Bob Toor wins Broker of the Year at the BCA awards

The Business Centre Association (BCA) has awarded Bob Toor of Search Office Space the Broker Representative of the year award for 2014. The awards ceremony took place on Friday the 28th of November at the Sheraton Park Lane Hotel in London.

The BCA’s annual ceremony is the landmark industry event of the workspace calendar. The flexible workspace industry is generating £2billion of income to UK plc according to recent reports form the IDP and Snapdragon consulting. The BCA present awards that recognise key leaders amongst workspace operators, trade suppliers and broker representatives around the UK, who are contributing to the progress of the rapid growth of workspace solutions.

Candidates for the award are based on nominations from clients and evaluated by a panel of independent judges. The nominations are each supported by specific examples of the level of service being received and whether that service has provided each customer with additional revenue opportunities.

Bob Toor had this to say: ‘I was absolutely ecstatic to receive this award. I had no expectation of winning the award and was touched that I was so highly valued by my peers in the industry. I just try to do my job every day to the best of my ability and to receive an award for doing that us such an honour and makes me so proud. It was an amazing night and I felt privileged to be involved in an accolade for SOS Search Office Space as a whole."

Richard Smith, Founder and CEO of SOS Search Office Space said: “We are delighted that Bob Toor has been recognised by the BCA as the industry’s Broker Representative of the Year for 2014. It is so well deserved, as Bob has excelled at going above and beyond in terms of exceeding all of our clients’ expectations and on-going support for many years, and is a fine example of the level, quality and unrivaled service we deliver and offer all our clients.

Bob stands out as a committed and passionate individual that we are proud to have on the SOS team, and he serves as an excellent role model, especially to our new recruits.”

This is a quote from just one of the many that have commented on Bob’s achievement “A charming man. A man who does deals and wins business and leaves everyone involved (business centre, service providers and clients) with a smile on their face. Well-deserved recognition for a humble, talented man. Anyone can sell office space, the real skill is to pull off the win / win / win deal."
