“We are indeed honoured to have been ranked 2nd in the Enterprise 50 Awards. Our journey with the awards started when P&N Holdings was ranked 11th in 2008 and 15th in 2009. Our improvement in the ranks is attributed to perseverance, discipline and also to my partners who share the same vision for the company. The diversification of our business into property management, property development, financial advisory and even in learning academy is leveraging on our expertise in the real estate industry. We hope our next phase of growth will be in overseas ventures and in time to come, our business will be public-listed”, commented Mr Mohamed Ismail, Chairman and CEO of P & N Holdings.
A winning business is more than just meeting the bottom line. It is about delivering quality, reliable service and adding value to the lives of our customers and the community. Led by the flagship subsidiary, PropNex Realty has been active in corporate social responsibility initiatives, in contributing back to the community. In 2009 and 2010, PropNex Realty built new schools in Kampal and Trayong Pong (Cambodia) respectively and introduced water filtration tanks for a total of 500 students. The company had channeled a total of $30,000 to the Singapore Children’s Society too. In 2011, PropNex raised $50,000 for Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF) with over 40 staff and salespersons. PropNex Realty also participated as marching contingent representing one of the pillars of Singapore’s Economic Defence at 2006 & 2011’s National Day Parade (NDP).
“P & N Holdings and its subsidiaries will not rest on its laurels. We strive to maintain our leading position as a trustworthy real estate company, while remembering those among us who are less fortunate. And we can only do that with the continued support of our dedicated staff and salespersons, as well as our customers, all of whom have contributed to our winning this award,” concluded Mr Ismail.
