On 3 September 2019, Andy Lim, managing director of Ocean IFM Pte Ltd received the “SINGAPORE PRESTIGE BRAND AWARD 2019 - ESTABLISHED BRAND" Award, a much-coveted accolade with an 18-year history and highly respected in the business fraternity. This comes after the win of Singapore SME 100 Award – Fast Moving Companies earlier in May this year. Together, these wins make us the first local Managing Agent to hold two of the most prestigious honours in the same year.

SINGAPORE PRESTIGE BRAND AWARDS (SPBA) is an initiative by the Association of Small & Medium Enterprises (ASME) and the local Chinese Daily LIANHE ZAOBAO that promotes and showcases business luminaries in Singapore who stay on the forefront of branding. Their vision is to showcase business leaders at different stages of their branding journey and the achievement of new milestone in branding excellence.

This achievement is not possible without our employees. 21 employees, from various divisions were invited to attend the Gala Dinner & Award Presentation Ceremony held on 3 November 2019 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel where Ocean IFM was presented with a trophy by Mr Ng Chee Meng (Minister & Member of Parliament). It was indeed a star-studded Sunday evening to remember and celebrate; before we are back on our toes to provide the promised personalised service the next day!
