Yacht broker Lees-Buckley receives new award
Alex Lees-Buckley, sales broker at Camper and Nicholsons, was awarded the first 2016 Richard Earp Award during the MYBA and ICOMIA cocktail evening on Sept. 28 during the Monaco Yacht Show.
Fraser Yachts created the award for the yacht brokerage industry to honor Mr. Earp after his death this year. Nominees are judged on characteristics including transparency, fair and ethical behaviour, charisma and style.
“I am very touched on a personal level to be the recipient of the very first Richard Earp Award which I shall cherish always,” Lees-Buckley said in a press release. “A great loss to all, he will not be forgotten and through this award I am confident that his name will live on in yachting for a very long time as the reference as to how we should all strive to be.”
