Robert Forrester, Vertu Motors' chief executive, said: “I very much look forward each year to reviewing the nominations and to announcing the winners of this competition. It highlights the talent and dedication of many of our colleagues and never fails to remind me that behind the success of our Group lies in individuals delivering the highest level of performance and customer experience.

“This year saw the strongest line up of nominations to date and selecting the winners was challenging. Our business is built on the passion and integrity of all our colleagues and this is an opportunity to celebrate success and reward brilliance.
