PETTY’S SHORTLISTED AT THE 2013 LANCASHIRE BUSINESS AWARDS
Property experts, Petty’s continue with their award winning streak as the firm is announced as a finalist in the Property Firm of the Year category in the coveted Lancashire Business Awards, founded by business networking and lobbying group Downtown in Business.
Petty’s, who are members of the Relocation Agent Network, won the same award last year and the team are feeling buoyant about the direction the business is taking with Director, Brent Forbes saying: “We were incredibly proud to win this award last year and hope we can retain our crown in what is a really competitive category. As a Burnley and Pendle-based business we are of course still celebrating with pride that Burnley has been recognised as the ‘Most Enterprising in the UK’ so let’s hope we can add to the trophy cabinet as well.”
The accolade follows what has been a strong year for the business which has seen it buck trends with significant levels in property sales as well as consolidate its position in the East Lancashire business scene with a number of acquisitions and deals being done. The nomination is also not the first this year either, with Petty’s exclusive lifestyle magazine, Your Village Life produced by Kara Rose PR and RootFiftyTwo being shortlisted in the Best External Publication category in the highly regarded CIPR North West PRide awards.
Chief Executive of Downtown in Business, Frank McKenna, said: “Each year we proudly recognise the hard work and dedication of the region’s best businesses; these awards are always very competitive and it’s great to see so many participants.”
Now in their seventh year, the Lancashire Business Award winners are set to be announced at a spectacular event at the Stanley House Hotel on 7th November. Attracting around 180 delegates the awards are considered one of the most exclusive events in the local business calendar.
