The New Year dawns, the GATES way
The Annual GATES PCM New Year Eve Dinner and Dance 2015 was yet again grandiose affair, with long serving members of the GATES Family and new members getting together in a night of fun, celebration and merriment on the 31st of December 2015.
The 2015 edition of this momentous event was held at the St Regis Singapore’s John Jacob Ballroom and played host to 250 guests that included Management, Clients, Associates, Friends and Staff of GATES PCM Construction Ltd.
What made this year even more special, was GATES PCM Construction Ltd celebrating its 15th year of incorporation since its start in year 2000. The event was made even more glamorous with its awards theme that saw guests receiving awards in categories such as Long Service, Best Dressed, Most Sporting and Best Dancer.
The event started with all the fanfare of an awards ceremony during the red-carpet themed cocktail session, which featured a red carpet walk that ended at a photo wall. Guests were serenaded by a strings quartet before they entered the immaculate ballroom and were treated to a night of reminiscence, entertainment and scrumptious Indian-fusion cuisine.
Amongst several highlights of the event were speeches from key members of the GATES Family such as Director of GATES PCM, Mr. Sivanessan, who chronicled the 15-year history of GATES PCM Construction Ltd, Chairman of FTMS, Mr. B.S. Mangat, who shared about his relationship with Dato Sri Krishna and the financial strength of the company, Senior Vice President of GATES PCM, Mr. Dexter Allan, who delivered the company performance review for year 2015 and Director of GATES PCM Integrated Services Pte Ltd, Mr. Nazarisham, who delivered his company’s performance review for 2015 as well.
The main focus of the event however, was the release of GATES PCM Construction Ltd’s official corporate video and the launch of its official corporate publication. Both the video and the publication were fitting tokens for the celebration of the company’ 15th anniversary as they chronicled not only the company’s history but also its progress and future plans.
As the GATES Family entered into festivity, they were entertained by a host of acts that included, Samba Dancers, Capoeira exponents, Belly Dance Artists and Comedian Rishi Budhrani, who was also the host for the evening. The GATES Family celebrated as one in ushering in the New Year.
However, right after the countdown, came the moment of double celebration. The GATES Family celebrated its patriarch, Dato Sri Krishna’s birthday in style with a cake in the shape of a Bentley Car.
Director of GATES PCM Construction (M) Sdn. Bhd. Mr Magindran, who travelled from Kuala Lumpur with his team to join in the festivities said: “The whole event was very well organised and everything went smoothly. It is truly one of the best events I have ever seen and this just inspires GATES Family members like myself to strive for excellence.”
The night ended with a lucky draw, which featured amazing prices like an Iphone 6S and a trip for 2 to Sydney. The winner of the top prize also walked away with the Lady Luck Award, capping off the awards night in fitting fashion.
With such a magnificent start to 2016, there is no doubt that GATES PCM Construction Ltd and its subsidiaries are ready for yet another successful business year.
