Mark Coverdale has thanked his Coversure colleagues and industry members for the recognition he received at the UK Broker Awards. Mark was awarded an Achievement Award for his lifelong work in the industry at the event. Mark was humbled and had this to say:
‘Everyone kept it a complete secret from me, bless them. So, you could have knocked me over with a feather when it dawned on me that I was the one. We were all told at the start that any lucky recipient should move quickly to the stage, take their award, smile for a picture then leave the stage quickly. It was only when I was on the stage they indicated some words were required!’
The award is the only award of the evening where the recipient is asked to make an acceptance speech. He thanked everyone who had helped at Coversure and congratulated the hard-working Coversure franchise holders that have made Coversure the success it is today.
Mark continued to say:
‘I could only have got this award if there was a good, decent business standing behind me. It is only by my colleagues’ energies and inventiveness that I had the chance to steal their limelight. This award is not in recognition of my achievement but of their collective achievements. But if they don’t mind, I will look after it for everyone on my mantelpiece.’
