Nominations are now open for the third annual Richard Earp Award, which recognises ethical behaviour within the yacht brokerage industry.
Founded in 2016 and organised by the MYBA and LYBRA associations, the Richard Earp Award seeks to recognise outstanding work ethic of well-respected industry brokers.
It was established in the name of Fraser broker Richard Earp, who died in 2016 and was renowned for his exemplary conduct and fair negotiations as a broker.
The award seeks to recognise and reward the values demonstrated by Richard throughout his career, including transparency, fair and ethical behaviour, charisma and style.
The award criteria stipulate that nominees should be respected within the industry and have a well-established, active career as a broker.
The award will be judged by a group of senior figures, including MYBA president Gaye Joyeau-Bourgeois, LYBRA secretary general Eric Blair and last year’s award winner Peter Insull.
The award will then be represented jointly by MYBA and LYBRA at The Superyacht Show on May 8.
Nominations should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and accompanied by a supporting paragraph by Friday April 19. Brokers cannot nominate themselves.
