Grenville Turner, Group Chief Executive of Countrywide said: "It is a huge honour and privilege to have won this award. Being nominated by industry colleagues is a genuine compliment and I look forward to seeing how I can steer Countrywide to further success with the support of my senior team. I've been extremely lucky to have worked with a number of inspirational people during my 35 years in lending and property markets.

"2010 has been a tremendous year for Countrywide - our success in estate agency, mortgages, lettings, surveying, conveyancing and financial services is a credit to the ongoing commitment of our staff and senior team. It is also a testament to the continued support we receive from our corporate clients - both large and small."
