SINGAPORE, 25 November 2016 – Sime Darby Property reinforced its position as a leading property developer in Malaysia and South East Asia, by winning the Best Developer (South East Asia) award at the South East Asia Property Awards (SEAPA) 2016 held in Singapore last night.

This is the first Best Developer (South East Asia) award win for Sime Darby Property. The developer qualified as an award contender after securing the Best Developer (Malaysia) award at the South East Asia Property Awards (Malaysia) 2016 held in Kuala Lumpur in August this year. Previously, Sime Darby Property bagged the Best Developer (Malaysia) award in 2013.

The ceremony saw country-level SEAPA award champions from Malaysia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam vying for the coveted regional title of Best Developer (South East Asia).

Sime Darby Property Managing Director Dato’ Ir. Jauhari Hamidi said: “The recognition of Sime Darby Property as the Best Developer not only in Malaysia, but in South East Asia by such esteemed industry experts is further testament of our commitment as a trusted developer. We are honoured to receive this award and our heartfelt appreciation goes to the organisers of SEAPA (South East Asia) 2016.”

The SEAPA, which commenced 11 years ago is renowned for having a fully audited judging system. Leveraging upon its experience of monitoring contests and award systems around the world, BDO, one of the biggest accounting firms in the world, was entrusted with overseeing the entire judging process to ensure that the judging was conducted fairly and with integrity. BDO has been working with the organisers of the Property Awards for the past nine years.

“We will continue to look ahead in pursuit of maintaining our leadership position and standards in the industry. Winning the South East Asia Property Awards provide us with the motivation to strive harder on our unwavering journey of building sustainable communities and boosting the Sime Darby Property name both locally and on the international stage,” Dato’ Jauhari added.

The regional SEAPA awards spearheaded by PropertyGuru, Asia’s leading online property portal group, served as the grand finale for the ASEAN chapter of the 11-year-old Asia Property Awards series, where top and emerging names in the real estate industry gathered at the prestigious event.
