Richard Whitney, managing director at David Dexters, said: “We are thrilled to be a finalist in the awards. Our business success is down to our team - who all put in 100 per cent effort.  We give them the tools to complete their jobs to a high standard and ask for regular feedback to ensure they are happy in their working environment.

“We understand the importance of growing industry knowledge and we make sure that we provide the support they need to be knowledgeable, happy and motivated - which in turn gives a great service to our customers.”
