Confirming something all of us here at Brunel already knew, our MD Damien was recently awarded the Tony Sellon Good Egg Award at The Institute of Financial Planning’s (IFP) annual conference.
Held at Celtic Manor, Wales, Damien took to the stage to be officially hailed as a Good Egg by the IFP’s interim Chief Executive, Steve Gazzard.
Despite the light-hearted nature of the award’s name, it is actually a well-respected accolade in our industry. Carrying the name of Tony Sellon, a founder member of the IFP who passed away in 2001, the award recognises the individual whom the body feels has made an outstanding contribution to the success of the IFP itself.
The IFP is a not-for-profit, independent professional body for financial planners, operating with the sole mission to develop the profession and raise standards, for the benefit of consumers.
Steve commented that Damien had, ‘helped IFP staff with their own financial questions, had broken a holiday short to look at a venue and is always willing to provide constructive feedback on IFP initiatives’. Nominees for the award are suggested by IFP members and staff.
Congratulations to Damien from all at Brunel!
