We were delighted to hear the news that Ann Allen, Executive Director of Estates and Commercial Services at the University of Glasgow, an HEDQF Founder Member, was awarded the MBE in the Queen’s New Year Honours List, for services to higher education.
Ann Allen joined the University of Glasgow in 2012. On hearing of the award she said: “I am both surprised and humbled by this award. I believe what we are achieving at University of Glasgow’s Gilmorehill campus is truly transformational, both in the masterplan and the way we are trying to deliver it. The Estates Directorate is there to support all the amazing work of our students and researchers and that is where the recognition should be. Whilst I get the honour, it should actually be for the whole Directorate as due recognition to the incredible estates team that is contributing so much to the success of the University.”
Ann also has roles in SAUDE/AUDE and is involved in Construction Scotland, Women in Property, and acts as a trustee of the Museum of Scotland.
