Bournecoast MD on Short List for Langtry Awards40

April 2011

BOURNECOAST Property Agents are delighted that their Managing Director is in the group of semi-finalists for one of this year’s Langtry Manor Awards.

Des Simmons was voted for by his 15 strong staff, 13 of whom are female, and has been short listed for the Employer of the Year Award, sponsored by The Coast FM radio.

The Langtry Manor Business Women Awards has been set up ultimately to reward the achievement of women in business in the local area.  There are 11 award categories all sponsored by female friendly businesses and only two are eligible to be won by a man.

Two of the categories will be voted on by the public for the Best Mother and the Best Employer.

The nominees had to submit entry forms and videos in support of their applications and the final number has been whittled down to just 12 candidates. 

The organisers said, “Having viewed all of your entries and videos and taking into consideration everything you have been doing so successfully for women in business…” they had not been able to come to a top ten decision.  However, the good news is that as a result they decided to increase their award to a Top 12 due the high calibre of entrants.

Des said, “It is an honour to be nominated for this award, especially as it is my staff who put me forward.  It means a great deal to me that we run a happy ship and we have a very healthy working environment.”

Voting will take place via The Coast FM website for one week from 1st April so to cast your vote for Des and Bournecoast, please make a note to visit Coast’s FM website between then and 8th April which is the cut off date.

The successful finalists will all be announced by 10th April and then invited to the exclusive awards ceremony dinner at Langtry Manor on Thursday 19th May 2011.
