Vertu Motors has recognised the “hard work and talent” work of its staff during its annual Masters Awards.
The awards, now in their fifth year, are a chance for the group’s chief executive, Robert Forrester, to acknowledge the achievements of colleagues from across Vertu’s Group of 127 outlets.
The winners were presented with their awards by BBC presenter Steph McGovern and Robert Forrester at a ceremony held at luxury hotel, Oulton Hall, on the outskirts of Leeds.
Covering all aspects of the business, the awards’ winners were chosen from more than 5,000 colleagues for their outstanding work and for demonstrating character, attitude, drive, energy and talent.
Forrester said: “As a Group we are passionate about recognising and rewarding hard work and talent, and these awards are a chance to do just that.
“Vertu Motors has enjoyed another great year, so it is only right that we honour colleagues that have made this success possible with a fantastic night of celebrations.
“This year we have some new faces at the awards, which showcases some of the new talent we have in our team as well as many long-serving colleagues.
“Every colleague nominated has performed to an exceptional level and as we continue to grow, it gets harder to win an award.
“Every winner deserves recognition, but so do the teams supporting them across the business.”
Following the ceremony, Britain’s Got Talent finalists Old Men Grooving entertained and attendees danced the night away with live music from the Rat Pack, who treated them to their own renditions of classic swings songs.
