West One Loans, the largest privately funded bridging lender in the UK, has announced the winners of its competition for ten brokers to win place on a group trip to Las Vegas for three nights.

The lucky ten are:

Danny Waters, Enterprise Finance

Amy Smith, Northstar

James Craig, Simmonds

Miranda Khadr, Khadr Commercial

Mark Sharpe, Coreco

Steve Mettler, Loans Warehouse

To be eligible for the prize, brokers had to complete at least one loan within the qualifying period, which ran from 5th March 2012 to 31st May 2012. Brokers were given one entry per loan application, so were able to enter the competition multiple times depending on the number of loans they completed with West One during the qualifying period. The winners were chosen via a random prize draw and notified by email in early June.

West One will fly the group to Vegas, where they will spend three nights at the Bellagio, the luxury hotel made world famous by its dancing fountains. It also gained repute as the setting for the remake of the film ‘Ocean’s Eleven’.

The prize includes return flights, and gives the winning introducers an exciting itinerary laid on by West One Loans while the group is in Las Vegas.

Duncan Kreeger, chairman of West One Loans, explained: “Our competition winners are getting an enjoyable and thoroughly deserved reward for the contributions they made over the last few months.

As well as being a lot of fun, the trip is about saying a big thank you to them and cementing our relationships with them. We place the highest value on the strong personal relationships we have with our introducers. I’m just hoping none of them lead me too far astray in the casinos!”

Mark Abrahams, CEO of West One Loans, added: “We can’t wait, and I bet they can’t either. This is just the first in a series of exciting introducer led promotions we have planned over the next few months, so watch this space.”
