Since starting operations in 1980, Azad and his company have won numerous accolades for their commitment to sustainable accommodation, green issues and staff training and development. ‘Our longevity in the sector enables us to provide continuity to our tenants, landlords and staff, whilst continuing to provide sustainable services’ says Azad.
‘Some of our property maintenance professionals are second generation employees, meaning we share a common purpose and values.’
‘Those values are to provide good services to everybody at affordable prices, which means maintaining our properties to a very high standard in the most sustainable way possible,’ adds Azad, who also directly supports education and poverty alleviation projects at home and abroad and actively campaigns for promotion of sustainability within business operations, supporting organizations such as Able Child Africa, The Citizen’s Foundation, Lord Mayor’s Appeal Charity, Television for the Environment and many others.
Azad has always had a strong passion for civil engineering and property development. An investor, entrepreneur with an international civil engineering background and founder of a multi-national award-winning property management and development company, Azad is now focusing on helping companies drive efficiencies in their business and design systems that will lead to better productivity and help develop talent. He delivers this via non-executive board positions as well as through different chambers of commerce. Azad is also interested in sharing his expertise at local and national government level.
Azad enjoys staying in shape and actively follows all major sport. ‘I religiously believe in the words that ‘physical fitness is not only important for a healthy body but it also forms the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity’, says Azad.
