Le Masurier Win ‘Business of the Year’

Le Masurier has been named Business of the Year; the most sought after accolade at the JeCC Awards. The local property development company was presented with the Condor Logistics Business of the Year Award at the annual ceremony at the Hotel De France on Saturday night. (22/9/2012)

The award looks at businesses as a whole, how they work with clients, the way they meet unexpected problems or tough challenges, their approach to health and safety, how they interact with the community and the way in which they work with and develop their staff.

The judges felt that Le Masurier demonstrated, “a deep and on-going engagement with the island’s community and took the responsibilities to their staff and their personal development very seriously.”

Brian McCarthy, Le Masurier’s Managing Director said: “’I am delighted that Le Masurier have won the Business of the Year Award. This is testimony to all of the hard work and effort of my team in wanting to make a significant impact on the future of our island. I would also wish to thank the Council and all of our professional advisors and consultants for their contribution in ensuring that our projects are of outstanding quality.”

Host for the evening, Channel Television’s Karen Rankine announced from the stage: “This year’s winner is a well-established local firm that’s made and continues to make a huge impact on the island. Strongly focused on Jersey and clearly committed to the Island, this company believes in working with community as it seeks to deliver its projects and invest significant sums into the Island’s economy. A company, which displays such confidence in the Island, is great news for the construction industry and this was an important factor in the judges’ decision. “

Le Masurier is investing more than 200 million pounds into two significant development projects in St Helier. J1 and Parkside Village demonstrate a commitment to the long-term future of the construction industry and the community.

Brian McCarthy, Le Masurier’s Managing Director said: “Getting to this stage of the process, for both projects, has required relentless determination by every member of staff, who have been ‘solution-focussed’ at every hurdle of the journey. I’m delighted that our dedicated team have been recognised in this way and awarded this honour by the JeCC. They have all demonstrated an un-wavering commitment to realise the vision of these two innovative and exciting development projects.”

Background information:

Le Masurier is a company of integrity with the community and our Island at its heart. Our goal is to be known for this and to be regarded in the highest esteem by Jersey’s community. The Group’s vision is to see St Helier transformed through the delivery of both the J1 project and the regeneration of a substantial part of the North of Town through Parkside Village. J1 has approved planning permission and a draft SPG for Parkside Village has been published by the Environment Minister.

These two projects will provide substantial economic stimulus to Jersey and direct local employment. Le Masurier believe that these two projects will leave a legacy for the Island and the Clarke family, having created vibrant, high quality sustainable accommodation for occupiers, whilst creating new spaces for the public to enjoy both now and for generations to come.
