MOLLINGTON-BASED Grosvenor BNI Chapter is celebrating after its members came home with a hatful of awards at this year’s regional BNI Cheshire & North Wales members’ conference.
Among the winners at the event, held at the Wychwood Park Hotel in Crewe, were Painter and Decorator Rob Brookfield, who was highly commended in the New Member of the Year category, and accountant John Hunt, who was highly commended in the Member of the Year category and was among the elite few to achieve maximum points in 2012 on the organisation’s key performance indicators.
John’s firm, Pursglove and Brown, also sponsored two of the 12 awards.
But it was the chapter’s previous leadership team that took the ultimate prize as it claimed the accolade of Leadership Team of the Year.
The team, who changed over at the beginning of April, was recognised for its efforts in helping the chapter grow in size and climb the regional rankings as well as for its overall performance throughout the year.
And it’s not the first time the chapter, which meets every Tuesday at The Oaks Golf Club, has tasted success as the awards follow hot on the heels of the group being named BNI Chapter of the Month four times during 2012 at the networking organisation’s area directors’ meetings.
The chapter as a whole was also nominated for the Chapter of the Year, and was highly commended.
Current chapter director Dave Tilston, of Tower Flooring, said “To have so many nominations and winners is a great honour for the chapter.
“The awards are voted for by members across the whole of Cheshire and North Wales so to be recognised by our peers is even more special.
“I would like to say congratulations to Rob and John for their commendations and say thank you to Tim, Nick and Karen for the foundations they built during their time on the leadership team. I look forward to seeing more members receiving prizes next year.”
The chapter’s area director, Paul Murray, who was also named as Director of the Year, presented the chapter members with their awards at its most recent meeting.
