European award

ERA Portugal was awarded the European Franchise Sales Prize for the third consecutive year at the ERA Europe Gala in Brussels on January 14.

ERA representatives from a total of 19 European countries attended the gala but it was the Portuguese franchise that took the accolade home.

François Gagnon, president of ERA Europe, handed over the prize to Américo Lima from ERA Portugal.

ERA Portugal told the Algarve Resident that the award is proof of their investment in innovation and attracting and retaining staff.

The franchise is now planning to open a further 26 agencies in the country.
