London, 4 December 2015Deacon scoops 2015 Block Insurer of the Year award
Deacon Insurance, Arthur J. Gallagher’s specialist blocks of flats insurance broker, has been named Block Insurer of the Year at the 2015 Property Management Awards, hosted by leading trade publication News on the Block.
More than 800 property professionals came together for the prestigious awards ceremony at Wembley Stadium, where Deacon went one better than its finalist place last year to scoop the top prize.
With over 25 years’ specialist experience, Deacon impressed the independent judging panel and voters by demonstrating its achievements in four key areas: having an innovative and profitable strategy; response to customer needs; product innovation; and quality of service and customer satisfaction.
Nigel Feast, Managing Director of Deacon, said: “We’re delighted that the industry and leaseholders voted for us to win this prestigious award. The judges commented that our fantastic commitment to delivering outstanding customer service was a deciding factor. The votes from our customers makes this win particularly pleasing, in that it was not just down to the judges’ decision – our customers backed them up! A big thank you to the team for all their hard work, as always, throughout the year. It was a great night.”
Deacon’s latest award follows the news earlier this year that MD Nigel had been named in News on the Block’s ‘Hot 100’ — as one of the most influential people in the residential leasehold property sector — for the third year running.
