Anthony Lorenz Wins ‘Most Promising Newcomer’ at the PROPS 2021 Awards after 55 years in the industry.
Anthony Lorenz was thrilled to be awarded the trophy for the Most Promising Newcomer, celebrating an individual’s contribution to the industry. The PROPS Awards is a prestigious event that has previously celebrated doyennes such as Gerald Ronson CBE, Irvine Sellar (The Shard), Tony Pidgley CBE (Berkeley Homes), Sir John Beckwith CBE, Sir John Ritblat, Sol Kerzner and Mike Slade to name but a few.
He was the first Property Consultant to win the award, mentioning in passing that he wouldn’t have needed to run a general estate agency acting for multiple clients if he handled all the property work for one or two of the above names.
‘Here’s to the next 20 years!’ he said.
Nominated for the Renewal Award at the EG Awards
The Lorenz Consultancy was also shortlisted for the ‘Renewal Award’ at the EG 2021 Awards – a property industry highlight which took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane at the end of October.
Seeking to ‘celebrate those businesses that had to pivot, reinvent or reimagine their businesses in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic’, the nomination for this special Renewal Award was recognition of the many ways The Lorenz Consultancy has sought to support businesses in the office and hospitality sector throughout the pandemic.
These activities included spearheading a ‘Give Hospitality a Break’ petition, running a series of educational webinars to provide advice to Tenants and Landlords. MD Anthony Lorenz has become a familiar and supportive presence to those in the property industry. He said of the nomination, “So flattered to have been nominated as a Finalist at the EG Awards 2021, for the Company who have changed their business round to cope with the effects of Covid-19. Those who know us will know that we went straight into Corporate Recovery, keeping relationships together between Tenants, Landlords, and Bankers. The Government has now outlined the sanity of achieving that goal. Tenants and Landlords have had a tough time, in a period which was/ is very difficult to forecast the future, but finally, we are noticing mutual ground being achieved between the parties”.
Unfortunately, whilst extremely proud to be a finalist in the EG Awards, we didn’t secure the victory. Congratulations to Shaftesbury, the winners.
