Mortgage company takes top title at The Business Excellence Awards
April 29th, 2016
On Thursday night at the Business Excellence Awards, Essex-based business, Zing Mortgages, took the title for Best Overall Company and were also finalists in the Best Service-based Business and Fastest Growing categories.
Paul Flavin who owns Zing was thrilled to collect the award at a black tie event at Celtic Manor organised by the world’s number one business coaching firm, ActionCOACH. Paul explained, “This award came as a complete shock and was very unexpected. Given the company we were in, I was proud to have been shortlisted in two categories, but to win the evening’s top award just blew me away.”
Located in Southend-on-Sea, the business was established in 2010, rebranding as Zing in 2013 to give members of the public access to quality mortgage advice at a time and place that best suits them. This is achieved by ensuring that advisers have the maximum amount of time to spend with clients. Essential compliance and administration is dealt with by a separate, highly systemised team, coached to deliver consistently brilliant results enabling clients to receive effective and accurate communication throughout the whole mortgage process.
He added, “Working with Lucas has made a real difference to the way we approach business. Our weekly meetings have proven invaluable in remaining focused. We are constantly setting goals and measuring results, looking at how systems and processes can be improved, which allows us to deliver a high quality service, consistently. I would urge anyone in business to seek the support of a business coach, it’s not a sign of failing but more proof that you are serious about taking your business to its full potential. After all, name me a top sportsman who doesn’t have a coach.”
Esssex’s multi-award-winning business coach, Lucas Vigilante, attended the ceremony with Zing, “When you see the list of finalists, what Paul and his team at Zing achieved by winning Best Overall Company, the very top award at the Business Excellence Awards, is overwhelming. His dedication to measure and test every aspect of his business, breaking each area down in to its smallest component parts, improving them one at a time, and then systemising them from the ground up, has resulted in this wonderful result. When Paul was presented with the award by both Brad Sugars, ActionCOACH founder, and the first Welsh Billionaire, Sir Terry Matthews, I had to pinch myself and remember it was Paul's refusal to enter any awards until he believed he could win, that made us wait this long! An outstanding individual and an outstanding team.”
