Countrywide celebrate pole position with 400 high achievers


Friday, April 16, 2010

Countrywide invited more than 400 top achievers from across the UK to celebrate their success at two prestigious back-to-back award events held on 25th and 26th March 2010.

The annual Countrywide Chairman's League Awards recognise individual and team performances throughout its UK network of more than 1,200 offices.

Award-winning estate agents, mortgage consultants, letting and managing agents attended the two-day event, both of which enjoyed a Formula 1 theme. High achievers from Countrywide Residential Lettings attended a Grand Prix Gala Ceremony at the prestigious Whittlebury Hall Hotel, while estate agents, mortgage consultants and top performers from Countrywide's land and new homes team enjoyed full VIP treatment at the Williams RBS F1 Conference Centre.

Countrywide staff competed for 111 coveted awards during a year-long competition with awards reserved for the company"s most successful agents, branches, managing directors and support staff.

Robert Scarff, Managing Director of Countrywide Estate Agents, said: "2009 was a fantastic year for Countrywide with the second half of the year enjoying tremendous success and market share growth. I'm always impressed by the talented staff we see at these events which are a great opportunity to reward industry excellence. Plans are already underway to make the 2011 awards one to remember."

Some new faces joined the celebrations after several key acquisitions boosted Countrywide"s network to 42 high profile brands, including UK Sotheby"s International Realty.

John Hards, Co-Managing Director of Countrywide Residential Lettings, said: "2009 was a record breaking year in terms of income and annual profit growth with new teams from Accord Lettings, Hunters4homes and Andrew Reeves joining the celebrations. I'm especially proud of how we strive to reward everyone involved in our success, from branch staff and admin teams, right through to up-and-coming management teams and those reflecting the passion and commitment worthy of our discretionary Jake Hubbard Award." 

This was the second Chairman's Awards event since the passing of Jake Hubbard, a much-loved and sorely missed colleague from Countrywide Residential Lettings. Jake sadly lost his battle with Cystic Fibrosis in January 2009 at just 30 years old but his legacy lives on through a special award created in Jake's memory. Kerry Tipper was awarded The Jake Hubbard Award for her dedication and commitment to deliver training for a completely new back office system - demonstrating key qualities reflected in Jake's personality.
