Phil Burgan's Lifetime Achievement Award

Phil Burgan, Executive Chairman of Maria Mallaband Care Group (MMCG) has recently received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Knight Frank UK Luxury Care Home Awards.

This was in recognition of his exceptional contribution to the sector during his illustrious 25-year career.

Knight Frank, the UK’s leading global property adviser revealed the winners of the sixth edition of the awards at the in-person ceremony in October.

Phil founded Maria Mallaband Care Group (named after his late grandmother) in 1996. Since then, the company has expanded organically and through acquisition, 

and gained a reputation for providing superb quality care homes and services.


On receiving the award, Phil commented, “I am incredibly humbled to have received this award. When I look back over the past 25 years, it makes me proud to reflect on 

the positive impact that MMCG has had on the lives of each and every person who has lived and worked with us. After all, that is what this sector is all about. 

I certainly couldn’t have done it without an incredible group of people around me.”


Knight Frank’s 2022 Luxury Care Home Guide lists the UK’s top 100 luxury care homes and recognises three overall winners, each of which are judged on the 

quality of care they provide, the design of their homes and the strength of any renovation and refurbishment work undertaken. 

The Lifetime Achievement Award was presented in addition to the three main awards.
