At the awards lunch 18 customer advisors, nominated by their regional sales managers, were recognised for their outstanding performance in the branch network.

The overall winner award was then presented to Simon Scarlett, Assistant Manager at Leeds Building Society’s Chapel Allerton branch at 3 Stainbeck Corner, Chapel Allerton, Leeds, LS7 3PG.
