North American Convention

North American Convention

On November 17, 2012, offices from across North America made the trip to the Liberty Centre in Jersey City to celebrate the achievements of 2012 at the North American Rally.

From across the river in Manhattan, through the skies from California, up the freeway from Pennsylvania and across the border from Canada, delegates arrived for the pinnacle event of the year.

Recently promoted Manager, Jamal Holley, welcomed the delegates to the convention and introduced the speakers for the day, including the Chairman of the Appco Group, Mr Chris Niarchos, who spoke about the successes of 2012 and plans for expansion across North America in 2013.

Country Head Chris Rudge reinforced what makes the Appco Group so special and successful before opening the award categories and bringing forward the first recipients of many well deserved awards for the day. Damien Bosher and Regan Vick, responsible for the expansion into California with a brand the new Sports division, respectively spoke about their experiences and successes within the Appco Group, before special guest, Vice President Shane Ward, having travelled all the way from Australia, addressed the company delegates. Country Head Will Lyon bought both enthusiasm and education as he addressed the crowd before announcing even more award winners.

The second special guest of the day, the latest promotion to Vice President within the Appco Group, Ali Mir, bought the crowd to its feet with one of his trademark inspirational speeches.

Chris Niarchos wrapped up the day with a congratulations to everyone and everything that has been achieved in 2012 across North America, and wished everyone all the success in the closing weeks, before reiterating that 2012 is just the beginning and with everything in place across the continent, 2013 will be record breaking across the counties.
