The IAM Awards 2014 winners were announced on 27th November, during the Annual Dinner on the evening of day one of the Asset Management Conference, at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel, London. During the evening, Richard Edwards took the opportunity to award three individuals with President's Award, recognising their hard work and commitment to the IAM.
- For exceptional service in establishing an IAM focus on asset information and collaborating with partners
For some years, Julian has made his expert knowledge and skills available to the IAM in a modest and understated way. In producing the Asset Information Guidelines in 2009 he made a substantial and pioneering document available both to the IAM and the profession. The Board and Faculty are very much indebted and grateful to Julian for giving his time and energy to many examples of technical collaboration and especially, most recently, for helping the IAM influence BIM and related domains of data and information.
- For exceptional service as a council member and IAM representative
In addition to representing the IAM’s Individual Members on Council, Clive has contributed in a variety of ways to developing the IAM and its influence on the profession, not least in helping grow awareness of asset management within general and engineering management circles in a variety of countries. His diverse contributions include better governance mechanisms such as the membership survey and initiating the new Achievement Awards. The Council and Board are very grateful to Clive for his outstanding service over a sustained period.
- For exceptional service as chair of NxtGen

In addition to representing the Next Generation of asset managers at Council, Danielle has enthusiastically motivated and led NxtGen and NxtGenPlus. NxtGen is now growing and mobilising large numbers of people new to the discipline, particularly those in the earlier part of their career.
This work has been reflected around the world and significantly supports the formation of Chapters where they are emerging. The Council and Board of the IAM are very grateful to Danielle and applaud her outstanding energy and focus in achieving these results.
- For exceptional service as Secretary of ISO / PC251
In addition to the normal duties of the Secretariat, Charles gave freely of his advice and experience to guide the chair and members of PC251. He went the ‘extra mile’ to understand the subtleties and significance of Asset Management and help ensure they were embedded in the final documents. In doing so he brought the international community closer together and the IAM wishes to recognise his contribution to our successful transition from PAS55.
