A local signage centre has beaten off competition from 25 other businesses in the FASTSIGNS UK franchise network, before securing the Sales Achievement of the Year award at an industry event.
FASTSIGNS® Leeds, based on York Road, came first place in the category, for its projects completed during 2021. The team was presented the award at this year’s FASTSIGNS UK convention and awards ceremony, which took place at Staffordshire’s St George’s Park.
Each year, the global signage and visual communications specialist’s annual convention recognises the UK franchise network’s successes over the past 12 months. It brings the FASTSIGNS UK teams and suppliers together to help share industry knowledge, culminating in a grand gala dinner after the two-day convention.
Rebecca Holiday, senior account manager at the centre, also came second in the race for the Sales Person with Highest Revenue category, contributing significantly towards the centre’s winning total.
While her colleague, production specialist, Cliff Ward, was runner up for the Employee of the Year award, and received high praise for his dedication to the network and proactive approach.
Andy Simpson, director at FASTSIGNS® Leeds celebrated the success of the centre:
“It’s been a pleasure to help local businesses boost their marketing efforts after they reopened, following a number of national lockdowns this year. But the connections we’ve formed and the scale of the projects we’ve undertaken have been due to our fantastic team, and their commitment to always going the extra mile for our customers.
“Rebecca is constantly dedicated to our clients, and has been for over 20 years. She’s a real asset to our company and I congratulate her hugely. Another key team member is Cliff, who absolutely deserves the recognition he’s received - nothing is ever too difficult for him and he consistently ensures our jobs are always completed to the highest standard.”
Speaking after the awards evening, John Davies, managing director at FASTSIGNS UK said:
“The determination of our team never fails to impress me. After navigating the difficulties of Covid-19, every franchise has emerged stronger than ever. They’ve been there as industries have reopened again, helping them to realise lots of exciting marketing projects."
“FASTSIGNS® Leeds is a prime example of what can happen with excellent teamwork. With so much experience, the staff are truly experts in their field and the connections they’ve formed with their local business community are strong. The impressive sales figures are testament to their great team culture, and we’re sure the centre will continue with this positive outlook into 2022.”
FASTSIGNS® Leeds has been running for 26 years, completing numerous high-profile projects for established clients, including Trinity Leeds shopping centre.
