REGIONAL FOCUS
Our focus hasn’t changed and remains firmly on the recruitment, training and development of exceptional people who understand the role they play in helping their branch to achieve the potential that sits within its market.

STRATEGIES TO DELIVER
We continue to strengthen our network, and as it intensifies, so too does the inter-network activity that feeds subsequent parts of the business, either within or between the divisions. A relentless focus on impairment – be it quality, efficiency, sales growth or IT will enable us to strengthen results, branch by branch.
