Christmas came early for one lucky broker who won a trip for two to spend a week on Sir Richard Branson’s private island Necker last week.
Clayton Shipton, managing director of Essex-based CLS Financial Advice, was the first winner to be picked out of Virgin Money’s intermediary feedback campaign that it launched in October this year.
Everyone that logged on to Virgin Money’s intermediary site and was asked to mark on a scale of 1-10 how likely they’d be to recommend the brand was entered into the poll.
Virgin Money’s head of intermediary sales Richard Tugwell handed the prize at Shipton’s offices last weke.
He said: “The Best of Virgin campaign is all about getting feedback from our intermediary partners so we can improve our business, and we’ve seen a fantastic response with some really valuable feedback.
“This month’s prize is a box for ten people at a Newcastle United match, so I’d encourage intermediaries to go on our website and enter again.”
There were also reports last week that Virgin Money was eyeing a potential stock market flotation.
