A young company director from Liverpool has won the ‘UK Young Surveyor of the Year’ title, beating tough competition at the 2016 RICS Matrics Young Surveyor of the Year Awards, held in London.
Matthew Fedigan, 29, Director at Domec Ltd in Liverpool took the overall top title as well as the award for the most talented surveyor in the Asset & Facilities Management category at the annual awards.
Five years ago Matthew was one of two founding Directors of Domec Ltd; a multi-disciplinary facilities services provider. The business has grown rapidly and Matthew also helped build the team from two to 30 with a turnover approaching £3 million.
Co-founder of Domec Ltd and Managing Director, Dominic Evans; who nominated him for the award – said, “Matthew and I created Domec together, based on a shared frustration with overly bureaucratic and impersonal facilities services provision. Matthew’s drive and entrepreneurial talent really led the charge to push on with our dream of starting a successful business.”
RICS judges were particularly impressed with Matthew’s continual development of the company, including currently working on the acquisition of a consultancy business.
Matt Howell, RICS Managing Director, UK & Ireland said, “Matthew’s leadership abilities and entrepreneurial talent far exceed expectation for someone still so early into their career, making him a credit to his team, clients and an ambassador for the wider property profession, which is what these awards are all about.”
