The First Annual MAVTA Awards - Marshall Achievement, Values and Teamwork Awards
A gala dinner was held last Friday in Kings College, Cambridge for the first MAVTA awards ceremony. It was a highly enjoyable evening hosted by Austin Healey, the ex-England and British Lions rugby player.
There was an extremely high standard of nominations and we were thrilled to see Tim Phillips, General Manager from our York and Hull Honda businesses win the Group award for Leadership. He received as his prize a stay at the Ritz Hotel complete with theatre package. We hope that he and Vicki enjoy this richly deserved reward.
Though they didn’t win the team category, I was also delighted that Marshall Leasing team who were specially recognised for extolling our values so brilliantly when coming to the assistance of a colleague facing some very difficult times following a family bereavement.
I would also like to pay tribute to all of the other shortlisted nominees who had ensured that we had a very strong representation in all categories on the evening.

I hope those that attended enjoyed the evening and will be keen to ensure that they are at next year’s event which is already in the planning!
On the night, we saw a high standard of nominations from our sister companies in the Group and I know that given the number of talented and enthusiastic people that we employ in Marshall we will be able to have as many, if not more great nominations when the MAVTA nomination process starts again in the summer.
