For the second consecutive year, Alan Young, managing director of Optimus, has won the Business Leader: Conveyancer category at the highly acclaimed British Mortgage Awards.
The British Mortgage Awards recognise the standout achievements of the most deserving individuals from across the UK’s mortgage industry. Members of the industry gathered at a ceremony at London’s Park Plaza Hotel to hear the winners being announced.
Alan was shortlisted for his proactive approach to delivering a friendly, professional and seamless service to customers throughout the pandemic, which led Optimus to achieving a record commercial results – including a 253% year-on-year revenue growth, and successfully securing several key strategic partnerships with Molo Finance, YourKeys, Moneyfacts, Teclet and 27Tec whilst formally renewing contracts with Yopa, MoneySupermarket, Fluent, eKeeper Group, Sesame Bankhall Group and London and Country.
Simon Brown, CEO of Optimus’ parent company, Landmark Information Group, said: “In 2020, we were proud that Alan won the Business Leader: Conveyancer category at the British Mortgage Awards, and it comes as no surprise at all that he has once again been recognised. In the last year, Alan has been instrumental in leading the team to deliver even greater financial results, colleague engagement and service results, despite having to onboard new colleagues and conveyancers whilst working from home throughout Covid. He is a truly great leader and should feel rightfully proud to have been recognised for his leadership, market knowledge and drive to continually succeed.”
Alan Young was delighted to receive the award, “During what has been an incredibly tough year for the industry as a whole, and so to be recognised as the Business Leader for the conveyancing industry for the second time is really quite something. I wish to acknowledge my team as I believe they really make Optimus what it is today – this award is for us all.”
