EMPLOYEES from commercial property agency Innes England jumped in the saddle and clocked up 100 miles cycling across the East Midlands – in just one day.
The firm took on the two-wheeled challenge on Friday, 9 June to celebrate being crowned the Most Active Agent in the East Midlands for the tenth consecutive year in the Estates Gazette Interactive (EGi) deals competition.
Twelve people cycled across the region, taking in all three of the company’s offices in Nottingham, Leicester and Derby in the process.
Tim Garratt, managing director at Innes England, said: “The team were enthusiastically cheered on once the ride had been completed at the end of a long day at our Nottingham office.
“It was a great chance for the team to visit all three of Innes England’s offices in the East Midlands and show they are active in more ways than one.”
The dedicated staff who took part in the cycle were managing director Tim Garratt, director Peter Doleman, head of asset management Gary Woodward, head of retail Ben Taylor, surveyor Matt Howson and associate director Paul Rogers.
They were joined by family members and friends Lynn Doleman, Craig Watson and Liz Cartwright.
Director Nick Hosking, associate director Chris Wright and property administrator Gillian Minogue also joined in for the last leg from Innes England’s Derby office to Nottingham.
The riders represented all three office locations and all four of Innes England’s discipline-based structure; agency, professional, asset management and building surveying.
The EGi deals competition is designed to establish the agents completing the largest volume of deals throughout the year. The competition is an independent survey, conducted by a research team, which covers commercial property transactions.
Throughout the East Midlands, Innes England completed more than 400 deals across the industrial, office, retail, leisure and investment sectors for its clients.
Three agents from Innes England – Mr Hosking and associate directors Jenny Clarke and Scott Osborne – were also named as ‘Dealmaker of the Year’ for Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire respectively. To win the titles, the agents completed more deals than their competitors over the past 12 months.
