Student Awards for 2016.
Local student Claire Miles, studying Foundation Degree in Sustainable Construction and Surveying at Coleg Y Cymoedd, University of South Wales came top in the South Wales Region competition which was sponsored by Cambria Consulting, Gleeds and the RICS. In addition to Claire there were five other regional finalists, all of whom were nominated by their Universities. They were invited to go before a judging panel of industry experts, where they were questioned on a piece of coursework and topical industry issues. As well Gary, the regional judging panel included representatives from different industry disciplines, including Leigh Hughes, regional MD Bouygues, Jonathon Smart, Associate Director Residential Agency & Valuation, Cushman & Wakefield and Mandy St John Davey, Property Developer and Chairman of Women in Property South Wales.
The award ceremony, followed by afternoon tea was held in the Millennium Centre, Cardiff Bay on 1st June and Claire received a cheque for £300 and a trophy.
