LARGER-THAN-LIFE actor Brian Blessed helped Vertu Motors reward its top-performing colleagues at a ceremony in Leeds.
Vertu Motors inducted 27 new members into its Masters Club, which recognises colleagues from the group’s 125 dealerships who have excelled in their role and delivered outstanding levels of performance.
The winners were chosen from nominations made by their colleagues and 2019 saw a record number submitted.
The awards ceremony – held at the Queen’s Hotel – featured staff from every area of the business, with drivers, valeters, apprentices, sales executives and administration colleagues praised for their performance.
The glitzy event also featured Strictly star Anton du Beke tripping the light fantastic with regular professional partner Erin Boag and music from tribute act Killer Queen.
Robert Forrester, chief executive of Vertu Motors, said: ‘Recognising and rewarding excellent colleagues is one of our key values. The Masters Awards is an opportunity for us to thank our colleagues who go the extra mile, and in many cases do so over a very long period of time.
‘Each goes above and beyond to ensure customers receive the very best customer service. They represent the very best in the business, and I look forward to working with them to further develop their skills and help them be the best that they can be.’
