Sherry FitzGerald hosted their annual conference on Friday 12th February with an on-line attendance of over 250 professionals from across the company’s network of owned and franchised offices.
Des O’Malley, Managing Director, Sherry FitzGerald Countrywide said, “even without the fanfare associated with previous events, the gathering of all our colleagues nationally was so important and even more special this year”. An impressive line-up of speakers was followed by the annual awards. Mr. O’Malley announced “this year, yet again we saw the very highest standard of professionalism and excellence across the franchise network, a standard that our clients have come to expect of us. The finalists were all deserved of their position, but one had to shine through and this year, the Member of the Year is Sherry FitzGerald Declan Woods”
The awards program is designed to recognise the highest standards of professionalism and excellence across the franchise network. The targets are high, and while there is only one winner announced annually, the overall standard of excellence across the network was yet again of an exceptionally high standard.
Declan joined the Sherry FitzGerald network in 2015 and alongside his team of Sinead, Alison and Deirdre, they embraced change and adapted their business to encompass the Sherry FitzGerald 'know how' and technology with ease and enthusiasm.
Des O’Malley paid tribute to the “well-deserving and popular winners” “Since joining our network in 2015, Declan alongside his team of Sinead, Alison and Deirdre, have embraced change and adapted their business to encompass the Sherry FitzGerald 'know how' and technology with ease and enthusiasm. The team has successfully adjusted to change while consistently delivering exceptional customer experience along the way.”
Declan Woods accepted the award and paid tribute to the team, “We are humbled to have been chosen to receive this accolade and award. As a team we strive to be the best we can be, while embodying the core values of the Sherry FitzGerald group. Being part of the Sherry FitzGerald network is something we value, appreciate and are proud of, so to be chosen as the member of the year, we see as a reward for the team’s continuous ambition to serve our clients and customers in the most professional, unrivalled manner possible. In these challenging times we commit to ensuring our business model focuses on people, brand and technology and we look forward to servicing the property needs of people in our region for many years to come.”
