Last month (November 2014) we were pleased to attend the annual QSi Professional Drivers Awards at the Effingham Park Hotel, Sussex. This is only the second year the Awards have taken place and we were honoured to find ourselves nominated once again in 2 separate categories.

  1. England Limousines were nominated in the Chauffeur Company of the Year Award 11 – 30 vehicles.

  2. Clive Pearce, one of our Professional Chauffeurs, was nominated for Professional Driver of the Year Award.

The evening is attended by what can only be described as the best in the business from the Chauffeur Driven and Private Hire world. Representatives from all the leading manufacturers of prestige vehicles that specialise in executive transportation were also present at the QSi Awards. Many of them picking up awards of their own for vehicles that have been selected for their Luxury, Practicality, Environmental Credentials and ultimately the Car of the Year.

Being nominated for an award in such elite company is praise itself and to win, well that’s just the icing on the cake.

QSi Chauffeur Company of the Year 2104

We were very proud to see England Limousines on the big screen in the finals and then to receive the Bronze Award for Chauffeur Company of the Year. It’s great recognition for all the hard work our team puts in throughout the year.

Professional Driver Editor Mark Bursa commented: “Our Bronze QSi Award winner has been here before. England Limousines won the same award in 2013, and its highly professional and personal approach to high-end chauffeuring for business, travel and entertainment clients is still much admired.”

He continued: “The company even transplants itself to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, to offer its customary service to clients attending the event. And England Limousines is passing its skills on to the whole industry through its own in-house Chauffeur Training business.”

QSi Professional Driver of the Year 2104

That last awards of the evening are for the Professional Driver of the year and this year, the judges had a particularly difficult job selecting just 3 from the list of quality finalists. As a result, Clive Pearce picked up a well deserved joint Bronze Award along side Paul Alleman form Tristar. Clive is an exceptional member of our team and it was great to see him receive his awards from BMW’s Adam Harley.

Professional Driver Editor Mark Bursa commented: “Clive Pearce perfectly fits the profile of the ideal business chauffeur. Always smartly turned out, polite, courteous and punctual. England Limousines’ success is built on high-quality service. Without drivers such as Clive, that would not be possible.”
